Jhansi. Many schemes are being run to make Jhansi of UP a smart city. Some schemes have also been completed, but there are many such schemes which have become Birbal’s khichdi and whose construction work is not taking the name of completion. One such scheme is the Antiya Tal Beautification Project. The work of reviving and beautifying Antiya Tal located in the center of Jhansi city is going on for the last 3 years, but it has not been completed yet. The residents of Jhansi have also been waiting for a long time for the completion of this work.
This work of beautification was started in November 2020. This work should have been completed by July 2021. This work was to be done at a cost of 8 crore 80 lakhs, but till date this work has not been completed. Social activist Bhanu Sahay said that long ago, during the tenure of Mayor B.Lal, a boundary wall was built around it to secure the Antiya Tal. Along with this, the encroachment was also removed, but in the name of Smart City, the boundary wall was broken again and the work was started again. There is only wastage of money here. There is no idea of when the work will be completed.
work will be completed soon
In this matter, Jhansi Mayor Ramteerth Singhal said that the beautification of Antiyatal is an ambitious plan of the Municipal Corporation. The work was going on for a long time, but in between some people living around the pond had gone to the court and had also taken a stay order from there. Now this matter has been resolved. After which work has been started again with full speed. Antiya Tal will be inaugurated in the next few months. It will be known as a big tourist spot.
