Gupta said that prior to installation of BJP-PDP government in the state; the infrastructure of almost all the departments was in a very shabby condition and required immediate attention.
While interacting with the people at these places, he said that projects amounting to several crores have been sanctioned by the government for upgrading and creating new infrastructure in Gandhi Nagar and other parts of the state.
He said that initially the blacktopping of main roads along with the provision for providing better power and water supply remained his priority as huge amount was required for all these works.
