Manmohan instructs for hassle-free movement
New Delhi, Mar 29: To ensure a hassle-free movement for the public, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday asked authorities in Chandigarh not to create inconvenience for the common people during his visit to Mohali tomorrow to witness the India-Pakistan cricket match.
“The Prime Minister has given clear instructions that on account of his movement in Mohali tomorrow, no member of the public should be put to inconvenience,” PMO sources said.
Singh will watch the world cup semi-final match along with his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani in Mohali on Wednesday. The town is expected to witness heavy traffic on account of movement of VVIPs reaching there to watch the high-voltage encounter.
The Prime Minister’s instructions come in the backdrop of earlier instances when people complained about hardships faced by them during his visits.
A 32-year-old man had died at the gate of a hospital in Chandigarh last November as security for the Prime Minister’s visit allegedly hindered his access to timely medical treatment.
PROMINENT POLITICIANS TO ACCOMPANY GILANI
GKNN Adds from Islamabad: An all-party delegation comprising cabinet ministers, elected representatives and senators will be accompanying Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on his visit to India to watch the Indo-Pak semi-final at Mohali on Wednesday.
Besides cabinet ministers, Choudhary Mukhtar, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, former Prime Minister and chief of Pakistan Muslim League (Q), Choudhary Shujaat Hussain, Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan, MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar, former information minister and MNA Sherry Rehman, Munir Orakzai, Abdul Qadir Baloch and several others will be part of the Gilani’s entourage.
According to reports, PML-N, the second largest political entity in the parliament is yet to designate its representative for the delegation accompanying the premier.
Gilani is visiting India on the invitation of his Indian counterpart Dr Manmohan Singh to watch the world cup semi-final being played at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium Mohali on the outskirts of Chandigarh.
