Appreciating the efforts, Gehlot said the board which was lying defunct during the tenure of previous BJP government, is now playing a crucial role in systematic development.
Gehlot said, “The previous government was seeing the RHB as a white elephant and planned to close it. However, the spirit of employees has given a new lease of life to the board. It is not only working in direction to provide roof to poor and others, but also developing infrastructural projects,” he said.
In Jaipur, two major projects such as city park and coaching hub will be developed.
An official said, the RHB will develop the city park on around 52 acre in Mansarovar area which is expected to benefit more than 50 colonies. The board plans to plant 21,000 trees of 32 different species in the area. The jogging track will be 3.5-km long, slightly shorter than Central Park. However, the size of the park is claimed to be bigger the Central Park which is 42 acres, he said.
Around 75% area of the earmarked land will be developed as green. The project has parking for 799 cars and 325 two-wheelers. The main entrance plaza of the park will be constructed at Madhyam Marg end.
The park will have three other gates which will open on Aravali Marg, V T Road and New Sanganer Road. Similarly, the board will develop a coaching hub in Pratap Nagar of the city which would accommodate nearly 70,000 students.
An official said, “The estimated cost of the project will be Rs 231 crore. Construction will be done only on 40% of the earmarked land and 60% land will remain open.”
As per the plan, there are eight education towers proposed in the project. Construction of five towers will be undertaken in phase-1 and the remaining three towers will be developed in phase-II.
