Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani today expressed his government’s commitment to increase civic amenities for ease of living in towns, to make the state’s smart cities match global cities.
Speaking at a function while e-dedicating the new town-hall at Viramgam built at a cost of Rs.2.88-crore under Swarnim Jayanti Mukhya Mantri Shaheri Vikas Yojna through videoconferencing from here, he said government is ready to provide funds for development works of municipalities.
He said the pace of planned urban development has increased ever since the Bharatiya Janata Party Governments have come to power in the state.
Mr. Rupani said that since people prefer to live in the towns of their liking till the last breathe the state government is committed to make such towns livable and enjoyable, to create an environment to convert problems into facilities.
He said that public places and buildings, lakes and roads, water supply and gutter identify the towns and villages. And town halls are centres humming with events which over the years become historic. He hoped authorities use the Vivekananda town-hall as a centre of development programmes and discussions on development. He wished development of the town’s historic Munsar talav also.
Nagarpalika President Rekhaben Pandya declared the new two-storied building equipped with all facilities as Swami Vivekananda Town-hall.
