Municipal Commissioner Gautam Jain today conducted an inspection of various roads of the city including Cool road, Garha road, near STP plant and the road leading to Dina village.

As per the information, a sewerage pipe was laid from Pholariwal to Dina village under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme which was never cleaned.
