If elected, one of my immediate priorities would be the establishment of Chandigarh Metro Rail, connecting Chandigarh from corner to corner. The project would also cover Panchkula, Mohali and other surrounding areas of Punjab, Haryana & Himachal.
Its benefits would be many.
Metro would reduce the road traffic drastically, by giving an economical and sensible alternative to all of us. It would also provide an option for direct travel between Panchkula and Mohali without having to cross through Chandigarh.
Chandigarh Metro would also change the perspective of MNCs towards Chandigarh and they shall open their view to a better and far more attractive Chandigarh.
Chandigarh, being a planned city, is most suited for this project as its construction can be done without disturbing its basic structure. It would also take much lesser time to construct as compared to other cities.
As seen across Delhi & Kolkata, this phenomenal concept of technology has not only made commutation easy but has also drastically improved the quality of life for the common man.
This is exactly what we propose to do for the common man in Chandigarh.
I await your suggestions.
