Sanjay Verma said that roads, streets, drains etc. are required to be constructed in different wards of the municipal council. Due to the increase in the area of the Municipal Council, applications are being received for street lighting and sanitation in the newly incorporated area, but due to the lack of funds, the Municipal Council is facing difficulties in providing basic facilities to the residents of the town.
Sanjay Verma said that the municipal council Rupnagar’s bills of street light and disposal treatment plant of about Rs 7 crores are pending.

The arrest bills of the 6th pay commission of the Municipal Council employees are pending and it is necessary to provide water facility in the newly added areas as such chief minister has been requested to provide funds to the municipal council.
