Today, on the final day of the budget session in the Assembly, MLA Sheetal Angural of the Jalandhar West constituency questioned the scam being committed in the name of the "Smart City." Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, Sheetal Angural said that he had come at the time of elections with a promise to expose the big scam in the name of Smart City.

He said that around Rs.550 crore had been spent in the name of the smart city in Jalandhar. During the time of the old governments, the work done there is not visible anywhere. He also raised a lot of voices against it, petitioned the government, went to Delhi, and even approached the SC Commission. But so far no action has been taken against it.
