Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday virtually inaugurated various development projects worth Rs 154 crore in Ahmedabad city in his home state Gujarat. Shah also addressed a function jointly organised by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA). ”My (Lok Sabha) constituency of Gandhinagar was already developed before I became an MP from there. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that we have to do our best in every sector,” the minister said, adding that all parliamentarians need to work for the development of their respective constituencies.
A new flyover at Sanathal in Ahmedabad was one of the projects that he inaugurated during the event. Speaking about it, he said, ”There were problems at Sanathal due to the traffic going towards Saurashtra and Bhavnagar bypass (which also passes through the same crossroads). Besides, the city’s traffic is huge. So the flyover at Sanathal will solve those issues.” Shah also inaugurated one ‘smart school’ and two parks for senior citizens in his constituency during the programme. Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and officials and office-bearers of the AMC and the AUDA were present at the event.
