January 20, 2022 10:44 AM

Shiv Kumar Sharma, KARNAL

 A 31-member Congress delegation handed over a memorandum to Tehsildar Raj Baksh in the name of the Chief Minister against the construction of an elevated flyover by Smart City at a cost of about Rs 200 crore in Karnal. The delegation was led by Congress District Convener Tarlochan Singh. He said that the administration and Smart City officials have not yet taken any opinion from the traders regarding this. The people of the city are getting angry with the Chief Minister regarding its construction. He informed that there is a smell of corruption in the construction of the bridge and it will affect the water drainage of the city. Smart City has decided to build a flyover from Sector 14 Haryana Nursing Home to Sant Nirankari Bhavan at a cost of Rs 200 crore. This flyover is being built to deal with traffic jams in the city


If a service line is made on a very wide road in the area from Sabzi Mandi Police Booth to Committee Chowk, then traffic can pass through the middle easily. The flyover scheme to be constructed from outside Railway Road Bikram Marg to Haryana Nursing Home will affect the business of thousands of shopkeepers. Rather, encroachments need to be removed with good parking, elevators, and ascending bridges to cross the road. The construction of flyover will affect the business of thousands of small and big shopkeepers in Railway Road, Committee Chowk, Old GT Road, Kunj Pura Road, Sabji Mandi Chowk, Karna Gate Market, Novelty Road, Sarafa Bazaar, Nehru Palace area but the beauty of the city.


On this occasion Satpal Jani, Krishna Bastada, Sikandar Sandhu Advocate, Badal Advocate, Jaswant Singh, Paramjit Bhardwaj, Surendra Nambardar, Rohit Joshi, Former Councilor Haridwari Lal, Hoshiar Singh, Karmapal Singh, Fakir Chand, Santosh Tejan, Usha Rajput, Pradhan Rinku Sauda, Daya Prakash, Naresh Chugh, Bhushan ji, Birwal Tanwar, Prem Malwania, Ramesh Jogi, Vinod Kala, Madan Arora, Charandev Kamra, Rohtash Pehlwan, Sunehra Valmiki, Gagan Mehta, Dalveer Singh etc. were present. District Congress bConvener Tarlochan Singh informed that the trade of Karnal and the people of the country was already affected due to Corona. Now business may recover, but the flyover project may prove to be an obstacle to progress again, he said.
