The central vista project has been PM Modi’s one of the most ambitious projects and has been very serious on the development of the construction of the various sites. Recently after his US visit, the PM visited the construction site of the new parliament building, which will be one of the most giant construction in the array of other structures in the project.
PM Supervised The Construction Site
Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the construction site of the new Parliament building in New Delhi on Sunday evening and spent almost an hour at the site, inspecting the ongoing constructions. Well, to reminisce that this project is one of the most criticised projects of the Mofi government.
The new Parliament building is expected to be completed by November 2022, just in time for the Winter Session next year, officials have projected. Along with this, Central Vista avenue is also being redeveloped and is expected to be completed just in time for the G-20 summit for world leaders.
A Whopping Sum Invested In The Parliament Building
The new Parliament building is expected to cost around Rs.971 crore, and till the beginning of August a total of Rs.238 crore has been spent on it, the Union government told Parliament during the monsoon session. The Central Vista revamp is expected to cost around Rs.608 crore, with ₹301 crore being spent till August.
The construction proposal expects the construction of the Vice president’s residence and the Parliament building .The Prime Minister’s visit comes a week after he inaugurated the defence office complexes of the Central Vista project at Kasturba Gandhi Marg and Africa Avenue that will together accommodate more than 7,000 defence officials, on September 16.
This project was flagged off by the Modi government citing future aspirations and development in the future politics of Indian democracy. A project which was introduced amid the global pandemic did face the heat from critics and other pundits, however Modi lashed out at all criticism by pointing at other defence offices to be constructed in the vista dome project.
