Ludhiana, December 3
Members of the expert group, relevant SDMs and Municipal Corporation (MC) officials organized a meeting to travel directly from Chaura Bazar to Shaheed Sukhdev Thapar’s birthplace in Mohalla Naughar in Ludhiana.
The Ministry of Local Government of Punjab had previously formed a group of experts to acquire about 44 square meters of land to go directly from Chaura Bazar to the ancestral home of Shaheed Sukhdev Thapar.
Professor Rajesh Gill, chairman of the expert group, led a discussion with officials and spoke with the owner of the land to be acquired. Members of Shaheed Sukhdev Thapar Memorial Trust, SDM Vineet Kumar and MC Aaditya Dachalwal Additional Commissioner were also present at the meeting. Despite repeated attempts, SDM Vineet Kumar could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, trusted president Ashok Thapar called on the authorities to complete the process as soon as possible so that a direct path can be built to the martyr’s ancestral home from Chaura Bazar. Thapar said they have long called for direct access to the martyr’s ancestral home, but it has yet to be built.
It is relevant to mention here that the Municipal Corporation will carry out embellishment work in the area outside the ancestral house of the martyr.
