A representation in this context shall also be submitted to Charanjit Singh Channi, Hon’ble CM, Punjab.
RS Sachdeva stated that industries and trade partners should be allowed to visit across the borders as there is huge demand of Indian products in Pakistan and vice a versa.
He said that the Government should allocate fund for the proposed Exhibition Centre at Amritsar and the Exhibition centre should be taken out of the PPP model. It is a long pending demand of the industry and the founding stone should be laid by the current government.
