Shah rues not spending enough time in his assembly segment

Ahmedabad, Mar 30 (PTI) BJP president Amit Shah today said his party has ensured the people of his assembly constituency here do not face any difficulty even when he is not around.

Shah is the MLA from Naranpura here.

Addressing a gathering in his constituency, Shah said his larger responsibility as the national president of the BJP does not allow him to spend enough time in his assembly segment.

But the BJP and party councillors in the area have made arrangements to ensure the people of his constituency do not face difficulty even when he is not around, he said.

“I must say I have not given as much time to the people of my constituency as an MLA should. But the BJP has made arrangements to ensure they don’t face any problems.” Shah, on a visit to his home state, was in Naranpura to lay the foundation stone for the Rs 20-crore renovation and modernisation work of D N Patel Community Hall undertaken by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).

Earlier in the day, he attended the assembly.

“Gautambhai (Shah, Ahmedabad mayor) told me works worth around Rs 1.25 crore have been done here, and many works are in the pipeline. My councillors are serving people with full dedication,” Shah said.

Shah said development model adopted in Gujarat when Narendra Modi was chief minister is the best in the country.

Gujarat has emerged as No. 1 state in terms of providing urban facilities.

“In terms of urban facilities, Gujarat is No 1 state.

Today Gujarat is among the most urbanised states in the country,” the BJP chief added.
