Bundelkhand expressway

Bundelkhand Expressway has collapsed at many places amid heavy rain. The craters on the road almost led to few major accidents.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Bundelkhand Expressway in UP on 16 July. But due to heavy rains, large craters have come up on the new expressway within 5 days, reports said. Bundelkhand Expressway was built after shedding around Rs 14,850 crore. However, the reality of that expressway has came to the fore within a few days. The Bundelkhand Expressway has collapsed at many places amid heavy rain yesterday evening. The craters on the road almost led to few major accidents, reports said.

The Expressway has been made to give a new identity to Bundelkhand. This expressway starts from Bharatkup in Chitrakoot and is found at Kudrel in Etawah.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav taunted the Modi government over the poor condition of the road. The UP’s leader of opposition wrote in Hindi: “This is a sample of the quality of BJP’s half-hearted development… On the other hand, the Bundelkhand Expressway was inaugurated by the big people that within a week, big pits of corruption came out on it. It is good that the runway was not built on this.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Bundelkhand Expressway with publicity on July 16. After the inauguration of Expressway, it was opened for commercial and domestic vehicles. It has not even been five days since the start of the expressway that all the claims have been exposed. On the occasion of the inauguration of the expressway, PM Modi had said that: “The distance from Chitrakoot to Delhi by Bundelkhand Expressway has been reduced by 3-4 hours, but its benefit is more than that. This expressway will not only give speed to the vehicles here, but it will also accelerate the industrial progress of the entire Bundelkhand.”
