The Trust says that Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, has applauded the Dawoodi Bohra Community’s keenness to establish the first smart city model in Mumbai by way of an urban renewal project.
According to SBUT, Chief Minister assured that his government will give full support and help clear all hurdles so that the redevelopment project is completed on time.
The Chief Minister also praised the social upliftment initiatives undertaken by 53rd Dai Al-Mutlaq, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) and applauded how the Dawoodi Bohra community has contributed towards the state’s and the nation’s growth and development under the Syedna’s leadership, says SBUT.
