Residents of 24 villages surrounding Gujjarwal village near here in Ludhiana district see a ray of hope in the new the AAP government led by Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann as regional leaders have launched coordinated efforts to get status of the Civil Hospital for the existing dispensary having a single doctor here.
Philanthropists and NRIs from the village have been roped in for the upgrade and renovation of the dilapidated building housing the dispensary. Kuldeep Singh Grewal, an NRI from the village has come forward to fund works worth Rs10 lakh.

“What has upset us is that successive governments could not keep a Civil Hospital running, which once used to provide healthcare services to residents of over 20 villages in the area. We are glad that our halqa in-charge KNS Kang has come forward to keep his promise to get the building of the dispensary renovated and upgrade it
