District Magistrate Dr. Rajesh Kumar along with MLA Harbans Kapoor conducted on-site inspection of National Highway widening works at Premgamar on Tuesday. During this, the traders and the MLA demanded allotment of land for setting up kiosks for the traders whose business establishments were broken or demolished during the widening.

On the demand of the traders and on the instructions of the MLA, the District Magistrate has directed the Deputy Collector Sadar and Tehsildar Sadar to mark the place on DRDO land for commercial activities on the spot. The MLA apprised the DM that these people were settled here during the partition. During the widening of the road, either the entire shop of a shopkeeper or half of the shop was broken or demolished. He said that earlier the district administration had marked the place to settle these shopkeepers but it was opposite to the on-the-spot geographical location of the shopkeepers. After that, the location which was near to the market was marked again and these were agreed by the shopkeeper also, but it has not been allotted yet. During this, Vijender Thapliyal, President of Premnagar Business Board Rajiv Punj, Vicky Khanna, Fakir Chand, Bhushan Bhatia, Ravi Chachra, Ravi Bhatia, Naresh Sehgal, Atul Kishore, Deepak Bhatia, Pakanj Sehgal etc. were present.
