Tribune News Service

Hisar, July 25

Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala stated that the state had set a target to lay 1,000 km of rural roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (PMGSY) by the end of the current financial year.

The Deputy Chief Minister said the state had got the funds for eight districts for laying the roads. “While eight districts have got the approval under the PMGSY, I hope that the rest 14 districts will get the same soon. We have set a target to lay 1,000 km of rural roads for better rural connectivity during the year 2020-21”, he said.

Dushyant said he would propose a greenfield project to the Centre from Fazilka to Kolkata which would be the part of the East–West corridor. He said the proposal would strengthen the connectivity on the East–West side as most of the connectivity is in the North-South direction. “We are also coming up with two more road projects. One of them is proposed to start from Dabwali to Agra via Jind and the other one will connect Hisar to Kundli-Manesar-Palwal via Tosham, Mahendragarh and Rewari. These projects will improve the East-West road connectivity of the state,” he added.

He said the state had got approval of 11 rural road projects for 131-km long roads in Sirsa district. He said the Panchayat Department would give 200 tonne of plastic waste to the Public Works Department to be used in the construction of roads in the sanctioned project.
