JAIPUR: Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot laid the foundation stone of development projects worth around Rs 1132.83 crores at Hindoli in Bundi district on Saturday.

He laid foundation stone of Hindoli-Nainwan Chambal Drinking Water Project (Rs 974 crores), Nursing College (Rs 21 crores), ITI (Rs 10.50 crores), Agriculture College (Rs 6.50 crores) and Government College (Rs 4.50 crores) along with three major roads with an estimated expenditure of Rs 117 crores.

Speaking on the occasion, CM Gehlot said that his government is committed to providing facilities to the common man.

He said the state government did not slow down the pace of development even during Covid-19 pandemic.

“Along with education, medicine, electricity, water, irrigation, roads, urban development and sports development, many public welfare decisions like pension to all the weaker sections of the society, old pension schemes for the working class were taken,” he said.

He said Hindoli-Nainwan Chambal Drinking Water Project would ensure the availability of safe drinking water to 185 villages and 198 hamlets of Hindoli and 101 villages and 89 hamlets in Nainwan town.

Under the project, seven clean reservoirs and pump houses, 70 high reservoirs, about 575 km of main clean water pipeline and about 742 km of main distribution pipeline will be laid down and more than 82 thousand domestic connections will be given.

The chief minister said that Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project (ERCP) is very important for irrigation and drinking water supply in 13 districts of Rajasthan. “For a long time, we have been demanding to declare it a project of national importance. But the Centre has not yet taken any positive decision,” he said.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his election rallies in Jaipur and Ajmer, addressed the ERCP. Recently, in the 30th meeting of the Northern Zonal Council under the chairmanship of Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Jaipur, this issue was raised,” the chief minister added.

Gehlot said that the Rural Olympic Games will start from August 29, 2022 in which about 29 lakh players will participate. “Village talents will get a chance to play and they will get new opportunities to make their future in the sports world. Rural Olympics will create a new environment for sports across the country,” he hoped.

He also announced that 63 bighas of land along with an amount of more than Rs 147 crores has been sanctioned for a new medical college in Bundi.

Stressing his government’s thrust to improve quality education, Gehlot said, “Out of 210 new government colleges have been opened by the government, including 96 girls’ colleges. At the same time, NOC has been issued for 675 new private colleges. Government nursing colleges are being opened in every district and public health colleges in every division.”
