New Delhi: The Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Smart City Project came under attack from Aap Aadmi party (AAP) on Friday for including only Lutyens' Delhi in Smart City Project. 

A day after the announcement, AAP leader Ashish Khetan questioned the inclusion of only Lutyens' Delhi, which is already much better that rest of the city in terms of infrastructure and other facilities, and ignoring the remaining city.

Another AAP leader Ashutosh also questioned that why there were no cities from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. 

The Centre on Thursday announced the names of first 20 cities that are to be developed into Smart Cities of India with a proposed investment of Rs 50,802 crore during the next five years.

Bhubaneswar emerged on top among 20 cities, including Pune, Ahmedabad, Chennai and Bhopal, that have been selected as part of the first batch of the Smart City initiative. However, Mumbai failed to make it to the list.

The NDMC area of the Delhi Union Territory also made it to the grade with other cities like Pune, Jaipur, Surat, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Jabalpur, Visakhapatnam, Solapur, Davanagere, Indore, Coimbatore, Kakinada, Belagavi, Udaipur, Guwahati, Chennai, Ludhiana and Bhopal completing the list.

Overall, 97 cities from across the country were put up for the Smart City Challenge competition.
