Mohali MC sees great drama over land allocation to cattle ranchers
Great drama was observed at the meeting of the Municipal Corporation House after opposition advisers raised technical questions regarding the allocation of land to cattle ranchers in area 91-74.
When the meeting began around noon, opposition advisers led by Gurmeet Kaur objected to the MC’s decision to allot 3.54 acres of land near the landfill. The councilors demanded that the MC should allocate the land to ranchers on a permanent basis.
Opposition councilors objected that they wanted a response from the mayor, not councilors. Congressional advisers showed signs showing stray cattle in an attempt to highlight the threat of cattle roaming the city.
In the meantime, the resolution was passed unanimously to provide rentable land for owners of livestock and pet ranchers.
Municipal company commissioner Kamal Garg proposed an amendment to the resolution to lease the land instead of a lease which was accepted.
