The Haryana chief minister said that Gurugram and Faridabad being the metropolitan cities in the National Capital Region (NCR), separate metropolitan development authorities have already been constituted for both the cities.
“Air pollution is a matter of concern for all of us in these cities and in view of this, two projects of ‘Air Care’ have been started to clean the air,” he said. The Chief Minister said that besides Gurugram and Faridabad, Karnal has also been included in the Smart City project.
According to Khattar, the state government looks to develop facilities including water management, security system, public transport, buildings, good governance, e-education, and telemedicine in these emerging financial hubs in accordance with smart city norms and infrastructure here is likely to be developed accordingly.
While commending the authorities and dedicating the projects to the state, the Chief Minister said the projects have been inaugurated as Diwali a gift.
