Punjab CM Capt Amarinder launches urban projects worth Rs 1,087 crore

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday virtually laid the foundation stones and inaugurated a slew of projects worth Rs 1,087 crore for the holistic development of the urban areas under the Smart City and AMRUT schemes.

He urged the Union Government to include the holy city of Anandpur Sahib under the Smart City scheme, as a tribute to Guru Tegh Bahadur on his 400th  birth anniversary.

Thanking the people of the state for their overwhelming support to the Congress in the recently concluded civic elections, Amarinder Singh said the mandate is a vindication of the pro-people policies of his government.

The Chief Minister said under the first phase of Urban Infrastructure Improvement Programme, 2,065 projects have been started, with majority being completed, at a cost of Rs 300 crore.

He said another 4,227 projects have been approved under the second phase and work on 1,300 of them has already started.
