Narendra Modi’s Blog - Lameduck Urbanization, Burj Towers for Poor Gujaratis
It amusing to horrifying how Narendra Modi fools people of India. In his blog he has Copied pictures of some Hundred Gulf Tower in the Drawings of Dolera SIR.
With per capita income of $1600 that too concentrated largely with few thousand families he sells dream of a ‘Burj Towers’ to 60 million Gujaratis. More than half of Gujarat is facing severe drought. There is not a word of it in any of his blogs.
1.] Under Utilized Highways: - In this recent blog we could see Shear Waste of Public Money – unlike Bangalore, Chennai which are similar size but roads are clogged with vehicles – there are 12 Lane BRT corridor that carry not even two lane traffic.
Elevated Highway passing through Ahemdabad City of 6 million – several kilometers long serve two buses and 2-3 cars.
2] Gujarat Rural Population As Par With Bihar: Assocham Study points to just Rs.606 crores monthly rural ‘Consumption Expenditure for Gujarat’ and in par capita terms is lower than Bihar for 4 out of 5 income levels.
RURAL MONTHLY DEMAND
BIHAR Rs.1219 crores, GUJARAT Rs.606 crore
3.] River Front Attracts Barely 200 Visitors: In this picture we could see barely 200 visitors – half of them are tourists. Except two motorized boats there is nothing special on offer.
But water released in the Sabarmati River could serve some districts that is wasted.
Kankarai Lake front have few visitors and recreational facilities.
4.] Just 10 New Autos for E-Auto Service: There are just 10 E-Autos with White Display on display on top in a State of 60 million can’t be great. We didn’t see them on highways within Ahemdabad city.
5.] Park With Cheap Jholas: Even the Jholas in its main city are cheap grade.
Shorter version without Narendra Modi is posted here but full version is available on some Yahoo Groups.
