The new facilities added to the city have turned Tehran into one of the most advanced cities of the world. Currently, the conditions of Tehran have improved dramatically in compare to eight years ago. ”
“For instance, Tehran Municipality succeeded to open Sadr Tunnel under Ghalibaf. These kinds of projects are very important for Tehran and its citizens. On the other hand, Ghalibaf’s influence helps him to receive maximum supports from the governmental organizations.” Dabir added.
