Yogi plans to make UP roads pothole free by Jun 15 runs into hurdles
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's ambitious plan of making the state's roads pot- hole free by June 15 has run into hurdles and it may take upto two more months before travellers can experience a smooth ride, a state minister said on Sunday. "Owing to e-tendering, there is difficulty in making the roads of the state pothole-free by June 15, and it may take additional 45-60 days to ensure that the roads are pothole free. Due to the new mining policy also there is difficulty in getting the raw material," Rajendra Pratap Singh, minister for rural engineering service, told reporters here.
Referring to the thrust on policy measures including e- tendering, Singh said the BJP led government will not work as per the old pattern and will function in a transparent manner. The minister claimed that the Adityanath government was taking strict action on the corruption front. The minister targeted the SP and BSP on a question related to law and order.
