School education minister Rajendra Darda today assured Hanumannagar and Pundaliknagar residents of resolving their civic problems at the earliest.
The assurance came during the inauguration of civic works carried out in these wards with the discretionary fund of Darda. Concrete roads were constructed in the two lanes in ward no. 83 and a drainage line was laid in Hanumannagar, lane no. 3.
When the residents complained about poor roads, water supply and electricity, the minister assured them of solving them soon. "Jalna and Manmad are supplied with drinking water once in a fortnight owing to the severe drought. But we are fortunate that the city is getting water once in three days," the minister said, adding that chief minister Prithviraj Chavan immediately ordered release of water into Jayakwadi dam from upstream reservoirs after he had requested him.
In a meeting held last week, directives were also given to civic officials that tankers supplying water to Gunthewari areas should not be diverted to other places, the minister said.
The minister hoped that the ambitious Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project, which was brought here during his tenure as industry minister, would create lakhs of job opportunities for local youths. Dr Zafar Khan, Pankaj Phulpagar, Damuanna Shinde, Baban Didore and others were present on the occasion.
