Chief Minister Mr. Vijay Rupani has taken a landmark decision today to boost the infrastructure in Gujarat. The Chief Minister has given approval for the construction of buildings of more than 70 floors, in the five mega cities of the state. The decision is visionary in the sense that it will highlight Gujarat on the global map in-line with the countries like UAE, Singapore etc. which are known for their world class infrastructure and skyscrapers.
