DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

PWD min­is­ter Ch­ha­gan Bhu­jbal ad­mit­ted that there was a scarcity of funds to carry out road re­pairs in the state. He said the fi­nance depart­ment has given only 30% of the funds de­manded. “We need Rs1,943 crore to re­pair state roads, while district roads need Rs1,366 crore. But, we have a bud­getary al­lo­ca­tion of Rs429 crore for state roads and Rs291 crore for district roads — nearly 21% of the re­quire­ment,” he said in the assem­bly.
