Construction of rural roads got new momentum: Modi

New Delhi, Aug 15 – Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the government has given a new momentum to the construction of roads in rural areas now built at the pace of 100 km per day.

In his Independence Day speech, Modi said the government’s flagship rural connectivity programme was introduced by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee but it it was implemented later at a slow speed.

Modi said his government had brought a new momentum to the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana to help accomplish the dream of villagers who want good roads.

Earlier village roads were constructed at the rate of 70-75 km per day. Now we construct 100 km in a day.
