VADODARA: Union finance minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday laid foundation stone for development projects worth Rs68.5 crore during his one-day tour to Karnali-Chandod villages near here which he had adopted under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY).

It was in December 2014 that Jaitley had adopted Karnali village under SAGY. Befitting his portfolio in the Union Cabinet, Karnali, a village in Dabhoi taluka of Vadodara district is famous for housing the ancient temple of Lord Kubereshwar – a God associated with wealth.

As Rajya Sabha MP elected from Gujarat, Jaitley, had adopted Karnali under SAGY – a scheme that was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October 2014.

During his visit, Jaitley offered prayers and performed ‘puja’ at Lord Kubereshwar temple and at the historic Malharrao ghat on the banks of river Narmada.

Gujarat Pavitra Yatradham Vikas Board has given in-principle approval to Rs45 crore worth projects at Karnali-Chandod for overall development of the popular pilgrimage spot.

Jaitley laid foundation stone for Rs1.50 crore Chandod-Mandva road, dedicated a smart classroom at a school in Chandod and inspected the progress of the work to construct Rs16 crore worth bridge connecting Karnali and Chandod on Orsang river which flows between the two villages.

The bridge will reduce travelling time for tourist to 3km. Presently, tourists have to travel 45km even as the two villages are located adjacent to each other.

Addressing a gathering, Jaitley said the recent Union Budget witnessed more allocation towards development of rural infrastructure and agriculture because they want to uplift the rural areas of the country.

When you start rating a bus station as the best in the country and give wide publicity then it should meet the high standards laid out. More than half of the shops are empty. The place is much better than before but much needs to be done.

The parking is Good. But There is no proper lighting in the parking area. Pus cleanliness could be a shade better. The shops are average with practically no clientele. The escalator works. The food court is also good..
