Punjab local government minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday claimed that Union minister of housing and urban poverty alleviation M Venkaiah Naidu had written to chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh pointing out glaring financial irregularities in release of central and state share of funds to the urban local bodies (ULBs).
Taking pot shots at the previous SAD-BJP government, Sidhu said that as per the communication the state’s share was not released and there was also delay in releasing the central government’s share. However, SAD has vehemently rejected his claims.
The letter was shared by Sidhu with the media claiming it (the letter) “vindicated” his stand that former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his son Sukhbir Singh Badal were responsible for “diversion” of funds for the three key missions during previous SAD-BJP regime.

Referring to a review meeting held by secretary, urban development on April 7, 2017 in Chandigarh, the union minister in the letter said, “In the smart cities mission even though SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) was formed long back in Ludhiana and project management consultants appointed, no project has been tendered so far.”
