The Chief Minister laid the foundation stone of infrastructure projects Rs 113 crores including Rs 54 crore road of nearly 12 km linking Pipla Mode (near NH-33) to Anna Chowk (Govindpur). The road will help heavy vehicles reaching industries in Telco and other parts like Golmuri, Burmamines and Agrico directly from NH-33 without causing traffic congestion on city road and reducing mishap threat. Other projects included rural roads, drinking water projects, stadiums, community halls, kitchen sheds in schools and sewerage projects in rural belts.
Cheques were also distributed to beneficiaries of various government schemes worth over Rs 3-crore while bridge and culverts in rural areas of East Singhbhum worth over Rs 18-crore were also inaugurated by the chief minister.
Thereafter, Chief Minister went to Jugsalai railway crossing by road and laid the foundation stone of the 545 meter long approach road of over Rs 12-crore as part of the Jugsalai railway over bridge projects which would be completed within 12 months.

About one lakh people from the densely-populated Jugsalai and Bagbera localities of the city cross the Jugsalai level crossing located between Tatanagar and Adityapur stations every day. As about 100 trains, including goods trains passes through the Jugsalai level crossing, traffic snarl is a regular affair.
