7Better Road Connectivity:
Before the Bhartiya Janta Party was sworn into power, they had made three ambitious promises on their manifesto. They promised that they would connect tribal hamlets with all-weather roads, improve village road infrastructure and connect the ports. The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna was launched to improve the quality of the village roads. INR 19,000 crore was pumped into the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna which had fallen to a measly INR 9,000 crore during the Congress-led UPA government times. The time taken to complete a project has fallen in leaps and bounds as well since the UPA government. During the UPA II’s final fiscal year of 2013-14, it used to take 474 days to complete a project. Under the BJP government, this time has fallen by an astounding 74% to only 124 days. Even under the Modi government, the time taken to complete a project has been decreasing year on year which now stands at 124 days from 374 days in 2014-15.
