New Delhi. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, terming Delhi’s bad roads, crumbling traffic system, the danger of walking on the roads and the tendency of people to often not follow the traffic rules, is extremely dangerous for the development of Delhi.

In a letter sent to Gadkari, CAT’s National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the way Gadkari has not only laid the road transport network across the country in such a short time, but also reduced the distances and reduced road accidents. All preventive measures have also been taken. In some cases even world records have been made.
Khandelwal said that in front of such vast experience and willpower, the matter of Delhi’s roads is very small, but every day more than 5 lakh people come to Delhi from other states, the number of big vehicles is increasing, and goods transport is also increasing. And most importantly, no work has ever been done on any plan made for the development of roads in all the three master plans of Delhi, that’s why Delhi is suffering from the terror of traffic. Construction of roads without any concrete plan, roads made of substandard material, frequent accidents etc. have made the life of the people of Delhi uncertain.
