A New dawn in Raebareli (Part-1)

In last five years, there had been historical change in the quality of road running through the area. The condition of roads in Uttar Pradesh is worst and it was same in Raebareli. However, due to the efforts of Congress President there has been reasonable change. Now, Allahabad-Lucknow highway has been granted an NH status. The government of India has spent Rs 1060 crore for 460 Kilometres of road in this area. Now, distances and potholes are not the identity of Raebareli. Very soon, each village of Raebareli will find a national highway within a maximum distance of 25 Kilometers running through the area.
A 169-kilometer stretch of road from Raebareli to Jaunpur has been granted a national highway status and Raebareli-Kanpur road, which is 68 kilometers, is a national highway now. A 237-kilometer road connecting Banda, Fatehpur, Lalganj, Raebareli, Sultanpur and Ambedkarnagar is also a national highway now.

There had been a construction of 279 kilometer of roads with the monetary help of Central Road Fund during last five years. Each village has been connected to main road. More than 5300 kilometers of rural roads have been built from 2006 to 2009 under NREGA providing employment to thousands of poor people.

Besides, there had been construction of many classrooms, baraatghar and community marriage halls for the people under MP Local Area Development Fund. More than 134 classrooms have been built costing around two crore 78 lakhs of rupees.

Raebareli was not on the educational map of India until now but due to the special efforts of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, the area is fast emerging as the education hub of India. Now, students do not have to go outside for higher professional education, rather it is attracting students from all over the country. Many professional institutes of excellence have been set up in the area namely NIFT, National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research(NIPER) and Firoz Gandhi Institute of Engineering and Technology. Besides there are plans to set up more such institutes in this area, so that Raebareli could be converted into one of the major educational hubs of the country
