UP to set up infrastructure development fund

Lucknow, April 2 : Uttar Pradesh will soon set up an infrastructure development fund (IDF), Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav announced here Tuesday.

Speaking in Lucknow while launching projects worth Rs.3,337 crore for Noida, Greater Noida and the Yamuna Expressway Authority, Yadav said the fund would ensure all-round development in the state.

"Development has become the fiefdom of a few districts and cities like Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Lucknow. Our government wants development to be all inclusive," he said.

He said that while the eastern district of Sonebhadra produced maximum electricity, places like Noida and Ghaziabad were consuming most of it.

The chief minister also asked officials of Noida Authority to ensure smooth traffic in the city as he had received many complaints of traffic bottlenecks in the city.

Yadav inaugurated 18 projects, including underpasses, power sub-stations, a hospital, a medical university, and Nari Niketan, a girls inter college.

Raja Raman, the chief executive officer of Noida, said that after the inauguration of the 35 mld sewage treatment plant (STP) at sector 123 of Noida, the city has become the only one in the country to treat its sewage in totality.
