Fortunately, Nanded city has been included in the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission by the Central Government. Consequently, various projects are being concurrently implemented in the run-up to the Tercentenary Celebrations.
These projects, in brief, include construction and widening of roads, building of flyovers, improvement of sewerage and water facilities, upgrading of the traffic management and security system, building of a 100 feet road on each side of the Godavari with adequate bathing points, constructing a modern airport and upgrading of the existing railway station.
Our idea is that all this comes up in consonance with genuine aspirations of the Sikhs who have distinguished themselves as world citizens and members of a universal religion. Our further endeavour is that they also help us improve the conditions of life of the down and out people of the area according to the spiritual manifesto of Guru Nanak.
