MOHALI: Former Health Minister Punjab and MLA Mohali Balbir Singh Sidhu held a meeting at Mundi Complex, Sector 70, Mohali and listened to the grievances of the people. He directed the authorities to resolve them immediately. Mayor Amarjit Singh Jeeti Sidhu, Senior Deputy Mayor Amrik Singh Somal, Deputy Mayor Kuljit Singh Bedi were specially present on the occasion.

It may be mentioned here that this is the first time in Mohali that a resolution has been passed by the Mohali Municipal Corporation to carry out development works worth crores of rupees within various housing societies in Mohali city. This did not happen before because the Municipal Corporation did not have the authority to operate within the societies.

Addressing a gathering of people on the occasion former Health Minister Punjab and  MLA Mohali Balbir Singh Sidhu said that the previous Municipal Corporation in Mohali had not taken any step for the societies of Mohali and he himself took personal interest through the Commissioner of Mohali Municipal Corporation. This resolution was passed by the Punjab Government and development work was started in the societies.

The former Health Minister said that in the municipal elections the people of Mohali had voted for the Congress party candidates who won by a landslide victory and Amarjit Singh Jeeti Sidhu was made the mayor and since then development works worth crores of rupees started in various housing societies in Mohali. He said that the people living in the societies of Mohali were fully entitled to the city like facilities and infrastructure as these residents pay their due property tax to the Mohali Municipal Corporation.

Former Health Minister and MLA Balbir Singh Sidhu said that Mohali Municipal Corporation has already undertaken development works worth Rs. 38 lakh and additional Rs 20 lakh would be spent for sewerage upgradation. He said that apart from this all the needs of the people in the society would be met by the Municipal Corporation.

Former Health Minister Mr. Balbir Singh Sidhu said that the entire constituency of Mohali was his own family and he had taken the responsibility of development here which he would never deny. He said that Mohali was a fast growing city and no shortage of funds would be allowed for its development. He said that he got crores of rupees due to Mohali Municipal Corporation from various departments including GMADA and besides this huge amount has also been given to the Municipal Corporation as government grant to help in the development of Mohali. He said that today development work was in full swing in every single part of Mohali and the Punjab government was always committed for the development of this important city.

On this occasion Mr. Baldev Singh, President, Mundi Complex and his entire team welcomed MLA Mr. Balbir Singh Sidhu on his arrival here. President Baldev Singh thanked MLA Balbir Singh Sidhu and said that this was the first time in the history of Mohali that due to the steps and efforts taken by MLA Sidhu, development works have started in the housing societies. He said that his entire team was standing firm with MLA Sidhu and in the forthcoming Assembly elections MLA Sidhu would be sent to the Assembly with a landslide victory.

A large number of residents and women of the colony including Councilor Pramod Mitra, former Councilor Surinder Singh Rajput, former President of Mundi Complex JP Singh, Sarabjit Singh, Manmohan Singh, Darshan Singh were present on the occasion.
