Chowpatty was built without NOC

BJP MLA Rajesh Munat said, Smart City project came in 2018. Rs 209 crore was spent from Smart City Fund to improve the traffic system in Raipur city, Rs 28 crore was spent for multi-level parking. The old pond has become a laboratory. The original smart city concept was reduced to zero. Only five big projects have been built. Not a single smart road was built. Chowpatty was built without NOC.

In response, OP Choudhary said, information about how a Chowpatty was made by making NOC in the Youth Hub will be given to the city administration.

Loot in the name of smart city

Munat said, by bringing a project in the name of Youth Hub, it has been converted into a Chowpatty. The High Court was also misled. There was so much panic before the elections that the process of allotment of shops was expedited. Looting was carried out in the name of smart city. We were sitting on hunger strike. Will investigation be conducted against those persons who have acted contrary to the rules?

Answering Munat's question, OP Chaudhary said, the member's concern is justified. There will be a departmental inquiry into this matter. Regarding the removal of Chowpatty, action will be taken after discussion with the Urban Administration Department.
