Lok Sabha member Supriya Sule hoped that Minister of Environment and Forest Jairam Ramesh would sympathetically consider the experiment of the Lavasa city project, where, she said balance of environment and development has been achieved.
In initial stage, she was one of the promoters of the project.
Sule was talking to mediapersons on Monday about the development works she had undertaken in her constituency.
Her remarks assume significance as Lavasa falls in Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, which she has inherited from her father and NCP chief Sharad Pawar. Sule said Lavasa had undertaken various development works such as schools and hospitals, besides employment generation in the hilly region.
Sule expressed sympathy about the rise in fuel prices saying that it had taken place for the sixth time in a year because of which people are facing hardships. “But this is a worldwide phenomenon and the Union government is taking all steps to control the situation.”
