Nagpur is being looked upon as one of the emerging super cities in the country. With the rising level of economic activity in the city the expectations of the locals are also very high. Shri Nitin Gadkari has been instrumental in the development of not only the city but also the entire region. Within one year after registering a record victory in the general elections of 2014 Shri Nitin Gadkari initiated immediate action for the development of the city & the region. Some of his major initiatives include:
Propelling the Nagpur Metro Rail project
A project that will change the face of the city, was under consideration of MoUD for past two years. Shri Gadkari followed up and got it approved from the cabinet and the ministry within two months. The foundation stone of the project was laid by Hon. PM Shri Narendra Modiji on 21st August 2014 and the work for the same has started with an unmatched speed.
Establishment of IIM, AIIMS & NIPER at Nagpur
Thanks to the persistent efforts of Shri Nitin Gadkari, Nagpur can now boast of 3 internationally reputed educational institutions viz. the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) & National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER). Land has been identified for all these institutions and the work for establishments is expected to start soon.
Launch pad for MIHAN
the project which has the potential of changing the fate of the entire Vidarbha region unfortunately was a victim of political apathy in the past few years. Shri Gadkari, who has been an advocate of the same since the very beginning, immediately took up the issue with the State and the Central governments to get the necessary sanctions. He also now heads a monitoring committee for the same project. The project which was earlier lying on the death bed has now got a new lease of life and is ready to take off.
Sports Authority of India (SAI)
The Sports Authority of India (SAI) has very limited presence in Maharashtra. Due to the persuasion of Shri Nitin Gadkari the Ministry of Sports & Youth Welfare has agreed to establish a regional centre at Nagpur. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation has initiated a process of handing over 100 acres of land for establishment of the centre, which will enhance the sports infrastructure and training facilities in Nagpur.
Apart for helping thousands of individuals, families and organizations in their times of crises Shri Nitin Gadkari has initiated several steps like setting up of the Kanhan Multipurpose project at Jamghat which will quench the thirst of thousands of citizens in coming times, Rejuvenation of the Nag River which lends its name to the Nagpur City, setting up of Convention Centre at Nagpur and many more projects.
The people of Nagpur and the adjoining region are quiet well convinced that their region will witness a new dawn of development under the able leadership of Shri Nitin Gadkari, the new Member of Parliament from Nagpur.
