272 LANES AND 544 DRAINS WILL BE CON­STRUCTED AT A COST OF ₹27 CRORE

NEW DELHI: Delhi chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal on Satur­day in­au­gu­rated de­vel­op­ment projects — in­clud­ing con­struc­tion of sewer lines, drains and streets — in 11 unau­tho­rised colonies i n Delhi’s Ki­rari assem­bly con­stituency.

A to­tal of 272 lanes and 544 drains will be con­structed in these 11 colonies at an es­ti­mated cost of ₹27 crore. The to­tal length of the drains will be about 58 km while lanes will be laid along 29 km.

“While the other par­ties in the past have only promised de­vel­op­ment, the AAP has con­structed sewer lines, wa­ter pipe­lines and drains in around 400 unau­tho­rised colonies,” Ke­jri- wal said while ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing.

“Man­ish Siso­dia had to sit on a hunger strike for 10 days at the lieu­tenant-gover­nor’s of­fice to get the files cleared for the pub­lic so that peo­ple could get bet­ter streets, drains and CCTV cam­eras,” he said.

“Do not make the same mis­take of elect­ing the BJP again. In­stead elect AAP lead­ers in all seven Lok Sabha seats,” he said

The in­au­gu­ra­tion was also at­tended by the state flood and ir­ri­ga­tion min­is­ter Satyen­dar Jain and lo­cal MLA Ri­tu­raj Govind. Ac­cord­ing to the gov­ern­ment, around 80,000 res­i­dents will ben­e­fit once the projects are com­pleted.
