Haryana Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar has assured Gurgaon residents that he will make it a ‘super Smart City’.
He admitted that Gurgaon could not find a place in the first list of Smart Cities selected by the Central government.
What he has in mind is the setting up a ‘Gurgaon Development Authority (GDA)’ by bringing a Bill in the Assembly after addressing objections raised by the Supreme Court.
“Gurgaon is already on the path of progress. We are trying to bring metro rail up to Manesar. Work on three more roads connecting the city with Delhi is already on,” Khattar said.
He said the Centre has given an in-principle nod for modernisation of the Gurgaon railway station. There is no dearth of money, but the sanctioned funds are not being used.
Public Works Department and Forest Minister Rao Narbir Singh said Gurgaon generated highest revenue in the state but got the lowest funds for development.
