  • Prime Minister Modi addresses the Buddhist community at the IGI Stadium on the occasion of Buddha Purnima

GRAND FEAT: On May 27, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 135 km Eastern Peripheral Expressway at a function in Baghpat attended by top BJP leaders including Cabinet Minister Nitin Gadkari and UP CM Yogi Adityanath. It has been built in 500 days against a target of 910 days. Commercial traffic entering Delhi will be reduced by 30 per cent—i.e. 2 lakh vehicles per day, and pollution by 27 per cent. It has 100 per cent solar lighting, all weather concrete roads, 7 interchanges, 430 bridges, flyovers, RoBs, underpasses. There is a 2.5 m long cycle track all along on either side, 2.5 lakh trees alongside, 28 fountains, vertical gardens with drip irrigation, rest areas with washrooms, motels, petrol pumps, shops, restaurants, repair service points. It is a six-lane green and smart corridor, part of a larger one connecting east with west. It cost Rs 11,000 crore, the same amount both Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya have borrowed from Indian banks and are yet to return. One can see what India can achieve if money is used wisely
