Here's What Nitin Gadkari Said

Addressing a gathering in Hoshiarpur, Gadkari, who was accompanied by almost all the top leaders of the state BJP, said that the BJP-led NDA government was building expressways and green expressways which were helping shortening the distances between places.

He held that five green-field expressways and economic corridors were also being built at a cost of over Rs 1 lakh crore between Punjab to Delhi, and Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir.

Gadkari held that once the 670-km Delhi-Amritsar-Katra greenfield expressway project was complete, the motorists could reach Amritsar from Delhi in four hours and Katra in six hours. He further said that the implementation of these projects would substantially improve the infrastructure in the state which would lead to overall economic development and quality of life of the population.
