Panchkula, May 27-
Haryana Vidhan Sabha Speaker, Gian Chand Gupta today inspected the crematorium run by Shri Sanatan Dharma Vaikunth Dham Seva Samiti in Sector-20 and took stock of various facilities available. He also announced to give Rs 11 lakh from his discretionary fund to the Samiti for the arrangement of an additional cremation van.
Gupta accompanied by Mayor, Municipal Corporation Kulbhushan Goyal and Commissioner, Municipal Corporation Dharamveer Singh inspected the shed, gas cremation chamber and other facilities at the crematorium.
Gupta directed the concerned officers of Municipal Corporation to get the testing of the gas cremation chamber conducted at the earliest and also assess the requirement of gas to be used in the chamber so that an adequate quantity of gas could be made available in the crematorium as per the requirement. The gas cremation chamber installed at the crematorium about a year ago is lying unused due to lack of testing. Gas fire chamber is a better alternative to wood and easily available also, he added.
On this occasion, Sanatan Dharma Vaikunth Dham Seva Samiti also raised the issue of boundary wall of crematorium before Gupta. The representatives of the Samiti requested that the remaining boundary wall of the crematorium be completed at the earliest.

Pradeep Goel, President, Shri Sanatan Dharma Vaikunth Dham Seva Samiti informed that the Samiti has only a cremation van and there is a requirement of an additional van. On this, Gupta announced to give Rs 11 lakh for his discretionary fund to the Samiti for arrangement of an additional van.
Later, Gupta inspected the shed in the cremation ground and directed the officials to provide all necessary facilities at the crematorium.
