Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday performed ‘Bhoomipujan’ (Ground breaking ceremony) of Nagpur Peri-Urban Drinking Water Supply Scheme. The scheme is being implemented by Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran (MJP) under National Rural Drinking Water Programme. The ‘Bhoomipujan’ ceremony, held at Basa Square in city, was attended by Union Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, State Energy Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule and other prominent personalities.
Speaking on the occasion, Fadnavis said that the scheme will facilitate supply of clean drinking water to at least 10 villages. “The contribution of Bawankule in starting this 135-crore scheme in villages must be deserves appreciation,” said the Chief Minister.
Fadnavis further said that a master plan has been put in place which will prove very handy for citizens in finalizing maps for their building plans. The citizens will no more have to wait for months together for sanctioning their maps, said Fadnavis. At the same time he appealed the citizens not to carry out any illegal constructions in their plots of land.
Gadkari in his speech heaped accolades on Chief Minister Fadnavis for not wasting time in initiating development works. “The previous government wasted too much time and kept the projects pending. But the Chief Minister Fadnavis took quick decisions in the interest of people. As soon as the Winter Session ended the next day he gave green signal to the scheme that will provide clean drinking water to 10 villages,” said Gadkari.
