Chandigarh, Oct 24 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal urged the World Bank (WB) to allot a few major projects to revamp the state's canal irrigation network and impart quality education in the state.
Mr Badal expressed this view during a meeting with World Bank Director (Quality Assurance) Prem Garg here yesterday evening.
Taking part in the deliberations Mr Badal informed that the WB aided rural water supply and roads projects in the state had been recently rated satisfactory by a task team of World Bank.
