    It is always welcome and pleasure to live in an advanced city but more priorities for advancement should be given to provide advance facilities in villages and poor farmers of the nation.

    City tab smart banegi jab sabse pehle sadak par se gadde gayab ho.. Baaki sab chije secondary hain… Aakhir janta ko achhi sadak par chalne ka adhikaar Hai ki nahi?

    Dusri baat.. Jo dukandaar apni dehleez se bahar footpath tak par vyapaar karne lagte hain uske khilaaf bahut hi sakht aur kadi anushasanaatmak karywahi ki jarurat Hai..

    Traffic air sadak sahi rahe to sheher wese hi adha smart dikhne lagega..
