The Chandigarh Administration is finding sites/open spaces for Dharnas/Rallies
Chandigarh, January 20:- The Chandigarh Administration had appointed a Committee consisting of the Deputy Commissioner, Senior Superintendent of Police, Chandigarh and Superintendent of Police/Traffic to inspect various sites/open spaces available in Chandigarh for organization of Dharnas/Rallies. Presently, the Dharnas/Rallies are being held at Matka Chowk. This chowk is located at a point through which a number of employees and general public go to their offices, High Court of Punjab and Haryana PGI & other hospitals and various educational institutions. The organization of Dharnas/Rallied at this chowk has been causing great inconvenience to the general public. This has been resulting into traffic blockade also in certain parts of the city. Realizing the problems being faced by the general public, the Committee constituted by the Administrat6ion inspected a number of sites and recommended Rajindra Park, Sector -1, Chandigarh for organization of Dharnas/Rallies. There is ample space available for parking also at this site and it is less likely to result into inconvenience to the general public as well as the persons participating in the Dharnas/Rallies. However, before shifting the venue finally to the Rajindra Park, the Administration desired to have opinion from various sections of the society. An official release said that any suggestion in this regard may be furnished to the Deputy Commissioner, Chandigarh within a period of two weeks.
