DE­MAND­ING PLOTS, SLUM DWELLERS STAGE PROTEST

HT Ludhiana Live - - In&around - LUD­HI­ANA:

De­mand­ing al­lot­ment of plots at Sa­heed Bha­gat Singh Na­gar, slum dwellers liv­ing in the lo­cal­ity protested out­side the deputy com­mis­sioner of­fice and submitted a mem­o­ran­dum to the DC on Tues­day.

Pres­i­dent of the slum Ashok Ku­mar said the im­prove­ment trust had pro­posed to re­serve 40 square yards plot for slum dwellers, but the au­thor­i­ties failed to al­lot the plots to poor peo­ple.

The po­lit­i­cal lead­ers prom­ise plots to slum dwellers at the time of elec­tions, how­ever never ful­filled their prom­ises, added Ashok Ku­mar.
