पंजाब के ३ स्मार्ट सिटी में “स्वछता” की कसौटी पर एक भी सिटी खरी नहीं

[चंडीगढ़,पंजाब]पंजाब के ३ स्मार्ट सिटी में “स्वछता” की कसौटी पर एक भी सिटी खरी नहीं
खुशहाल पंजाब के अमृतसर+लुधियाना+जालंधर को बहु प्रचारित स्मार्ट सिटी प्रोजेक्ट में शामिल किया गया है लेकिन इनमे से एक भी सिटी स्वच्छ सर्वेक्षण में टॉप १०० स्वच्छ शहरों में स्थान नहीं प्राप्त कर सकी|
केंद्र के हाउसिंग एंड अर्बन अफेयर के मंत्रालय की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार एक लाख से अधिक की आबादी वाले ४८५ शहरों में स्वच्छ सर्वेक्षण कराया गया था|इनमे से पंजाब के १७ शहरों को शामिल किया गया|दुर्भाग्य से इनमे से एक शहर भी टॉप १०० में स्थान प्राप्त नहीं कर सका|
लुधियाना को १३७ रैंकिंग दी गई है
अमृतसर ने २०८ रैंकिंग हासिल की
जबकि जालंधर को २१५ पर संतोष करना पढ़ा है |बेशक ये रैंकिंग पिछले वर्ष की तुलना में बढ़ी है लेकिन स्मार्ट सिटी प्रोजेक्ट में आने के बावजूद टॉप १०० में भी स्थान ना पाने के कारण प्रदेश में कांग्रेस और केंद्र में भाजपा की सरकार की कार्यप्राणाली पर प्रश्न चिन्ह लगाने स्वाभाविक ही है

लुधियाना को स्मार्ट सिटी बनाने के लिए कैप्टेन सरकार के हथकंडे

झल्ले दी झल्लियाँ गल्लां

अकाली चीयर लीडर

औए झल्लेया ये कैप्टेन सरकार क्या तुगलकी काम करवाने पर तुली हुई है
देख तो हसाड़े हसदे वसदे लुधियाना के नहरों को पाट कर+सरकारी स्कूल का रास्ता कब्ज़ा कर शॉपिंग माल बनवाया जा रहा है और अपने लोगों के वारे न्यारे करवाए जा रहे हैं|औए भ्र्ष्टाचार से लिप्त सरकार का भ्र्ष्टाचार से मुक्त का नारा लुधियाना के नगर निगम में तो महज जुमला ही साबित हो रहा है|


भा जी ! वाकई बुजुर्गों का कहना है के कभी यहाँ से जीवन दायनी मॉडल टाउन ८२ फु टी माईनर नहर निकला करती थी लेकिन नहरों को कब्ज़ा मुक्त करवाने के बजाय ये नई सरकार शायद लुधियाना को स्मार्ट सिटी बनाने के लिए ऐसे ही हथकंडे अपनाएगी |
