Develop Amritsar as World Class City : Amritsar Vikas Manch
Amritsar March (Dr. Charanjit Singh Gumtala) Amritsar Vikas Manch congratulated Mr. Parkash Singh Badal on becoming the Chief Minister of the state for the fourth time. In a letter to Mr. Badal, the Manch president S. Harbhajan Singh Gill and General Secretary Mr. Amritlal Manan have said that the congress lost in Majha because it ignored Majha and specially Amritsar in the process of development of the state. The congress failed to set up the Special Economic Zone in Amritsar despite the fact that it was announced by the Prime Minister. It also took all the five central government institutions to Mohali and Patiala. Three institutes namely The National Institute of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Indian Institute of Science were selected for Mohali and National Institute of Law and defense for Patiala. Even the National Institute of Biotechnology, which was announced for Amritsar by the Prime Minister at the time of 400 year celebrations of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and which clearly mentioned in the Punjab government advertisements on 27 February, 2005 in all major newspapers, was deliberately shifted to Mohali. A world class healthcare township (Medical City) announced by Mr.Singla, the then Finance Minister of Punjab, never materialized. The congress government took no initiative to improve the basic infrastructure like roads and streetlight etc. in Amritsar city. Rather it gave more attention to Mohali to make it a world class city by establishing Greater Mohali area Development Authority. But it never thought making Amritsar as a World Class city despite the facts that it receives nearly one crore domestic as well as international tourists annually. It made no effort to improve its tourist potential and make Amritsar as a touristís friendly city.
The Manch leaders have said that it is always Majha which tilts the balance and helps a political Party to rule the state as was evident in the last elections when there was no Akali MLA and the government was of congress party.
The manch leaders have appealed Mr. Badal to keep Amritsar on the top of its priority list keeping in view its religious, historical and international tourist importance. They urged Mr. Badal to set up Knowledge city in Amritsar instead of Mohali, consisting of National Institute of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology Biotechnology Park and Indian Institute of Management etc. He is urged to set up a world class Medical City at Amritsar besides setting up Greater Amritsar Area Development Authority. The Manch leaders also demanded the setting up of Amritsar Tourism and Industrial Development Authority to improve the tourism potential of the city and to create international level facilities for the tourists who arrive here from all over the world.
