Have made a underpass in Etmadpur as lakhs of people cross the railway lines and many have become victims of rail accidents and cases were filed against many citizens. I used Rs 3.5 crores from the fund to build the underpass. We also had lot of electricity problems so I have got new lines laid for electricity to ensure power cuts are minimised.
