At these Gram Panchayat Sachivalayas, various village level employees of different departments would remain present according to the fixed programme and they would provide various services and information to the rural people being provided through various schemes under their respective departments.
Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that there were several cities which had historical and cultural importance and which had their separate identity as well. It was a matter of great regret that the previous governments did not pay any attention towards their development. Owing to it, their infrastructure crumbled under the pressure of increasing population. Her Government took the situation seriously and decided to upgrade infrastructure and basic amenities of these cities with an eye on future. In the first phase, nine cities
having historical and religious importance from ancient times, had been selected which included Lucknow, Allahabad, Kanpur-Bithoor, Varanasi, Meerut, Agra, Ayodhya-Faizabad, Mathura-Vrindavan and Kannauj.

The progress of these projects was at an advance stage. Ms. Mayawati ji said that in this light, Lucknow had been selected and it was being upgraded with all infrastructure facilities. Lucknow, which happens to be the State Capital, had its unique historical and cultural heritage and it was famous for it all over the country and world. Now, it had acquired a new and more attractive identity because several places and parks of stupendous and breathtaking beauty had been set up. Besides, the number of tourists visiting Lucknow to see various places, museums, parks, galleries etc set up in the honour of saints, gurus and great men born in SC/ST and OBC communities of the society had gone up. Keeping these facts in mind, her Government had sanctioned 53 projects costing Rs. 3,984 crore for the development of basic facilities in Lucknow. She said that her Government had made a serious effort to rejuvenate Lucknow city. The construction of S.T.P.,
having a capacity of 345 M.L.D., was an effort in that direction.
Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that as far as urban infrastructure facilities were concerned, Lucknow would be included in the top cities of the country. Besides, the beautification of historical Hazratganj area of Lucknow, which is also a hub of economic and cultural activities and had completed 200 years of its existence and also Lalbagh area which is adjacent to it, to restore their past glory, had been completed in record time. The contribution of officers related with the beautification works and the Chairman, U.P. State Advisory
Council was commendable.
Ms. Mayawati ji said that during her 15 April 2008 visit of Agra, she had announced to construct a Shoe Mandi to solve the problems being faced by the small shoe makers so that they could sell their products at the Mandi. Now, the Mandi was ready.
