Hoshiarpur: National Council member of Aam Aadmi Party, Advocate Naveen Jairath today alleged the Municipal Corporation of Hoshiarpur with the charges of misuse of funds. He gave the reference of Agenda No. 29 and 31 of meeting of MCs of Hoshiarpur. He said that in these agendas, the MC have passed a resolution that Rs. 25 Lakh will be sent for the repair of Punjab Municipal Bhawan Chandigarh as recommended by the Punjab Government.
Advocate Jairath said that the Municipal Corporation hiked the price of wood in the cremation ground from Rs. 450 to Rs. 1400 because the MC was suffering a loss of Rs. 10 Lakh annually.

Advocate Jairath said, “The tax payer of Hoshiarpur is paying taxes for the development of Hoshiarpur not Chandigarh.”
