It will be a one-of-its-kind project in the country.
A sewage treatment plant to clean 170 MLD (Millions of Liters Per Day) water, walkway, jogging park, eco-park, sitting area, and check dams are the plans that will bring back its lost glory, chief minister Raje said.
She said the project will have a botanical garden similar on the lines of the garden in Singapore. The park will be customised considering the local climate.
