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.
