Union minister Pradeep Jain today inspected several roads in the Amethi Lok Sabha constituency, represented by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, after locals complained about their poor conditions.

Jain, the Union Minister of State for Rural Development, arrived here this morning and took stock of condition of roads constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) in different Assembly segments. He was accompanied by his department officials.

The minister visited Tiloi-Korwa Road in the Tiloi Assembly segment, Jagdishpur-Raniganj Road in Jagdishpur constituency and Baraulia-Mandka Marg in Gauriganj seat.
