Nitin Gadkari slams Rajdeep Sardesai at the India Today Conclave over ‘achche din’

At the Indian Today Conclave, Nitin Gadkari, the Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shipping and Water Resources sat down with Rajdeep Sardesai, notorious for his biased coverage of events, for a discussion on the politics of the country ahead of the 2019 general elections.

At one point during the chat, Rajdeep Sardesai asked Gadkari if the Prime Minister was willing to go to the people claiming ‘achche din’ had arrived during his campaign for the 2019 elections. And Gadkari, in his blistering form took Sardesai to the cleaners with his reply.

In his response to the question, the Minister began by clarifying that ‘Achche din’ never really comes if people choose to remain dissatisfied with their current state of affairs. However, he clarified that ‘Achche din’ mean ‘Roti, Kapra, Makaan’, that is, food, clothes and homes for everyone. He then went on to highlight the work being done by the government through the Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana that seeks to provide homes to the economically disadvantaged sections of the country. He also mentioned the irrigation facilities provided to farmers during the tenure of this government.

Nitin Gadkari also mentioned 16 lakh crores of investment in the Sagar Mala project and the 4 lakh crore worth of investment in the modernization of ports across the country. He also said that special economic zones were being developed with lakhs of crores of investment which would provide employment opportunities to hundreds and thousands of people across the country.

Finally, he said that the only problem is the media has to go into great detail to comprehend how the promise of ‘achche din’ was being fulfilled by the NDA government.
