Jamshedpur: The MP of Jamshedpur Vidyut Varan Mahato met Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Tuesday and discussed various issues related to roads, railway over bridge construction and closed mines of East Singhbhum.
Among the various issues, the MP raised the issues of four road construction projects announced by the CM last year during a programme in Sonari. The MP said the detailed project report (DPR) of the four roads was ready, but the administrative approval was yet to be given.
The roads include the roads from Tata to Madhopur via Bota chowk in Patamada and Bodam, from Kharangajhar Chowk in Telco to Chandni Chowk on the National Highway 33 via Ghorabandha and Luabasa, from Dhanchatani to Govindpur, from Barabanki to West Bengal border via Beko and Kudlung and from Dumaria Dak Bungalow Chowk to Lailam Valley in Bahalda near Odisha border via Kumrasol, Bakulchanda and Kowali.
After listening to the MP, the CM reportedly assured him of prompt administrative action and said that he was sending the proposal for technical approval after which the final nod to the said projects will be given. The CM also said that a budgetary provision would be made in the next budget to spend Rs 200 crore for road construction projects in Jamshedpur Lok Sabha constituency.
Regarding the pending Jugsalai railway over-bridge project near railway level crossing, the MP sought the CMís intervention and said that the project should be completed without any further delay. The CM fixed a meeting with the General Manager of South Eastern Railway to discuss the issue on 5th January in Ranchi.
The MP said he will be attending a meeting on the over-bridge issue with the Railway authorities at Garden Reach in Kolkata tomorrow.
Mahato also demanded that the closed Rakha Mines be revived by the government. He said that all other copper and iron ore mines should also be revived. The CM said that all mines will be restarted to provide employment opportunities to the local residents.
State BJP president Laxman Gilua was also present during the meeting.
