The electrical appliance in both markets has been repaired many times.
“Alankar theater project is for further development. Therefore, the allegation made by opposition corporators is baseless. We’ve got a fund that no one has been able to raise for the last four years. And we’re also trying to get next year’s funding on time. We are doing our job completely honestly. Garbage collected during this year’s Bodgeshwar Yatra was collected in time”.
