Tandon assures amending housing board bye-laws in accordance with need based changes

Chandigarh: CRAWFED today hosted both the principal candidates for the Chandigarh LS seat, in which the BJP candidate, Sanjay Tandon was able to impress the audience with his knowledgeable stand.  Tandon's  straight forward and down-to-earth approach to the questions posed to him was appreciated by the audience. The Congress nominee, Manish Tewari on the other hand tended to blame the BJP for every problem in the Chandigarh UT and sought to focus on what he said were national issues. Both the candidates were provided with the same set of questions. The candidates offered solutions to them. Sanjay Tandon said the Congress was fond of giving guarantees to solve every problem. But this assurance was meaningless because the INDIA Bloc was not sure of winning even 50 seats in the elections.  Therefore, Tewari’s guarantees were meaningless. Tandon announced that a one-time settlement solution would be offered on the Delhi BJP pattern to resolve issues like need-based changes, Leasehold to FreeHold, Transfer of Dwelling Units on the basis of GPA/Sub GPA for the CHB allottees. Times have changed, so have the requirements of the residents, he said. Therefore, the concerned bye-laws will have to be changed. Tandon also said that the SC would be approached to review its verdict banning sharewise transfer of property in Chandigarh. If need be, an ordinance will be promulgated to amend the law. He was also in favour of implementation of the Apartment Act in Chandigarh. The BJP nominee said that the Tricity of Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula has now turned into Quad City with the addition of Mullanpur. Therefore, any transport solution should cover all the four towns. He announced that he would request Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lay the foundation stone of the Metro project for the Quad City after the election. The CRAWFED also raised a demand to formulate a reservation policy for Chandigarh domicile holders in jobs and in admissions at various professional colleges, Panjab University and its affiliated colleges in the city. They also demanded that recreational facilities be  provided in every community centre and also that a library and some indoor activity for senior citizens be set up.  Acknowledging the demands, Tandon assured to take up the matter as soon as he came into power.
