All other political parties, except the Aam Aadmi Party, participated in the protest by shutting down Nangal on questions raised about the current and previous government. During the protest, where many people have indirectly targeted the current Punjab government for the stopped work of the flyover, while many people have also said in the dharna that the previous era government viz. the Congress party government also paid attention. known, because due to lack of seriousness in the past, the flyover work has not been completed until now. The previous government was said to be responsible for not getting all the necessary approvals for the works on time. Perhaps this is the reason why the step work has not been completed so far. It was said that the present government cannot be held responsible as there is not one but many issues that arose during the time of the previous government, due to which the work of passage in the interior has not yet been completed from the city. The construction of Shri Ram leprosy ashram has not been completed even after two years, while the work of removal of this ashram and construction of a new ashram should be completed as soon as the construction of the pass began. Today, when the overburden work has been completed up to 80 percent, however, the work of the under-construction building of Shri Ram Leprosy Ashram, which was demolished on September 19, 2020, has not been completed . Approvals should have been taken four years ago: Dr. Gautam Aam Aadmi Party District Rupnagar Dr. Wig President Dr. Sanjeev Gautam has said that the present government is not responsible for the delay in the under-construction four-lane flyover in Nangal. He said the mandatory building permits should have been taken four years before construction began. But no seriousness has been shown in this direction. This is the reason why the works are not finished today. Northern Railway has not yet given the mandatory written approvals to the manufacturing company. This is the reason why the work has stopped. He said that when the government was formed, an alternative route was constructed near Barari village on the Sutlej river. Now it has started to rain. So this road is closed. There is no other option. In this situation, the company that is building the crossing should step up its efforts by showing seriousness in obtaining the approvals.
