November 2 in Amritsar
Sand continues to be in short supply, which has an impact on city construction. Workers who struggle to find work every day are the worst affected. The sand shortage has forced many people to halt their construction projects.
Sand is currently being sold for between Rs 50 and Rs 55 a cubic foot, but the government is keeping quiet about the skyrocketing price. Between Rs 20 and Rs 30 per cubic foot, its price has been fluctuating both before and after the founding of the government.
Many construction workers, according to Binder Singh, a worker from the Dhapai hamlet, were unable to find work even hours after waiting at the Sultanwind Chowk. He said that it was the cause of the slowdown.

Construction material trader Harpinder Singh noted that “it has been noticed that the prices of sand drop down every time before the elections.” Even governments attempt to regulate their costs, as demonstrated by the Channi-led Congress government’s ceiling on sand prices in November of last year at Rs 5 per cubic foot. All pledges are consistently placed on hold after the state’s new government is established. There is just a fine sand quarry in the area, and neither gravel nor coarse sand are mined there.
