Patna: Patna Development Commissioner Anand Kishore held a meeting with senior government officials on Thursday to discuss a number of schemes and projects aimed to improve life in the state capital.
Among the plans discussed at the meeting were renovation of the iconic Sri Krishna Memorial Hall at the northern end of Gandhi Maidan and new additions and attractions at the historical Gandhi Maidan.
Talking of the S K Memorial Hall, Kishore said that district officials, accompanied by the staff of architect Kapoor and Sons, would visit the dome-shaped building on Saturday to find out ways to improve the existing structure.
"We have come up with many new ideas including opening a classy cafeteria within the premises. Also, an additional exit door would be built to meet any emergency need. Two highmast lights would also be installed at both gates of of the S K Memorial Hall to provide more lights to the incoming and outgoing visitors. The number of rest rooms inside the hall will also be increased and the entire public area, both inside and outside, would be monitored by security cameras," he said.
Regarding buses being parked in front of the hall, Kishore said that no such parking would be allowed in the area and violation of this rule would result in the impounding of the vehicle.
Turning his attention towards Gandhi Maidan, the Development Commissioner said that permanent food zones will be created within the sprawling field and easily identifiable parking places would be designated for public at the outer perimeter of the 'maidan'.
To keep the area clean, trash cans would be installed throughout the field, he said adding the district administration has decided to ditch the usual bamboo structures for seating during Republic Day and Independence Day celebration in favor of pre-fabricated aluminum stair-like structure for visitors to sit and enjoy the show.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
