Heavy Criticism by Varun Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav
“If the expressway built at a cost of ₹15,000 crore cannot withstand even five days of rain, then serious questions rise on its quality,” Varun Gandhi wrote. “The head of the project, the engineer concerned and responsible companies should be summoned and action be taken against them,” he added.
“This is a sample of the quality of the BJP’s half-finished development. The Bundelkhand expressway was inaugurated by big people and within a week huge pits of corruption came out on it. It is good that the runway was not built on it,” Akhilesh tweeted along with a media video. “At least, no runway was built on it,” Akhilesh added. “The caving-in of the Bundelkhand expressway just days after its inauguration proves corruption of the double engine BJP government in the construction of the road. The CM should apologie for endangering lives of people by inaugurating half-finished Bundelkhand expressway,” Yadav said in a tweet with a video of potholes.
