Udaipur : Chief minister Vasundhara Raje  said the state government has always given priority for the development of backward and tribal dominated areas in Banswara. ” We have never left  any stones unturned for creating and extending facilities/services to the people here. Lately, the government  has been working on a project worth rupees 800 crores to provide potable water to 399 villages in the district” Raje said while addressing people at JoganiyaMata dham in Kushalgarh.

Some peasants complained about erratic power supply in the area. Raje instructed the officers to call up Sarpanchs and enquire about the power availability in villages.
