Speaking about various developmental works of Chatrapati Sambhajinagar Municipal Corporation in the city on occasion of the Amrit Jubilee year of the Marathwada Liberation War, he said that Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar being the central hub of development of Marathwada, the state government always provided funds for infrastructure facilities in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar and Marathwada, he said.

The Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar city has taken a leap in development in all sectors including education, health, industry and tourism, he noted.

Taking into consideration this factor, the state government in the past has sanctioned funds of Rs 2,774 crore for water supply scheme, Rs 500 crore for road works and Rs 200 crore for the repair of water channel at Paithan, he informed.

The Chief Minister further said that the government has worked to provide funds for basic facilities like water, electricity and roads to the people of Marathwada.

In order to overcome the scarcity of water situation in Marathwada, work is being done to divert the water of rivers and implementation of water grid project in collaboration with the central government, he said.

Shinde also said that the central government is standing firmly behind the state and substantial provision is being made through the central government for the development of the state, he pointed.

On the Marathwada Liberation War, he said that Marathwada became independent from the tyrannical rule of the Nizam of Hyderabad due to the hardship and sacrifices of many freedom fighters.

Everyone needs to be aware of the sacrifices of these freedom fighters, he added.
