Mysore/Mysuru: Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Brajesh Pathak has stated that the double-engine Government of PM Narendra Modi at the Centre and Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai in the State has been leading Karnataka towards the path of progress.
During a press conference held at the BJP Media Centre in Chamarajapuram, Mysuru, this morning, Pathak spoke about how the Central Government led by PM Modi has been implementing various visions and programmes since 2014, with the Karnataka State Government also joining hands.
Pathak shared his interaction with tea vendors and cab drivers on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway, who expressed their optimism that many such expressways will be built. He expressed his gratitude to Modi for boosting the confidence of the people. Pathak is currently in Mysuru to campaign for the BJP.
He drew an analogy between Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka, stating that both States have been leading in the electrification of houses, providing power supply even to tiny villages. He emphasised that without electricity, it is not possible to create jobs or build livelihood.
Although Mysuru already has an airport, it is expected to make a big leap in the future with the expansion works soon to begin. The expansion will enable the airport to facilitate the operation of bigger flights and connect more cities. In addition, several initiatives are being taken up under the Jal Jeevan Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) schemes, according to Brajesh Pathak.
In addition to the Outer Ring Road (ORR), plans are underway to build a Peripheral Ring Road in the outskirts of Mysuru City with the sole intention of reducing traffic jams. According to Brajesh Pathak, the works are expected to begin soon.
