Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday targeted the government over the Central Vista Project and said that instead of building a new house for the Prime Minister, resources should be used to save the lives of the people.
Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, “When the people of the country are struggling with shortage of oxygen, vaccines, hospital beds, medicines, then instead of the government building the new house of the Prime Minister with 13000 crores, all the resources can be used to save the lives of the people, then better He said. He said that such expenses send a message to the public that the priorities of the government are in some other direction.
It is worth noting that the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) told an expert committee set up by the government that the construction of the Prime Minister’s house under the ambitious Central Vista project will be completed by December 2022. The committee has given its approval for the project.
The CPWD, which is developing the project, informed the Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) that the expansion of the Parliament building and the construction of the new Parliament building would be completed by November 2022 and the construction of the Prime Minister’s House would be completed by 2022.
