Chandigarh: The Chandigarh Congress on Saturday stated it can begin a web-based social media marketing campaign below which the social gathering leaders will commonly increase varied points, together with the current steep hike in water tariffs, within the metropolis. Chandigarh Territorial Congress Committee president Pradeep Chhabra stated the social gathering can even gherao the municipal company workplace on October 20 to protest the three-fold enhance in water tariffs. The hike is between 50 per cent and 200 per cent, relying upon the class of consumer and consumption degree, and has burdened town residents who’re already affected as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, he stated.

During the marketing campaign, ‘Speak up Chandigarh’, the Congress can even spotlight exorbitant parking charges, the problem of dumping floor and potholes, Chhabra stated. In a digital assembly organised by the social gathering, it was determined to carry conferences, protests and dharnas to boost essential problems with town.

“We have decided to start an online social media campaign under which the party leaders will regularly raise issues plaguing Chandigarh like three-fold increase in water tariffs and a huge number of various taxes being imposed on city residents, Chhabra said. He appealed to the residents to raise their voice against the “inept administration” below the BJP rule by way of their Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp profile and teams “so that the unjust, insensitive BJP leadership starts listening to the voice of the voters. Chhabra also informed that the party will soon hold meetings on other issues like BJP government’s anti-farmer laws, atrocities and crimes against women and Dalits and various issues facing colonies and villages”. The BJP dominated Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has burdened the residents with an enormous enhance in varied taxes and now the water tariffs have been elevated just lately by 3 times which might be a further burden on the residents. These unjust and ill-timed selections are inflicting large resentment among the many metropolis residents, he stated.
