Scrapping of North South Corridor road project: Surjewala comes down heavily on BJP rule



Chandigarh,
31 March, 2019

Coming down heavily on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for allegedly attempting to cancel the North South Corridor road project, Congress Core Committee member and senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala has strongly opposed the said move and described it as an exposure of the true anti-people face of the BJP government .

In a press statement issued here on Sunday, Surjewala said that the Congress government had approved a multi-dimensional North South Corridor road plan to connect the north and south parts of Haryana in December, 2010, but the statement of BJP MP from Bhiwani has proven the ill designs of BJP government to cancel this scheme.

He said, "The Congress party will not tolerate this anti Haryana step and injustice to the people of the state. The step will be opposed by tooth and nail with the active involvement of the people of the state."

Surjewala further stated that the work on the scheme was also started in the Congress government, but in the last five years, the BJP government in Haryana put that on hold by not taking much interest.

"It is shocking to note that the Khattar government has tried to sabotage this important scheme, which is beneficial to the entire state of Haryana", he said.

Citing the scrapping of many ongoing projects like Dadupur Nalvi Canal project and Manesar - Bawal Industrial Area projects, Surjewala said that no new big ticket project was started in the state in the entire five years of Khattar government, but the ongoing projects were either canceled or put on hold for various flimsy reasons.

Underlining the importance of roads in development, Surjewala said that the road and communication connectivity with big cities, markets and industrial centers is important for developing the areas, but the intent of the present government seems to be otherwise. The faster connectivity brings industries, jobs and investment but the government’s focus is not on governance and development of the state.

He said, "The Congress will not allow the government to succeed in its ulterior motives of scraping the North-South Corridor and will force Khattar - Modi governments to reverse its anti-people plans."
