Mohali geared up for investors’ summit

Several parts of Mohali have got a facelift ahead of the Progressive Punjab Investors' Summit to be held on December 9 and 10. Apart from stringent security arrangements being put in place, the roads and streetlights have been renovated and decorated in the last two weeks.

Two roads - from Sector 48 to Knowledge City and from YPS Chowk to Singh Shaheedan Gurudwara in Sector 78 - leading to the Indian School of Business (ISB), the venue for the event, have been decorated with flags and directional boards being put up. The road from the Sector 78 Gurudwara to ISB and beyond has also been recarpeted with new street lights being installed.

"Three GMADA divisions - civil, electrical and horticulture - have been working for the last week to change the look of the town," said a junior engineer at GMADA.

A police team of over 1,000 personnel, headed by Inspector General of Police (Patiala Zone) Paramjit Singh Gill, will provide the security cover for the upcoming summit.

According to Senior Superintendent of Police, Inder Mohan Singh Bhatti, the security force will consist of 10 SPs, 30 DSPs, 35 Inspectors, around 150 Sub-Inspectors and Assistant Sub-Inspectors and 1,000 other personnel including traffic constables, quick reactions teams and mounted police personnel.

"We have conducted a mock drill and rehearsals. All adequate security arrangements are in place for the event," said Bhatti.

The two-day conclave will bring together investors, industrialists, policy-makers, professionals and politicians on a single platform.
