Smriti Irani bowls Amethi over with development galore
In just 100 days, she has launched projects worth Rs 800 crore in Amethi — a clear sign that Union Minister Smriti Irani is in no mood to allow the Gandhis to retrieve their lost ground at their erstwhile pocket borough.
Smriti Irani, who concluded her two-day visit to her parliamentary constituency on Thursday, told the people of Amethi that in the past 100 days, she had launched 210 programmes at the cost of Rs 225 crores and a Rs 550 crore project of the railways was also on.
The Minister said that she plans to develop eight tourist spots and has initiated work on 210 roads in the constituency. A lake will also be created at a cost of Rs 85.7 crores.
