Patna: Patna Mayor Afzal Imam, at a meeting of the ward councilors on Wednesday, said that from now on each ward would get Rs. 60 lakh each, an increase of Rs. 20 lakh each, to develop drainage system, lanes, and indoor toilets as part of the three of the seven resolves of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

"Lighting on streets is far from adequate and roads and by-lanes, particularly the road leading to Kangan Ghat where a giant tent city is coming up, are still not repaired," the ward councilors sounded the alarm.

Imam directed the Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) officials to finish all works by November 30 saying the work should be done on a war-footing level as money would not be an object.

"It was decided in the past meetings to build five borings in each ward and to complete other projects in various areas but due to the lackadaisical attitude of the engineers no progress has been made in these projects," the councilors complained.

The Mayor took PMC engineers to task for failing to follow recommendations made by the ward councilors while also directing them to send the money owed to each ward within next three days.
