JALANDHAR: Taking cognizance of the demand by industry of the region, Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary on Saturday wrote to Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh requesting him for the construction of a common community complex to conduct trade exhibitions and business activities.

 

Various industrialists and associations, including Jalandhar Industrial Focal Point (Extn) Association, had approached the senior Congress leader expressing the need for a complex, where exhibitions and trade related activities could be organized.

 

MP Chaudhary stated in the letter that Jalandhar is an internationally known industrial hub providing employment to lakhs of people. But due to the lack of a dedicated space, the industry associations have “been forced to organize industrial exhibitions at Jalandhar Grain Market, where more than 200 industries participate with a footfall of 30,000, including students, every year.”

 

The Lok Sabha MP argued that a grain market is not a suitable place for organizing trade exhibitions, and the city needs a big complex with auditoriums, where business activities could be organized in a smooth manner.

 

He further said that such a space would also help in boosting business in Jalandhar & Doaba area of Punjab.
