Chandigarh March 27, 2009: Chandigarh state BJP President Mrs Kamala Sharma, General Secretary Sanjay Tandon, former BJP President Mr Dharma Pal Gupta, State Vice president Mr Purshottam Mahajan, and Party spokesman Mr Davesh Moudgil attacked Mr Pawan Kumar Bansal for his statement saying that BJP move to allow an extra floor will destroy the basic character of the city. Many buildings in the city have up to six floors..
BJP leaders said this statement has unmasked Mr Bansal and his true anti-city face has come out in open. Many building in city have four, five, six or even ten floors. If these do not blot the beauty of the city, an additional floor in Kanal or Marla houses, booths, bay-shops and other commercial buildings, too, will not impact beauty or safety of the city. The BJP leaders said that construction of one moor floor in all these is need of the hour.
BJP leaders reminded Mr Bansal that Mr Satya Pal Jain himself had clearly said in his statement that an experts committee will be set up to formulate the policy on provision of additional floor and this committee will make its recommendation in light of needs to ensure safety and security. Mr Jain has proposed provision of multi story and underground parking to take care of the requirements of additional population. Mr Jain has supported need based internal changes in Marla houses and regularisation of constructions on own land outside village lal-dora and has underlined the need for a comprehensive housing policy.
BJP leaders have said that by opposing these proposals and saying that these will spoil the beauty of the city Mr Bansal has given the message that he has no concern for the needs and comforts of the voters. So far he has been neglecting his duty on one excuse or other but now he has gone a step further and raise his voice against the interests of the voter. Voters of the city will give their mandate based on this approach.
The BJP leaders said it is a good thing that Mr Bansal has shown his true face by opposing this people friendly move promptly. Now Chandigarh voters will decide what they should do to an incompetent, excuse-monger and anti-people leader?
