Addressing the people from Jan Vishwas Manch, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that good roads are necessary for the development of the country. He said America is rich because it has good roads. If the government is formed again in UP, roads worth five lakh crore will be built in the state in the next five years. During this, he also praised Union Minister Smriti Irani fiercely. He said that Smriti has done so much work in Amethi in five years that it has not done in the last 50 years. He described Atal Bihari Bajpai as an era man.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was speaking at a program organized at Navodaya Vidyalaya campus in Gauriganj, Amethi on Saturday. He began his speech with a discussion of Atal Bihari Bajpai. Said, Atal Yuga was a man. I am fortunate to have got his guidance. Gadkari said that he became a minister in the Maharashtra government at the age of 36. When the discussion of his works reached Atal, he called Delhi and asked him to make a plan to connect six lakh villages of India. For this a committee was formed under his leadership. The plan prepared by the committee was later renamed as Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana.
Under this scheme, so far five lakh villages have been connected with strong roads. Atal's ideology was nationalism, Antyodaya and good governance. Gadkari said that it is also my good fortune that I got a chance to sit on the same chair on which Atal was sitting in the party. Counting all the schemes related to his department in detail, Gadkari said that in the current BJP government, the distance of all the big cities of the country from Delhi has reduced. Today people from Delhi in three and a half hours reaching Lucknow, Haridwar in two hours, Chandigarh in two hours, Katra in six hours, Srinagar in eight hours and Mumbai in just 12 hours.
He said that his ministry has spent 20 thousand crore rupees on roads connecting other districts with Ayodhya. If the double engine government continues, roads worth Rs 5 lakh crore will be built in UP in the next five years.
Gadkari gave credit to Smriti Irani for the work done. He said that Smriti has done more work in five years than it has done in 50 years. Gadkari also mentioned fulfilling his promise in the form of Amethi bypass during the speech. People of Gandhi family will not understand Ram's Leela.
Union Minister Smriti Irani once again took a dig at Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi from the stage on Saturday. Said that people here have recognized those who pretend to be in relationships in Amethi. Now his pulse is not going to melt here. Smriti also told the crowd that gathered in Rahul's public meeting on December 18 that they belonged to other states.
Smriti Irani first thanked Nitin Gadkari for bringing the gift of development. Said that on his request, Gadkari got the Amethi bypass constructed. After this, Smriti, who reached the siblings directly, took a jibe at Rahul-Priyanka. Said that I can fight a girl, those who talk about the public meeting are gathering crowds from outside.
Smriti accused the Congressmen of pushing the people of Amethi in the public meeting. Said that you do politics but if you touch the people of Amethi then you will get the answer. He accused Rahul of insulting Hindu and Hindutva. Said that at the time of elections, those who claim to be Hindu are questioning their Hindutva, who are Ram bhakts by birth. Smriti said that the people of Gandhi family will not understand Ram's Leela.
