Lauding the CSR activities of the refinery, Maurya said the officers should interact with public representatives of the area from time to time for valuable suggestions.
"Every village in the state would have road connectivity under Deen Dayal Sampark Marg Yojna and 13 lakh houses constructed under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna would be given to the poor," he said, adding that the state government has been successful in taking back plots that were earlier occupied by the mafia.
