Ranchi, Nov 3 (IANS) Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda Thursday started on a four-day road inspection journey from Ranchi to assess the condition of the state’s roads.
Munda started his journey from his officials residence in Ranchi. On Thursday, he is slated to cover around 300 km by road to reach Deoghar district. He will stay overnight in Deoghar and proceed to second capital Dumka Friday morning to attend a cabinet meeting.
“A technical team and officials will go with me during the road inspection. The move is to assess the condition of the roads. Some of the roads have got damaged due to rainfall,” he said.
