Now, Modi Inaugurates A Jumla Expressway- Only 9 Kms Out Of 96 Kms Constructed
Ministers tried to pass it off as a complete expressway but their lies were called out by the public.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday inaugurated the Eastern Peripheral Expressway. However, many individuals expressed surprise as only 9 kilometres out of 96 kilometres of the expressway was constructed and wondered if it was just another photo-op.
Modi travelled in an open SUV, waived at the gathered audience and made a 50-minute speech hitting out at the Opposition and praising his government. He even claimed that the expressway was built in a record 500 days against 910 days time.
Here are the reactions post-Modi’s inauguration event:
9 kms of 96 kms completed only? That’s less than 10 per cent and he has gone on to inaugurate it by doing a roadshow on 6 of those 9 kms.
What is this? Expressway or rural electrification?

PM Modi has inaugurated 9 km of Delhi-Meerut expressway today. Considering that the total length of the expressway will be 96 km, he can inaugurate it upto 9 more times.

Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore also tweeted about the inauguration, calling it “a fitting symbol of the infrastructure of New India”. Twitterati called out his bluff too.
PM @narendramodi ji will dedicate Delhi-Meerut expressway to the nation today. This 14-lane highway will reduce the travel time between the two cities to ONLY 45 minutes! It is a fitting symbol of the infrastructure of #NewIndia #VikasKaHighway pic.twitter.com/G5GzikvjjR

Sir please correct the facts. PM is inaugurating only 9 kms of Delhi-UP border stretch, not Delhi-Meerut expressway. This is Ph-1 of expressway. Ph-2 is border to Dasna. Ph-3 is Dasna to Hapur. Ph-4 is Hapur Meerut.
BTW, who inuagurates 9 kms of an expressway?

Delhi-Meerut Expressway was a long standing demand of people of Delhi reeling under heavy pollution & congestion. It was #SaafNiyat of the PM @narendramodi govt that ensured that the work gets completed much before the set time. Here is a glimpse of the #NewIndia infra: pic.twitter.com/Z4PiGTFoyL
