Bharatiya Janata Party Chandigarh President Sh. Sanjay Tandon and former Cabinet Minister Sh. Harmohan Dhawan addressed a Press Conference at Chandigarh Press Club.
While addressing the mediapersons Sh. Harmohan Dhawan said that local Member Parliament Sh. Pawan Kumar Bansal is Chief Engineer of Defection. During the elections of Municipal Corporation held in 2006 Congress Party got only 12 seats and they also lost first Mayor election. But due to his mastery in Defection, Pawan Kumar Bansal managed majority in the house.
Mr. Jitender Bhatia who recently joined Congress Party was elected by the residents of the ward against Congress. During the said election, Bhatia got 2700 votes, BJP got 1700 and the Congress candidate got only 900 votes. So Bhatia became Councillor on the basis of votes polled in his favour against Congress Party. After joining Congress Party, he not only cheated the residents of the area but also lost the moral right to retain the Councillor’s seat. He should resign from his Councillorship and face the public in fresh elections.
Mr. Dhawan also said that some Heads of Educational Institutions who are getting government aid to run their institutions are becoming tool in the hands of Congress MP Pawan Kumar Bansal. He said that Jatinder Bhatia stated in some of the newspapers that he joined Congress only due to Mr. Chatrath and Mr. Vaid (Principal, S.D. College, Sector 32, Chandigarh). Mr. Vaid was also present at the time of joining of Jitender Bhatia. Not only this one of the senior government employee of Chandigarh Mr. Sushil Kumar Sofat was seen distributing sweets at the time of joining of Mr. Bhatia. This clearly indicates that Mr. Pawan Kumar Bansal is using Government machinery for his own political benefit. He said that Bharatiya Janata Party will bring this all into the notice of senior officials of Chandigarh Administration and Education Secretary and demand action against such employees.
Sh. Sanjay Tandon, President Bharatiya Janata Party Chandigarh said that Central Water Resources Minister Mr. Pawan Kumar Bansal who happen to be local Member Parliament has proved a total failure.
Mr. Bansal failed to provide sufficient water to the residents of city due to which the public is facing lot of problem. There are several complaints of improper supply of water. At several places it has been noticed that the residents contributed money to buy water tanks from private suppliers. Not only this the water supplied by the Municipal Corporation is not healthy. People are complaining of muddy water or insects, rats etc. in the taps of their houses.
