Correspondent of Jagran, Ludhiana. The Aam Aadmi Party presented a balanced budget, which occupied the power of the Punjab for the first time. In this, the main agenda was education and health, on which the party focused. However, this budget caused some disappointment to employers.

In general, the Ludhiana district has no new projects directly from the first government budget, but the budget provision will definitely bring some improvement in the state of Ludhiana. This will also speed up the pace of existing projects. On top of that, in the budget, Finance Minister Harpal Cheema has talked about accelerating the pace of many of these schemes, which are already underway.

In this, it is important to acquire land for the 950 acre Mega Textile Park in Kumkalan, Ludhiana. However, people right now oppose this project, because there is still a forest in this place and the project should be started only after removing this forest.

Apart from that, as part of the Smart City project, it has been said that it makes Ludhiana smart, rejuvenates the Budha River at a cost of Rs 650 million and provides canal water to the city. Work is already underway on these projects and it will now be accelerated. Entrepreneurs in the industrial city of Ludhiana are in trouble after being caught in the clutches of the Raj Inspection.
