There is a shrine of Sai Baba in Shirdi in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra while in Shegaon there is 'Gajanan Maharaj Samadhi Mandir'. Gadkari along with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis performed 'bhoomipoojan' of network of cement concrete roads here.

The two BJP leaders vowed to make Maharashtra's second capital a top city in the country with number of development works. Fadnavis said these cement concrete roads will last for at least 50 years.

The cement roads worth Rs 1,000 crores are being constructed in the city, including Rs 300 crore cement roads in South-West Assembly constituency which is represented by Fadnavis himself.

The Metro Rail work is also in full swing and by 2019, Nagpur will be a developed in to a global city, said the Chief Minister.

Gadkari also said tar roads are not suitable for Nagpur and don't last long hence cement roads are being constructed by the Nagpur Improvement Trust and the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC).

The soil will be tested before taking up cement roads, he added. Road works to the tune of Rs 28 crores was already undertaken during the last two-and-half-year regime of BJP-SS, he said.
