Keep infrastructure development away from politics: PM
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged to keep the development of infrastructure away from politics. He said that the country’s infrastructure should be a mission to benefit many generations, not 5 years of politics. If political parties have to compete, there should be competition in the quality of infrastructure, competition on speed and scale.
Prime Minister was speaking after flagging off the first train to run on the 351-km New Bhaupur-New Khurja section (both in Uttar Pradesh) of the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC). He also inaugurated the operation control centre for the EDFC at Prayagraj via videoconference.
