Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari came down heavily on officers at the National Highway Authority of India program over the delay in finishing a project.
While inaugurating the authority’s building in New Delhi through video conferencing, the minister pulled up the officers as the building took 9 years to complete.
The video of Nitin Gadkari is going viral on social media, in which he is seen criticizing harshly the officers. The video is of the NHAI program, whose entire video was shared by Nitin Gadkari on his Twitter.
After 8 minutes and 4 seconds in the video, Nitin Gadkari started speaking and said that the photos of the officers who delayed the projects by creating unnecessary confusions should be hanged in the building.
Nitin Gadkari revealed that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has become a breeding ground for inefficient officials who are creating hurdles and referring every matter to committees. He added that the building project for which tender was awarded in 2011, took almost nine years to complete and saw seven NHAI chairmen and two governments pass by.
On the occasion, the Minister took to exposing how it took 10 years for the organization to complete the construction of a mere building.“Non-performing assets (NPAs) not worth doing even vermiculture are preserved here and being promoted… I feel ashamed at the attitude of such officials who are carrying such legacies.
