Government sanctions crore of money for the project but the result is not seen. Our MLA’s pocket becomes heavier but roads but development Zero.

What about our present roads and footpaths? In the city there are concrete roads with no proper footpaths and first complete the left over work and then go for a new one?

We are happy for your proposal, but how long will it take for the completion? A next 10 to 20 years?
