Pune Municipal Corporation Kalyani Nagar Ward Office Junior Engineer, Devendra Rajput, has shown swiftness in doing civil works such as footpath construction, footpath repairs, drainage repairs etc. Thus, Kalyani Nagar residents have greatly appreciated his work.

In an exclusive interview with Pune Pulse, Devendra Rajput, Junior Engineer, Road department, Pune Municipal Corporation, said “I was appointed to the PMC this year & to the Kalyani Nagar Ward office in April 2023. The ward office has been receiving several complaints about various issues such as footpath, drainage related & other issues. Hence, taking cognizance of all these, we started fixing everything starting from the footpath near D Mart which was in a very poor condition. We have fixed drainage issues as various drainages in the area had uneven storm water lines. Also, the covers of various drainages were either broken or not there at all. So, we have made storm water lines of even levels, put covers on drainages, reduced water logging etc. Also, road widening work is going on at full speed near Bishops School & it will be completed soon.”

Several residents of Kalyani Nagar have admired his work greatly.

Monica Sharma, Resident of Kalyani Nagar, said “Devendra Rajput’s dedication to our community is truly exceptional. Not only did he repair the footpaths, but he also took the initiative to address other road surfaces. His commitment to improving our infrastructure demonstrates his unwavering devotion to making our neighbourhood better.”

Drayson Dixon, Resident of Kalyani Nagar, said “I am genuinely impressed by Rajput’s holistic approach to infrastructure improvement. His efforts extend beyond footpaths to road surfaces, showcasing his commitment to enhancing our living environment. It’s reassuring to have such a proactive government officer in our midst.”

Munir Vastani, Resident of Kalyani Nagar, said “Devendra Rajput is a true asset to our community. His dedication to resolving infrastructure issues, including road surfaces, has transformed Kalyani Nagar. We appreciate his tireless efforts in making our neighbourhood safer and more convenient for everyone.”

Rajput added, “These works aren’t possible without a solid and hard working team. Hence, our team has worked hard and contributed to all these works.”
