CM inaugurates development works in Patel Nagar JJ colonies
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated the development works in JJ colonies in Patel Nagar on Wednesday. Lanes and drains have been constructed under the project in two phases and more of the lanes and drains are to be constructed in the next two phases in these colonies. The total expense in the four-phased projects is Rs 2.47 crore. The inauguration was also attended by the Flood & Irrigation Minister Satyendar Jain and local MLA Hazari Lal Chauhan.
"Delhi Government has been striving for a better life for the residents in JJ Colonies and unauthorised colonies of Delhi since it came to power. Work of roads-lanes, drains, sewer lines, water pipelines and street lights have been carried out in huge number of JJ and unauthorised colonies in the last four years by the Delhi Government," said an official.
The total number of residents to benefit from the project once completed is 25,000. In the last two weeks, the AAP-government initiated work in nearly 69 unauthorised colonies and also opened the Mayur Vihar phase-1 flyover for the citizens.
In July last year, the government sanctioned the budget work for the pending development works in these colonies. The boost in this work also created a political row as the Lok Sabha election is around the corner.
