there will be no need of land
Gadkari told that our plan is that we can make a duct in which we can lay petroleum pipeline, IT fiber line, PVC pipe, electrical cable etc. There will be no need for any kind of land allocation in this. Our money will also be saved. Under PM Gati Shakti, we are working closely with all stakeholders like this. You can understand the duct that Gadkari has mentioned as a flat duct. Through this, many types of cables are taken from the first floor to the upper floor. This also allows air to pass and the atmosphere remains better on every floor.
internet will reach villages
He said that we are working on such a policy that if private people invest in the duct and it provides service to the concerned department then it can grow on PPP mode. He said that with the expansion of internet, the time has come that we have to take optic fiber cable up to 50 lakh km. We have to connect the villages. We are working in this direction.
The DMK MP asked another question to Gadkari. Maran said that recently I had gone from Ranipet to Chennai, the condition of the road was pathetic. The land has been given by the state government but the contractors are missing. For the past four years, the condition of the Chennai-Bengaluru highway is so bad that it takes more than 4 hours to cover a distance of 100 km. Sir, what is the process, how will you solve it? Why should the common man of Tamil Nadu suffer?
To this, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said that as far as the problem on the Chennai-Bengaluru Expressway is concerned, I had recently visited the site. The problem is not with my department. Permission is given for three months and after that fresh permission has to be taken. If mining is not allowed then how can the road be built. Land acquisition is a problem. There is no eco-forest clearance. Still the work of Bengaluru side expressway is good but in Tamil Nadu we don’t have land and clearance so how will the contractors work? My target is to complete it by December this year. With this, you will be able to reach Bangalore from Chennai in 2 hours. Soon from Bangalore to Mysore will reach in one hour.
