KARENG CHAPORI,

PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said his Government has changed the “dilly-dallying” work culture regarding implementation of development projects.  Addressing a rally here after inaugurating the country’s longest rail-cum-road bridge, at Bogibeel in Assam, he said
completion of projects within a given time frame is no longer confined to paper but has become a reality.  “We have changed the earlier ‘latkane bhatkane’ (dilly-dallying) work culture... Completion of projects within a time frame is no longer confined to paper but has become a truth in the real sense,” he said in a apparent dig at the previous Congress-led UPA Government.


If Vajpayee had a second term, Bogibeel Bridge would have been ready by 2008-09. After his Government, no attention was paid to the project till 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.


“Today, on Good Governance Day, which is the birth anniversary of Atal (Bihari Vajpayee) ji, I can say with pride that we have completely changed that ‘latkane-bhatkane’ (dilly-dallying) work culture,” he said in an apparent dig at the Congress-led UPA dispensation. Modi said around 5,500 km of national highways were being constructed in the northeast for Rs 70,000 crore, while work on around 2,500 km have been completed.
