LUCKNOW: The Uttar Pradesh government has withdrawn Congress president Sonia Gandhi's parliamentary constituency, Rae Bareli, as well as Meerut from the list of towns to be developed as smart cities.

It has been done until the Centre clears its stand on selection and omission of either city for the project.

Municipal heads of the two cities have been asked not to participate in the Centre's smart city workshop in New Delhi on Saturday.

"Representatives from the rest of the cities would be sent to attend the workshop," urban development secretary Sri Prakash Singh said.

Sources said the move comes after the Centre pressed the state government to choose either of the two.

"Both the cities had scored equally on the Centre's parameters. Including one and omitting other would have sent a wrong message to the people in the cities,'' said a source.

The move comes days after minister Azam Khan said he was willing to withdraw his assembly constituency Rampur from the list if controversy between Rae Bareli and Meerut persisted.

Earlier, Union minister Venkaiah Naidu claimed that the state government gave priority to Rae Bareli over Meerut that the BJP represents.

The Centre had allocated a quota of 13 cities to the state, but it handed over a list of 14 cities including Rae Bareli and Meerut.

The state had invited financial bids from a panel of 10 consultants for developing all 14 cities in September.
