Highway construction during this government has been unprecedented. By 2007 the GQ and PC pjts will be done, not to mention the silent progress of the PMGSY that will revolutionize village economies. In his I-day speech, PM said:
In the first five decades of Independence, only 550 kilometers of four-lane highways were built. In other words, only 11 kilometers a year. Now, we will build 24,000 kilometers of highways at the rate of 11 kilometers a day.
The Rs. 54,000-crore National Highways Development Project is progressing rapidly. Three lakh people are working on it everyday. Next year, this number will go up to six lakh per day.
