The Speaker asked the officers to work with dedication and adopt a proactive approach to redress the grievances of the people and ensure comprehensive development of the constituency.

Taking a dig at the previous NC-Congress government, the Speaker said the people who enjoyed power for years together have done nothing concrete on ground. “I inherited a constituency where every department was in a state of dismay”, he added.
While inspecting the work for construction of Gangyal Nallah, the speaker directed the officers of ERA to maintain quality and ensure the timely completion of the same before the onset of monsoon season.
The Speaker informed the locals that Rs 2 Crore has been sanctioned for construction of deep drain at digiana and the same will start by the mid of this month followed by blacktopping of roads in the area which was delayed due to damaged drains.
