Ahead of Zilla Parishad elections likely in March, the Maharashtra government has sanctioned funds worth Rs 130 crore for road works in the rural areas. These works, spread over 12 poll-bound districts, will be undertaken under the Mukya Mantri Gramsadak Yojana (MMGY).
Government Resolutions (GR) related to the projects were released yesterday.
As many as 26 Zilla Parishads are completing their terms by April 2017. Hence, elections in these district-level governing bodies are expected in March 2017.
Before the announcement of polling dates, which will trigger code of conduct, banning announcement of projects, the state government has sanctioned road construction and repair works in these districts.
A total of 14 GRs were issued on Monday, of which 12 related to MMGY. The cumulative cost of works sanctioned under MMGY is around Rs 130 crore.
