Kaul Singh Thakur blames State Govt for delay in Mehatpur-Una-Amb highway

During the three days tour of Una district, HPCC president Kaul Singh Thakur criticised the BJP led Govt for failing to complete the Mehatpur-Una-Amb highway in stipulated time. While addressing the crowd Thakur alleged that the previous Congress government had got the project for widening and strengthening of this road sanctioned from the World Bank, but mismanagement has delayed it.

“I have come to know that the project has been delayed due to mismanagement by the present government. Various government departments have not cleared encroachments in time, felled trees and changed power and water lines for laying the road. Now, residents of Una district are suffering due to air pollution and bad condition of road in the entire 50-km stretch leading from Mehatpur to Amb. Residents of Una and Meharpur towns are suffering from consistent air pollution due to delayed road construction,”

Kaul Singh alleged that the delay in the construction had also led to the escalation of cost and thus causing a loss to the state exchequer. He alleged that most of the industry had flown into Una district during the stint of Congress into power. Kaul Singh claimed that he had got tremendous response during his three-day visit in Una district.

During his Una tour, Kaul Singh Thakur did not forget to discuss the condition of both parties, he proudly said that Congress was united, whereas the BJP was a divided house. He alleged that BJP Govt is neck deep in corruption and therefore its senior leaders Shanta Kumar and Kangra MP Rajan Sushant had distanced themselves from the working of the state government and many of its leaders has formed a new political outfit.
