Indian quantum leap and problems Muslims face!
(PM Modi launches Rs 50,800 crore Setu Bharatam project)
-Dr. Abdul Ruff
Ever since India embarked upon liberalization and disinvestment of public properties to favor corporate lords, development and targeting of Muslims went hand in hand.
Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Friday said India is set to take a quantum leap in infrastructure with an ambitious Rs 50,800-crore Setu Bharatam project, under which a total of 208 railway crossings will be replaced by rail over bridges (ROBs) by 2019. Modi was inaugurating the mega project in New Delhi and said the government is committed to strengthening the infrastructure.
As part of the project, 1,500 bridges of the British era will be overhauled at an estimated expenditure of Rs. 30,000 crore. “Altogether, these ROBs and bridges are planned to be completed by 2019 at an estimated cost of Rs. 50,800 crore,” Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said on the occasion.
The Road Transport and Highways ministry has already launched an Indian Bridge Management System to map 1, 50,000 bridges across the country.
Till now, an inventory of 50,000 bridges has been prepared while the first cycle of condition survey will be completed by June this year. Speaking on the occasion Road Transport & Highways and Shipping Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari informed that the Setu Bharatam programme aims to make all National Highways free of railway level crossings by 2019. This is being done to prevent the frequent accidents and loss of lives at level crossings.
The Minister informed that 208 Railway Over-Bridges (ROB)/Railway Under Bridges (RUB) will be built at the level crossings at a cost of Rs. 20,800 crore as part of the programme. The details of 208 ROBs are as follows:
Andhra Pradesh – 33, Assam – 12, Bihar – 20, Chattisgarh – 5, Gujarat – 8, Haryana – 10, Himachal Pradesh – 5, Jharkhand – 11, Karnataka – 17, Kerala – 4, Madhya Pradesh -6, Maharashtra – 12, Odisha – 4, Punjab – 10, Rajasthan – 9, Tamil Nadu – 9, Utarakhand – 2, Uttar Pradesh – 9, West Bengal – 22.
However, one India fanatic issue needs mention here. While Indian regime has been liberal in releasing huge funds for quantum leap in order to shine inordinately and bribing the international mafias operating in world capitals huge money for pursuing the so-called national interest, including joint cricket exercises to make India look a big power that contain freedom movement in Kashmir, one fails to comprehend Indian mindset in not releasing to Indian Muslims, who have no influence, the promised money, including pension, for their services to the government organizations.
In this respect as well, Modi government is behaving like the Sonia-Manmohan regime. Bonded by secret nexus through RSS, BJP is in fact the Congress B so far as Indian Muslims are concerned. No country can make real progress unless the minority interests are taken care of. By harming the Muslims and ignoring their genuine concerns the government of India indeed commits a serious crime against humanity.
Modi government should stop being insensitive to Muslim concerns and respond to the real national responsibility. Fanaticism alone won’t work in the long term!
