Chandigarh: Senior Congress leader Amarinder Singh today demanded the Punjab government to issue necessary guidelines for regularising the unregulated colonies across the state.
He said people were suffering and this has also had an adverse impact on the business sentiment.
Smaller property transactions have come to a halt resulting in the loss to the small time traders, besides harassment to those who wanted to buy or sell the plots or houses for their personal use, he said.
Blaming the SAD-BJP government for such situation, the Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha and Amritsar MP, said in a statement that, "Such situations emerge when the ruling partners do not trust each other."
"The level of mistrust has led to such a stage that the Akali leadership is wary of taking any decision which might end up benefiting the BJP," he said.
Pointing out the "undue delay" in notifying the issue of the No Objection Certificates for regularising the unregulated colonies, the former Chief Minister said "in this process the common man was suffering".
"Better you clear the air on the NOC matter at the earliest and issue the necessary guidelines at the earliest lest people will have to come out on streets and fight for their rights," he warned.
