Asper information provided by Ashok Jadhav’s office it was difficult to get the government’s nod for the construction of the project.Ashok Jadhav had run from pillar to post for seeking clearances which was a difficult task.He had coordinated with various departmentsto obtain permission and finally succeeded in his endeavour.
According to Congress MLA Ashok Jadhav, “It was a difficult task to obtain clearance for the construction of the water pumping station on the plot as it was in possession of the collector.We had forwarded letter to various departments and finally they granted permission for commencement of the work. The opposition party is taking credit for the work performed by me and also has erected various hoardings to create awareness among the people.
