Chief Minister Eknath Shinde inaugurated six new public facilities in the Kalyan-Dombivli area on MArch 3, including a modern maternity home, a cancer hospital, a fish market, the Dr. Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari Hall, the autopsy section of Dombivli’s Shastri Nagar Hospital and the Metro 12 line from Kalyan to Taloja.

After the metro line’s foundation stone ceremony, which was attended by Deputy Chief Ministers Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar, CM Shinde concluded the event with a ‘Government at Your Doorstep’ session. The piling work for the metro construction began shortly after the event.

CM Shinde updated residents on various new development initiatives in the city. In pre-election mode, he complimented his government, claiming that it provided benefits directly to “needy beneficiaries”. He praised initiatives such as the Samruddhi Expressway, the Trans-Harbour Link, and the several Metros, which he claimed had propelled Maharashtra to first place in development. Shinde further claimed that the state “won the number one award for cleanliness” and that his deep clean push had dramatically reduced pollution.

The Chief Minister went on to say that his government has fulfilled its word and “solved” the Maratha reservation problem. “To give strength to the unemployed, this government is now organising the Namo Maha Rozgar Mela on March 6 and 7 in Thane district as well,” CM Shinde said.
