Rajendra Nagar dumping yard to be turned into a Park

The Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) is planning to develop a children’s park at the dumping stretch from Pt Ramavatar Shastri roundabout to McDowell roundabout in Rajendra Nagar.

According to PMC’s empowered standing council member Indradeep Kumar Chandravanshi, he along with PMC commissioner Anupam Kumar Suman has identified three vacant spaces which can be developed into hangout spots. “The PMC has decided to develop a park at the stretch between Pandit Ramavatar Shastri roundabout and McDowell roundabout in Rajendra Nagar, a supermarket near Maharana Pratap Bhawan and a multiplex on the PRD land near Saidpur sump house,” he told this reporter on Thursday.

“These proposals will be tabled in the PMC general meeting on July 31. We have also identified 20,505 sqft empty land near the National Institute of Technology-Patna to develop a cafeteria attached with a mini public library on it. It will be a attraction for students of the educational institutes located on Ashok Rajpath,” said Indradeep, who is also the councillor of ward number 48.

“The ward councillors have been assigned to identify PRD lands to develop more hangout spaces,” Mayor Sita Sahu said. Sources said the the PMC general meeting could also discuss decentralisation of department of birth and death, beautification near Badi Patan Devi Mandir and affordable housing on 10-acre land near Patna City station.
