Gadkari praised the Yogi Adityanath-led government for its steps taken for all round development, saying that it was possible because of strong connectivity. “The image of UP is changing and continuously the state is developing. With more roads, the opportunities of employment and industry will be created. We are working towards developing the undeveloped areas,” he said, adding that there wouldn’t be any shortage of funds and the work would be completed timely.
Speaking at the inauguration and foundation laying ceremony of 16 national highways in UP through video conference, Yogi hailed union road transport minister Nitin Gadkari and his deputy Gen VK Singh for putting in continuous effort for the development for construction of national highways in the country. On Thursday, the union minister dedicated Rs 7477 crore projects for constructing 505km long roads.
Yogi recalled how in 2014 PM Narendra Modi gave the responsibility of developing infrastructure of the country to Gadkari.
