Tribune News Service

Panchkula, December 22

The local unit of the Congress today released its manifesto for the Panchkula Municipal Corporation elections.

The 20-point manifesto was unveiled by Haryana Congress chief Kumari Selja's political adviser Ram Kishan Gujjar in the presence of former Deputy Chief Minister Chander Mohan and party's mayoral candidate Upinder Kaur Ahluwalia.

In the manifesto, the party promises primary focus on Covid-19 and seamless rollout of a vaccine, once it is available; strengthening of e-governance through e-contact centres; adequate and clean water supply; disbanding enhancement in several HSVP sectors; shifting of dumping ground from residential areas; beautification of Singh Nullah; end to stray cattle/dogs; rehabilitation of slum areas; setting up new fire stations; installation of CCTV cameras and frequent patrolling to check crime; free parking; proper maintenance and beautification of parks; upkeep of roads; building old-age homes; mobile dispensaries for seniors; setting up a modern library; installation of security gates in various sectors and better connectivity with Chandigarh and Zirakpur.

Congress manifesto is just a farce, says saffron party

The BJP called the Congress manifesto a farce, saying Upinder Kaur Ahluwalia did nothing for the development of the city during her previous five-year tenure as the Mayor. BJP's mayoral candidate Kulbhushan Goyal said sensible voters of Panchkula would not fall for fake promises by the Congress and they would choose BJP's development agenda in the forthcoming elections.
