Environmental Touch in Building Quality Highways – Nitinji Gadkari

In preparation for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, a grand gathering was recently held in Latur by the esteemed Union Minister, Mr. Nitin Gadkari. It’s always a pleasure to listen to Mr. Gadkari, who has spearheaded the development of a network of high-quality highways across the country. A leader with Ajatshatru-like qualities, Mr. Gadkari has made historic achievements in road construction and is considered a stalwart in the field of development. His contributions have earned him the title of the ‘university of politics.’

Mr. Gadkari often shares innovative schemes and ideas in his speeches, advocating for initiatives such as hydrogen cars and ethanol farming, all with the sincere intention of ensuring the financial prosperity of every citizen.

During his tenure as the Public Works Minister of Maharashtra, Mr. Gadkari accelerated the construction of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, a project that gained momentum under his leadership. With his vision, he has overseen the completion of numerous flyovers and highways nationwide. Recognising his dedication, the former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, entrusted him with the monumental task of connecting over six lakh villages across the country with roads, a task that Mr. Gadkari accomplished successfully.

In his recent speech, Mr. Gadkari outlined several innovative schemes aimed at enhancing the prosperity of Latur district and boosting the agricultural output of the region. He reaffirmed his commitment to the development of Latur and announced plans to convert the long-awaited Latur-Barshi highway into a four-lane road. Additionally, he expressed his determination to expedite the Latur-Nanded railway project.

It is heartening to see Mr. Gadkari, whose leadership has revolutionized road infrastructure nationwide, demonstrating a special affection for our Latur district. Under his guidance, I am confident that the development initiatives in our district will witness rapid progress in the future.
