Badal woos Gidderbaha with generous grants

Gidderbaha April 13:

With an aim of making the residents of Gidderbaha Assembly segment, represented by ousted Manpreet Singh Badal for four times consecutively in state legislative assembly, happy, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal showered grants to the tune of crores of rupees for various development projects for the area.

Badal, who held functions in eight villages and this town in second round of sangat darshans, gave a grant of Rs 6 crore to local municipal council for various development works. He also gave grant of more than Rs 3 crore to panchayats of eight villages, including Kuraiwala, Husnar, Gurusar, Babania, Lundewala, Bhunder, Badnia and Karniwala. Ironically, till the time Manpreet Badal was a part of the SAD-BJP government, the Chief Minister did not hold any sangat darshan function in the area in the past four years.

Apart from local leadership, Badal was accompanied by Faridkot MP Paramjit Kaur Gulshan in the functions. The Chief Minister had held his first round of sangat darshan functions in eight villages this Assembly segment on April 8 and distributed grants of about Rs 3 crore. Badal also allocated 168 shops in the local grain market to commission agents.

Talking to mediapersons, Badal said the state government had directed the Department of Water Supply and Sanitation to get the samples of water from all the tubewell-based water works examined from a high-level laboratory or research centre within six months. This had been done with the aim that the people of the state could be supplied uranium and heavy metals free water for drinking purpose, he stated.

He said the SAD (B), which had fought for justice for every section of society, would not be impacted in any way due to the departure of Manpreet Badal. He said the state government had made arrangements for the smooth procurement of wheat crop, which had started arriving in different markets. Senior functionaries of the government had been put on job to see the procurement operations.
