The SAS Nagar Municipal Corporation can sometimes get its work done at a lightning speed.
This was evident on August 13 when the road between the Civil Hospital and the Government College in Phase 6 was repaired in a matter of hours.
The road,which had been lying in utter neglect for years,was repaired and carpeted ahead of Sukhbir Badal’s visit to the college on August 15.
Interestingly,only the side of the road adjoining the college was repaired while the other side is yet to be fully repaired,and the road inside the hospital premises is still full of potholes.
This broken road had not been repaired for several years. We complained a few times but nobody paid any attention. Due to the potholed road leading to the hospital,patients brought in ambulances always suffered. It seems that such work is only undertaken for VIPs like Sukhbir Badal who will come for a day and not for the commoners who have to regularly use the road, said a pharmacist working in the hospital.
The Superintending Engineer of the MC could not be reached for his comment.
