Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath describes piped drinking water supply under the Har Ghar Nal Se Jal scheme as a gift ahead of Janmashtami
Chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday laid the foundation stone of 195 projects worth ₹629.39 crore in Gorakhpur.
Addressing a gathering at Digvijaynath park in Gorakhpur, Yogi Adityanath said Uttar Pradesh was shining in new India and Gorakhpur had a distinguished place in it.
Yogi Adityanath described piped drinking water supply under the Har Ghar Nal Se Jal scheme as a gift ahead of Janmashtami.
Bundelkhand was facing an acute drinking water shortage earlier, but the Har Ghar Nal Se Jal scheme provided relief to the people as it covered 4,000 villages and women would no longer have to trudge 5km to fetch water, he said.
According to the CM’s camp office, the development projects launched on Saturday were mostly related to Public Works department (PWD). They also included projects associated with supply of piped drinking water by Jal Nigam. The CM inaugurated two other key projects in Gorakhpur. These included the widening and strengthening of the road from Gorakhnath temple to the Sports College via Nakaha Overbridge, costing ₹41.20 crore.
