A MODERN weekly vegetable haat on the lines of the one at Bittan Market will be constructed at Kotra Sultanabad. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday laid the foundation stone for the construction of the structure for this weekly market and 512 houses for urban poor at Bapu Nagar and Shabari Nagar.

Both schemes will cost about Rs 9.36 crore under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). The weekly vegetable haat will be constructed on 7,141 square meter around Kamla Nagar Police Station with a facility for 932 vendors.

The arrangement of an auction zone and place for fruit hawkers will be made separately. A parking lot will also be developed.

In the same locality, 512 houses will be constructed for residents of Bapu Nagar and Shabari Nagar on 17,499 square meter area. In each of the multi-story complexes, 32 houses will be constructed. 

Reiterating the Government’s efforts to provide houses for all people living in shanties, Chouhan said initially, 33,000 houses would be constructed for the urban poor. He added, schemes to construct two lakh houses should be prepared and the State Government would provide all possible help in this work.

He further hoped that Bhopal would soon get an international airport and become an IT hub. Mayor Sunil Sood spoke about the schemes in detail. BMC chairman Ramdayal Prajapati proposed the vote of thanks.

Divisional commissioner B R Naidu, Commissioner, urban administration, Malay Shrivastava, district collector S K Mishra, BMC commissioner Manish Singh, BJP district president Alok Sanjar, local corporator Anil Agrawal and several other corporators were also present. BMC also displayed information about projects underway under the JNNURM.
