Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said Kalyan-Dombivali would be developed into a smart and safe city. The Centre’s funds for developing smart cities would be used to build state-of-the-art infrastructure complete with facilities resolving the problems of drinking water and other basic amenities in 27 villages in the periphery.
Fadnavis was addressing a rally organised by the Kalyan-Dombivali Vikas Aghadi led by the BJP ahead of the crucial municipal corporation elections on November 1. The Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC) polls for 122 seats will determine the political might of the BJP which was voted to power in Maharashtra on October 31, 2014. At present, the KBMC is controlled by the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance.
The chief minister said, “We have taken up the development of Kalyan-Dombivali on priority and it has also been approved under the smart cities project undertaken by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre. There would be no paucity of funds for development, which is our highest priority.”
