The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader further stated that it is everyone’s goal at the centre to make the country’s villages happy and affluent. Gadkari made the remarks while speaking to a crowd during a foundation stone-laying ceremony for different development projects in Pakka Sarna village, Hanumangarh district.
He frequently quotes former US President John F. Kennedy, who said, “America’s roads are good, not because America is rich.” Because of its good highways, America is wealthy.” “I guarantee that by the end of 2024, Rajasthan’s roads will be on par with those of America. “Rajasthan would become a happy and affluent state as a result of these roads,” Gadkari stated.
He claimed that as governments changed, so should society.
“There should be freedom from hunger, poverty, and unemployment. Farmers should become millionaires by becoming food and energy providers, he continued, adding that the farms of the farmers should receive water, young people should be given jobs, the country’s imports should end, and exports should rise.
In the Setu Bandhan project, which has a total cost of Rs 2,050 crore, Gadkari laid the foundations for seven railway overbridges (ROBs) and six national highway projects.
Nihal Chand, Rahul Kaswan, and Narendra Kumar, all members of parliament, were also present.
