The Power Minister said that the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change had also given forest clearance for the construction of a link road from Madhana village to Phandibodiwala via Janglot in the Renukaji Assembly constituency. He added that with the construction of this road, more than 50,000 people of 30 panchayats of the area would be benefited. This would also encourage religious tourism in the state, because the distance to various religious places would reduce. This route would also prove to be beneficial for the Renuka Dam project.

He said that all required formalities were being completed so that the work on this road could start soon. The long-pending demand of the people would be fulfilled by the construction of this road, he added.
