Punjab CM Lays Foundation Stone Of Degree College For Girls At Boota Mandi
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh laid the foundation stone of Degree College for Girls at the local Boota Mandi and announced that his Government would accomplish the target of establishing 50 Colleges in the next three years.
The Chief Minister said that they had initiated the process for setting up 17 Colleges in just two years of his Government while the previous Government had made only 30 Colleges in its decade long regime. He said that the SAD-BJP Government has made an announcement in 2008 to establish a college here but there was no development in this regard and it was just a namesake announcement - not meant to be fulfilled.
Talking about the Degree College to be constructed at the Boota Mandi here, the Chief Minister said that it was a decade old demand of the area, which has first raised the issue in 1992. He said that this College would also be completed in one and half years at a cost of Rs 13 crores as the 3-acre land needed for it had been transferred by Mandi Board to Higher Education.
