Fazilka, November 6

Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu today said the announcement of dates for civic body elections in Punjab will be made in the next three days. "The Punjab Government has made all arrangements in this regard and a notification will be issued soon," he said.

Notably, elections for nine municipal corporations and 117 municipal councils are due as the five-year terms of the civic bodies were completed this year.

Sidhu was here to preside over the monthly meeting of the District Grievances Redressal Committee, Fazilka. Reacting to the demand of SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal to declare Punjab a mandi, Sidhu alleged Badal and AAP were hand in glove with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He alleged the Centre was hell bent on not resolving farmers' issues.

During the meeting, the members raised the issue of illegal sand mining in Fazilka as a result of which sand was being sold at an exorbitant price. — OC
