Country needs bridges, schools and hospitals, not temples
Our Correspondent / New Delhi
Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday inaugurated splendid Signature Bridge on river Yamuna. He said that structure will attract domestic, international tourists
On the occasion the Delhi chief minister attacked the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the country needs bridges, schools and hospitals, not temples and statues for progress.
“If Nehru had chosen to build temples and statues instead of institutions like BHEL and SAIL, then the country would not have progressed. The country would languish in the 15th century if temples and mosques are given preferences over science, technology and research,” Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia said that the bridge will be a centre of attraction among local and international tourists who come to Delhi to visit historical monuments and buildings like India Gate and Qutub Minar.
The bridge will be a big relief to a huge number of commuters, who would earlier be stuck up in long traffic jams over a narrow bridge in Wazirabad area.
