Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday authorized the Punjab Infrastructure Development Board (PIDB) to work on a PPP model for the maintenance and running of the Amritsar BTRS corridor, which the Congress government has decided to salvage even though it was ill conceived by the erstwhile SAD-BJP regime. Chairing the 35th meeting of the Board of Directors of PIDB here, the Chief Minister also gave his approval for the establishment of Convention Centres in Ludhiana, Mohali and Amritsar, besides a Recreational Centre at Ludhiana, to be executed by GLADA, GMADA, ADA and GLADA respectively. Capt Amarinder also agreed to a proposal by the Chief Secretary to have an inbuilt hotel facility in the premises of these Convention Centres. Captain Amarinder directed the department to complete the bidding process within three months to execute the project in PPP mode.
