azam-khan-story_650_040914052146Rampur, Aug 30 -Uttar Pradesh Urban development minister Mohammad Azam Khan today criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for converting Auranzeb Marg in the national capital to Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam Marg recently. "The renaming of a road on Dr Kalam proves a small heart of the PM as he did not name a new road on Dr Kalam," he said while adding that PM had shedded crocodile tears on the death of Dr Kalam but could not find a new road to be announced on his name. Recently, Auranzeb road in the national capital was re-named as Dr APJ Abdul Kalam road. Addressing a gathering after inaugurating a Rs 100 crore sewege treatment plant in his assembly constitutency here, Mr Khan alleged that Mr Modi should be held responsible for the recently violence in Gujarat and it was similar like he did to trigger the communal riots of Gujarat in 2002. He said that due to callous approach of Mr Modi, nine people lost their lives in Gujarat recently and public property to the tune of several crores rupees were destroyed. The Samajwadi Party leader also questioned the announcement of the Central government to make Rampur a smart city." We cannot hope anything from this BJP government at the Centre as they always make false promises to the people," he alleged. Meanwhile, Mr Khan will lead a team of officials of Rampur and Moradabad to a trip to Colombia in South America tomorrow. The ostensible purpose of the trip is to "study" how to make 'Smart Cities' of Rampur and Moradabad. Among those who will be making the foreign tour, besides minister Azam Khan, are secretary SP Singh of the urban development department of the state government, city commissioner, Moradabad, Sanjay Kumar Singh, and city commissioner, Ghaziabad, Abdul Samad. The managing director of the Jal Nigam and the director of the Construction and Design Services of Jal Nigam will also be part of the six-member delegation, set to attend a workshop on the management of solid wastes and water resources at Bogota, the Colombian capital.
