“We will ensure that the city undergoes comprehensive development in the future. There will be sustainable efforts to execute the projects that were stalled during NCP-Congress regime,” Girish Bapat added. 

PUNE: A day after won the Pune Lok Sabha seat with a record margin, newly elected MP Girish Bapat announced he would give top priority to better transport and adequate water supply. 

Speaking to the media on Friday, Bapat said that he will soon come out with the agenda for the city to improve transport facility  and to supply adequate water to Puneities.

Bapat said he is bound to implement the manifesto that the BJP published for the city during the election campaign. All major projects of the city will be put on fast track.

“We will ensure that the city undergoes comprehensive development in the future. There will be sustainable efforts to execute the projects that were stalled during NCP-Congress regime,” he added. 

Bapat said that despite allegations made by the opponents, he never resorted to personal allegations against them and attempted to maintain decency during the election campaign with a focus on developmental issues.

Bapat, who is also the District Guardian Minister, said that the city will soon get a new guardian minister who will be better than him when it comes to dealing with the issues. Bapat said he will soon submit his resignation as MLA to the authorities concerned. 

Bapat won from Kasba Peth assembly constituency as MLA. He  said, “The party will decide Kasba Peth’s future candidate in coming days.”
