JAIPUR: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday laid the foundation stone of Rajasthan Housing Board‘s ambitious project of residential flats for MLAs in Jaipur. At the same time, he also laid the foundation stones for other schemes of the board, including a residential scheme for the officers of all India services.
Speaking in a virtual ceremony, Gehlot said that the MLA houses built in Vidhayak Nagar East, West and Jalupura were quite old and dilapidated, and therefore, the government approved the project.

Under the project, 160 flats will be constructed.
State Assembly Speaker CP Joshi, UDH Minister Shanti Dhariwal, Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasra and Leader of Opposition Gulabchand Kataria were present on the occasion.
