“Infrastructure sector is all about building assets for the country. It is part of nation building”
The person charged with improving and building infrastructural assets for India is none other than Mr Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, and Shipping. He has had the unenviable task of ushering in a sea and visible change in India’s infrastructural capabilities at all levels—surface, river and ports. India’s growth and development into an infrastructural superpower hinges on vital decision-making that is going on at the highest levels of the NDA Government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr Gadkari responded to our questions on a number of key segments like the Bharatmala Pariyojana—an umbrella programme for the highways sector that aims to optimize the efficiency of road traffic movement across the country by bridging critical infrastructure gaps, the Peripheral Expressways in the NCR and the ones from Ahmedabad to Vadodara, Mumbai to Pune, Ahmedabad to Pune, and Bengaluru to Chennai, Namami Gange—a Mission Mode initiative of the Government, National Mission for Clean Ganga, Sagarmala and Unnati projects, and expansion of ports among others.
We have strong segments on Cuba, diaspora, and business and governance. There’s also an event coverage that’s exhaustive.
