Gujarat Chief Minister Launch and Lay Stones of Development Works worth Rs.900-crore

“Nearly 72,000 people appoint in various government departments in one year, create10-lakh jobs in private sector”

“GSRTC holds pride place of introducing fuel-efficient Euro-4 buses” – Shri Vijay Rupani

Ahmedabad, October 16, 2017 Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani inaugurated flyover, water distribution centre, community health centre, urban health centre and performed the ground breaking ceremony of four over bridges combined worth of Rs.900-crore here today.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that Gujarat is marching ahead with development as the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi set the precedence of transparency to eliminate corruption. He said that his government would leave no stone unturned to provide civic amenities like water, roads, gutter, bridges in Ahmedabad and other municipal corporations, as also selected as smart cities. The state has the nation’s 1.25-lakh km long water supply network as a role model for other states. He said that money is no criteria for development.

He said the government has appointed 72,000 people in one year in ST, Police and other government departments as per manpower planning calendar through transparent means, and created job opportunities for 10-lakh people in the private sector. This is in sharp contrast to the previous Congress governments’ banning fresh appointments and abolishing 20 per cent posts.

Refuting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s charges, Mr. Rupani said that ‘sauna saath, sauna vikas’, digital India and employments galore are the answers to his criticisms. The people’s expectations also rise when the government does a good job. While only 15 per cent of the funds allotted reached the target groups in the Congress regime with middlemen usurping the balance, he said, the present government spent one rupee to create development works of Rs.1.25.

Mr. Rupani also flagged off 40 buses out of 575 new buses being inducted in the Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) for the convenience of passengers, and handed over appointment letters to conductors. Gujarat holds the pride of introducing fuel-efficient and low-pollution Euro-4 buses.

Transport Minister Vallabhbhai Kakadiya said that Prime Minister’s dream of making Digital India is being implemented through mobile apps in GSRTC, besides constructing six new bus ports, nine iconic bus depots and buying new 1,600 buses every year for ST, 3,200 buses would be inducted during the next four months alone.

Ahmedabad Mayor Gautam Shah and AUDA Chairman Bhiupendrabhai Patel gave details of the development works of the city.

Thos present on the occasion included Woman & Child Welfare Minister Nirmalaben Wadhwani, Parliamentary Secretary Babubhai Patel, Municipal Commissioner Mukesh Kumar, AUDA CEO A.B. Gor, GSRTC Vipul Mitra and MD Sonal Mishra, other officers.
