Mathura 2016.04.21 (VT): The birthplace of Lord Shri Krishna, Mathura, has got one more opportunity to be a part of National Capital Region (NCR). The Central Government has asked for the proposal in this context, whose presentation will be given by the MVDA Vice President Mr. C. P. Singh.
The city of Mathura, which is only 145 kilo meters far from the national capital, has been trying for long to be a part of NCR. However, the distance of the city from the Delhi boundary is just 125 kilometers. The people of Braja were keen to be a part of NCR development, for which the then MLA Kunwar Manwendra Singh originally took the initiative. Present MLA Mr. Pradeep Mathur is now putting his efforts into this proposal. MP Ms. Hema Malini is also trying to support the cause at her level.
The possibility of becoming part of the NCR is even stronger this time around since Bharatpur is even further from Delhi than is Mathura, still it was made a part of the NCR in 2013. The NCR stretches quite far in every direction, touching Muzaffarnagar 125 km to the north and Bharatpur, 200 km to the south. The Government is again trying to expand the borders of NCR for which it is looking for proposals from Mathura that will showcase the importance of Mathura to the NCR.
This proposal will be presented to Central Government by the MVDA Vice President Mr. C. P. Singh on April 28th.
