Make Sri Harmandir Sahib Area, No-Vehicle-Zone
Hi, This is get Sangat's support in making Sri Harmandir Sahib area No-Vehicle-Zone, so that Irregular traffic, Air pollution, Noise Pollution and Problems faced by on-foot Sangat (both indian and foreigners) can be reduced and originality of the surroundings can be retained. So that area arround Sri Harmandir Sahib can be made breathable and where one can do Naam-Simran without any nuisance. Increasing pollution in surroundings of Sri Harmandir Sahib needs to be checked at Highest priority. Most of this pollution is caused by uncontrolled commuting of Taxis, Hotel Vans and other vehicles. Most affected are the Sangat, Sri Darbar Sahib building and Gold coating. Sangat, most of whom come from outside and on foot, face a daunting task of walking in heavy traffic of Cars, Scooters, Rickshaws and even heavy Trucks and Buses. Its to be noted that a Huge 3 Storied Parking and a 2 Storied Parking, specially for Vehicles coming to Sri Harmandir Sahib are operational at Chownk Fuwara. Administration took serious note of this problem and declared Area upto Chownk Fuwara as VEHICLE-FREE ZONE last year. But right next day on the pretext of Helping Traders around Sri Harmandir Sahib, Local Leaders protested against this move and dismounted the barricades. Amritsar City is there, because of Sri Harmandir Sahib. Hotels are operating because of Sri Harmandir Sahib, Traders are Trading because of Sri harmandir Sahib, Taxis are operating because of Sri Harmandir Sahib.
