The rail bribery scam was the focus of a meeting of the state executive of the Chandigarh unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday.
The party passed a resolution that former Railways Minister and local MP Pawan Kumar Bansal should be chargesheeted and the court should take a decision on the truth.
The resolution was presented by senior BJP leader Satya Pal Jain and seconded by councillor Arun Sood. The resolution further states that Bansal should apologise to the residents of Chandigarh for betraying the faith of the people.
It was stated that the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has not been able to progress because of the poor administration of the Congress.
The Congress got nine councillors with allegiance to the party nominated in order to get the Mayor from their party elected. The resolution further states that the burden of House Tax was put on the people.
President of the city unit of the party Sanjay Tandon presented a report on the activities of the unit.
He said that the the Congress government at the centre, the Congress MP and the Congress ruled Chandigarh Municipal Corporation have failed in framing special plans and policies for the comprehensive development of Chandigarh. He added that lal dora of the villages has not been increased since the formation of Chandigarh in 1966 despite the population increasing several fold.
