I feel extremely proud and honoured to take charge as Mayor of the city of Bhavnagar, fondly called 'Bhavena'. Bhavnagar is blessed to have good civic amenities like, road, water supply, underground drainage, filtration plant, etc. since the time of erstwhile rulers of Bhavnagar State and especially Late Maharaja Shri Krishnakumarsinji. Magnificent buildings and monuments like Ganga Deri, Town Hall, Barton Library, Darbari Kothar, Takhteshwar Temple are some of the landmarks of this historical city. It is our duty to make every effort to preserve this treasure for our posterity.
Bhavnagar Municipal Corporation, in the last few years, has carry out many developmental works. Recently, a multi-purpose hall & performing stage has been constructed which has been named Atal Bhihari Vajpayee Open Air Theatre . Forthcoming projects like Auditorium, Art Gallery, City Museum, Learners' Swimming Pool etc. , when completed, will give new identity to the city and will be favourites amongst sports & arts lovers. These and many more such infrastructure development works will put Bhavnagar on the road-map of 'Gatishil Gujarat'. The Corporation is also making a lot of its services 'online' as a part of e-governance.
As responsible citizens, it is also our duty to pay our municipal taxes regularly, maintain cleanliness and make our city CLEAN & GREEN.
In the end, I convey my best wishes to all of you and solicit your cooperation & support to help Bhavnagar Municipal Corporation in its endeavour to provide better services in the years to come.
