 JALANDHAR: Claiming that the Congress Government is committed to reviving ailing Sugar Mills in the state, Congress Candidate Chaudhary Santokh Singh today said that from June onwards the oldest Sugar Mill of Bhogpur would be completely modernized with the installation of new sugar plant with an investment of Rs 115 crore.


“The blueprint for the modernization of the oldest sugar mill has already been rolled out the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and by June this year, a new sugar plant with the capacity of 3000 TCD would be installed by spending Rs 115 crore”, Chaudhary Santokh Singh said while addressing a massive gathering at Dana Mandi at Bhogpur.



Congress would ensure that farmers should get the right value for their produce and a new modernized sugar mill project at the cooperative sugar mill, Bhogpur would commence by June 2019 having 3000 TCD and 15 Megawatt (MW) as the unique features, he added.


Chaudhary said that out of the 15 MW power generation, about 8.5 MW would be sold to the Punjab State Power Corporation, he said adding that not only the sugarcane growers would be benefitted from the Mill, but it would generate more employment opportunities for the youth of this area.



Accompanying with former MLA Kamaljit Singh Lally and District Congress President (Rural) Sukhvinder Singh Lally, Chaudhary addressed the series of huge political gathering at Alawalpur and Adampur area.


Prominent among others, who were present in the political meetings include Raj Kumar Raja (Former President, Nagar Council, Bhogpur), Parminder Singh Malhi, Bhupender Saini, Randeep Singh Rana, Malkit Singh Lally, Vidhwant Kaur, Santokh Kaur, Meera Sharma, Amar Jyoti Sharma, Prithpal Kaur, Hardeep Sudana, Gian Chand, Gurpreet Singh, Jatinder Kumar, Mukhadar Lal, Deepak Gupta, Varinder Dutta, Ramesh Gupta and Paramjit Bagana.


Chaudhary also promised that very soon people of Alawalpur would witness the inauguration of Rail over Bridge (ROB) at Alawalpur-Kishangarh Road, for which groundwork has already been done.


“Adampur Airport has become operational due to our efforts and now if voted to power, Congress will not only start more flights from here but also, make it an  international airport in the years to come”, Chaudhary said while addressing the massive gathering at Adampur and assured that very soon the name of the Adampur Airport would be changed as “Guru Ravi Dass Ji Airport”.  


Hailing Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s promise to give Rs 72,000 per annum to poor families of the country, if Congress is voted to power, Chaudhary claimed that Congress would bring “Achche Din” for poor in a real sense, unlike Modi, who brought “Achche Din” only for Modis, Ambanis, Adanis and Chowkses.


“While Modi brought Achche Din only for crorepatis, Rahul Gandhi has rolled out his vision in the form of the blueprint of the Minimum Income Guarantee Scheme for 25 crore poor of the country”, Sitting Member of Parliament (MP) Chaudhary said.


Modi, who promised of giving Rs 15 lakh to each by bringing back the black money lodged in the foreign bank, later on, termed it as “Chunavi Jumla”, but Rahul Gandhi not only promised Rs 72,000 per annum to 20 per cent of India’s poorest families if Congress comes to power in 2019, but also rolled out the blueprint to make it possible, Chaudhary added.


Chaudhary assured the gathering that if voted to power, Congress would present a separate "Kisan Budget” to ensure priority to issues affecting the agriculture sector.


The party promised to put farmers on the path to “Karz Mukti” (freedom from loans) from “Karz Maafi” (loan waiver), Chaudhary said adding that this would be done through remunerative prices, lower input costs, and assured access to institutional credit.
