CM gives gift of development projects worth around Rs 100 crore to Jalandhar residents

In a major gift to residents of Jalandhar, the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann dedicated and kicked off development projects worth around Rs 100 crore to give facelift to the city.

The Chief Minister dedicated newly constructed automatic fermented milk product plant of Verka at a cost of Rs 84 crore to the city residents. Likewise, he also virtually inaugurated the Smart school at Basti Danishmanda at a cost of Rs 4.83 crore. Bhagwant Mann also laid foundation stone of roads and street lights to be installed at Leather complex in the city.

Meanwhile addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister said that Jalandhar will be developed as a model city in the coming days. He said that no stone will be left unturned for this noble cause. Bhagwant Mann also announced to give impetus to the sports industry in the city.

The Chief Minister said that in a major relief to the farmers of the state the state government has announced 25% upward revision in the compensation for the crop loss to the farmers. He said that in case the loss is more than 75% then the state government will compensate the farmers with Rs 15,000 per acre. Bhagwant Mann said that the motive is to ensure the well being of the farmers at all costs.

The Chief Minister said that the compensation was earlier only 12,000 but his government has decided to enhance it. He said that earlier the entire process was a sham as the government used to give meagre compensation to farmers. Bhagwant Mann said that instead of giving relief to farmers the previous governments used to rub salt into wounds of food growers.

The Chief Minster said that fully Automated Fermented Milk Product Plant with capacity of 1.25 lakh litre per day milk has been constructed at a cost of Rs.84 Crore. He said that it has fully automated Dahi Plant of 50 MT/ Day and Lassi processing and packaging infrastructure of 1.5 Lakh Litre/Day.
