In order to free the city from traffic jams and pollution, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be soon inaugurating several highways in the next six months in Delhi, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said today.
In the last two years, the Modi government has provided Rs 40,000 crore for infrastructure development in Delhi, Gadkari said.
“Six months from now on, Modi will give a big gift to the people of Delhi by inaugurating several highways that will free the city from traffic jams and pollution,” the Union Road Transport and Highways minister was quoted as saying in a Delhi BJP statement.
“The expansion of NH-24 heading towards Meerut with an expenditure of Rs 6,000 crore will use the waste dumped at Ghazipur landfill site providing a big relief to the locals”, he said.
“The Modi government has also sanctioned thousands of crores of rupees for Dhaulakuan-Jaipur, Mukarba Chowk-Panipat roads, Dwarka Expressway and North-West corridor,” he said.
Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari praised the prime minister citing Dokalam issue, Triple Talaq and action against separatists in Kashmir.
“While the Modi government is not only ruling but also endeavouring for social transformation, the Kejriwal government in Delhi is indulging in scams whose fresh example is Mohalla Clinic,” Tiwari said.
