                  UPA divided AP State in a last moment unconditional,later NDA government came to power but did nothing(Ex-polavaram project cost approx 20-25 thousand crores and giving every year 100 - 400 crs,just this money is enough for workers & employees snacks charges),i think only 1 way for development just sell our AP & TS states to britishers or Americans or China etc..

                            Madhubani (Bihar) should be included in the list of smart city keeping in view the importance of its world famous painting.

                                Meerut definitely has better claim over Rampur but local authorities failed in presenting themselves. A little hope is still there as two more cities are to make their place in the list of 100.

                                100 crore istence for 5 years. Is this a gimmick? One flyover could cost you 100 crores.

                                  I don't believe it why from uttar pradesh you people are selecting bareily upon meerut when u also know that meerut is just 60kms away but u are selecting rae bareily which is at much a distance, u should first improve cities which are in the vicinity of the capital then u should move for further cities. It's pretty logical
