Chief Minister Raghubar Das today laid the foundation stone for the proposed high profile bridge over the Koyal river in the Gadwa district. The bridge will be named Deen Dayal Upadhyay Setu and it will be a boon for the residents of Gadwa, Latehaar and Daltanganj.
Das said today that the development processes being undertaken in the state will propel the state in to the list of developed states in the next 5 years.
The proposed Deen Dayal Upadhyay Setu is to become the longest bridge in the state and the cost of the project is Rs 89 crore.
Many villages and cities in Jharkhand will be connected to the NH2. The Santhal Parganas will receive a 24 hours electricity supply from July 10 this year and Gadwa, Palamu and Latehaar districts will receive a 24 hour electricity supply later this year. The entire state will receive 24 hour electricity supply by 2017. This will be done to enable the implementation of the Digital India program to develop the state.
The Primitive Tribe Battalion of the East Palamu and Dumka Division will be formed by August 15.
The state government is also planning to build 40 animal hospitals. Blueprints for the increase in production of milk and its online sale are being constructed by the government.
He said that the recent strengthening of roads is another important step in the direction of improvement the government is undertaking.
