The Union Government has planned to set up such kind of passport centres in around 450 cities, he said.
When asked about the Jat agitation, he said after the talk with the government the Jat community members have been lifting their dharnas and the government has also been working to implement their demands.
Riya (6), a resident of Ashok Nagar, became the first applicant at this centre. She along with her mother Babli and father Vineet Garg had come to apply for passport. The Chief Minister also greeted Riya for availing this opportunity.
