But the burgeoning population and increasing demands are a cause of concern to us" she added.She also expressed concern at the rising number of vehicles in the state and said that the 50 lakhs vehicles in the city emits lot of pollutants thereby creating problem for the residents here.

"These are some of the challenges the State is facing," she said, and outlined number of measures to solve them such as mono rail, metro rail, high capacity buses.
