Inaugurating the new district Palghar and announcing it the 36th district of Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said, our government will take all necessary steps to ensure that Palghar is developed into a “modern district’’. But at the same time we will retain its tribal identity. Thus the newly formed district will be the role model for the tribal development. “We will make Palghar as the most modern and model district in the country and every facility would be provided to it. Assistance of agency like CIDCO or any other similar agencies will be taken to develop a ‘planned Palghar’ district,” he said.
Tracking down the efforts made to form the new district, the chief minister said Palghar has been created taking into consideration all the factors and that the district is neither a big nor a too small district.
He said Plaghar would be developed in terms of developing six-roads, establishing health institutes and education centres.
On a query of the distinct being seen as a ‘tribal district’, Chavan said that the government would take all measures to develop the district. He refrained to call it as a tribal district.
