Chief Minister inaugurates Gomti Riverfront Project

Mr. Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister spoke recently after the inauguration of the Gomti Riverfront Development Project and the Gaus Mohammad stadium. Congratulating the officials and engineers of the irrigation department, Mr. Yadav complimented them for making a riverfront which had no parallels anywhere. The Gomti Riverfront, he added, also had water transport which linked the old city to the new Lucknow.
This is a beautiful place, where there is greenery and life, unlike other places which are lifeless, he said further. With change of weather, beautiful and colour flowers would bloom here, he pointed out while adding how arrangements had been made to ensure that water coming from drains is purified and then only find its way into the river. This he said would not only minimize pollution in the city but would also make the river clean. Principal Secretary Irrigation Mr. Suresh Chandra said while a riverfront project of such magnitude would have taken 4-6 years to complete, the Gomti riverfront was developed within 2 years. The project is costed at Rs. 1500 crore. It is completely eco-friendly and has a rubber dam which will ensure water at a certain level and the river can also be used for water transport.
