Will complete projects in five years, UP tells World Bank

Lucknow, (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government Tuesday assured a visiting World Bank (WB) team that it would complete all the projects funded by it in the next five years rather than the stipulated time line of seven years.

The assurance, to the team led by Jun Matsumoto, was given by Irrigation Minister Shivpal Singh Yadav, who also claimed that the state had set a new record by increasing the flow in the Lower Ganga Irrigation System from 4,200 cusecs to 6,380 cusecs.

Yadav also promised the WB team to take them on a chopper ride on their next visit to 16 districts where World Bank-aided schemes and projects are underway so they can themselves see the progress and meet the 1 lakh beneficiaries.
