Punjab CM to Raise Key Concerns at NZC meeting

Tuesday, 26 September 2023 | PNS | Amritsar

 Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Monday expressed his commitment to address all issues pertinent to the State during the 31st meeting of the Northern Zonal Council (NZC), set to commence in Amritsar on Tuesday.


Among the topics on the agenda are issues related to the Bhakra-Beas Management Board, Panjab University's affiliation, road construction under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), canal projects, water-sharing agreements, matters concerning state reorganization, and infrastructure development.


Mann, who arrived in Amritsar on Monday, shared photographs featuring him alongside Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu and Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena on social media. Mann, in a statement, also conveyed the significance of the upcoming NZC meeting, to be chaired by the Union Home Minister Amit Shah, saying, “We have arrived at Guru di Nagari Sri Amritsar Sahib for a very important meeting of the North Zone Council....Tomorrow, a very important meeting is going to be held under the chairmanship of Home Minister Amit Shah."


Punjab Chief Minister assured that he would advocate for all issues pertaining to Punjab and its residents during this critical gathering. Official sources have indicated that specific matters will be addressed during the meeting, including the allocation of land in Chandigarh to Haryana for the construction of an additional state assembly building.


Additionally, the reluctance of Rajasthan to utilize its full share of water from the Rajasthan feeder during recent floods will also be brought to the Union Home Minister's attention.


The NZC serves as a vital forum for resolving such regional concerns and fostering cooperation among the northern states and Union Territories.
