We put rockets in the development works of Ambala Cantonment: Home Minister Anil Vij
Home Minister Anil Vij said that after stopping the wheel of development in Ambala Cantonment for many years, now we have put rockets on it. Now rapid development is happening all around.
Haryana was formed in the year 1966 and at that time only Ambala Cantonment was the planned town in Haryana and all the rest were villages or towns, but in no time they became metropolis.
But our Ambala cantonment remained the same. He said that, once read poetry in the Vidhansabha during the time of the previous governments that “This year, this strange thing happened in the month of monsoon, it rained in the whole city except my house”.
There was nothing in the name of development in Ambala and not even a single brick was used here. However, now all these development works were done in the public interest.
He said that there used to be daily quarrels for water in Government College, Bus Stand, Ambala, but we did the work of bringing canal water by laying pipes from a distance of 18 kilometers and now another pipeline is being laid which will supply canal water.
He said that a Shaheed Samarak is being constructed at a cost of Rs 400 crore and along with it, the Science Museum, Ambala Cantonment has been given the status of sub-division and a mini-secretariat has been built here.
Where various government offices were built so that people do not have to go to the city for small works. Similarly, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Park was built. Earlier people used to visit Chandigarh from Ambala, now people from Chandigarh are coming to Ambala Cantonment to see this park.
Soon a bank square cum shopping complex, multi level car parking, and fire station will be constructed.To illuminate the entire city, 11 thousand street lights have been installed so far. National level National Center and Disease Control are being built in Naggal, whose work will start in the coming months.
Earlier this center was only in Delhi, now this center is being established in Ambala Cantonment in North India. A football stadium is being constructed in the cantonment, while an all-weather swimming pool and gymnastics hall, yoga center have been constructed.
Apart from this, a domestic airport is being built for which land has been earmarked and aircraft will soon take off from here.
