Not much success has been achieved on road accidents – Nitin Gadkari
Nitin Gadkari said in the conference, the situation is such that people have no fear or respect for the law. If the red light is on, stop. One should not talk on the phone while driving a scooter or car. These are such small things. Sometimes I think we should expose our department to the media. Although good work is done on roads, we are not getting as much success in road accidents. The main reason for this is the road infrastructure. Our days are very bad. There are black spots. So our first priority was to correct our mistakes. So far we have spent 30-35 thousand crore rupees on road repair.
