Ahead of ZP polls, Maha approves Rs 130 cr rural road works

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Ahead of Zilla Parishad elections likely in March, the has sanctioned funds worth Rs 130 crore for road works in the rural areas.

These works, spread over 12 poll-bound districts, will be undertaken under the Mukya Mantri Gramsadak (MMGY).



Resolutions (GR) related to the projects were released yesterday.

As many as 26 Zilla Parishads are completing their terms by April 2017. Hence, elections in these district-level governing bodies are expected in March 2017.

Before the announcement of polling dates, which will trigger code of conduct, banning announcement of projects, the state has sanctioned road construction and repair works in these districts.

A total of 14 GRs were issued on Monday, of which 12 related to MMGY. The cumulative cost of works sanctioned under MMGY is around Rs 130 crore.

Such a decision is certainly aimed at taking political mileage ahead of elections. However, it will not benefit only a handful of people, but also the common man, said a senior BJP leader.
