I am happy to be with people during the celebration of Deepavali festival. We are starting different road projects today. The work will begin soon for these projects. The conditions of the roads in the city are very bad. All the roads will be repaired. But the interior roads and the roads in the rural areas of the city should be repaired first so that people will not hesitate to travel and settle in these areas. Only with the development of these areas, we will see real development. The rural roads within the city limits will be given special preference to ease up the traffic in the main city.” J R Lobo said during his trip to different places. He wished well for people on the occasion of Deepavali, the festival of lights.
