Residents of Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar (BRS) and adjoining areas today sat on a day long dharna at the BRS Nagar J block railway crossing. They were demanding opening of this way.
A temporary railway crossing gate has been made at the site but the road is not being opened. It needs to be mentioned that the lodhi club railway crossing road has been closed because of the ongoing railway under bridge(RUB) project,so the residents have to travel a long route from sunet railway crossing.
Today the residents were sitting along with Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) Trustee Gurinderpal Singh Pappu. Pappu said,The temporary railway crossing is ready for the past one month,but still the way is not being opened. We are facing lots of problems.
Following the protest,ADC(D) Pardeep Aggarwal came to pacify the residents and he assured the residents that the way will be opened within 4 days but they were still siting on dharna till the time of filing this report.
