Speed up Rourkela smart city projects: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan urges CM Naveen, MoS Puri

Bhubaneswar: Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has urged Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and MOS Hardeep Singh Puri to expedite projects under Rourkela Smart City Limited (RSL).
Citing information received through the RTI Act, Dharmendra said in the letter that the Government of India and the Government of Odisha have sanctioned Rs 376 crore (Rs 188 crore each) from 2015-16 to 2017-18 to RSL, but only 22.23 Crores of rupees have been spent.“It is unfortunate that four years since the sanction of grants from the Central and the State Government, RSL has not been able to show significant progress in the project,” he wrote.
The Union Minister has written separately to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and Union Urban Development Minister Hardip Singh Puri seeking their personal intervention in the matter to expedite the project.
