NEW DELHI: General Secretary of the CPM, Sitaram Yechury has called the government’s plans to continue the Central Vista project despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as “grotesque.”
Citing reports that the Center has granted the necessary environmental clearances for the remaining buildings in the project, Yechury questioned his timeliness.
“This is grotesque. There is no money for oxygen and vaccines while our brothers and sisters die waiting for a hospital bed to be cremated in parking lots, BUT Modi will waste public money to feed his megalomaniac vanity. Stop this crime,” he tweeted. . .
Opposition parties have criticized the government for the construction of the Vista Central project, with a new parliament building as the centerpiece during the coronavirus pandemic.
Work on the project has continued despite the second week of lockdown in the Capital which has stopped most of the construction work. The construction work on the project has been included in the scope of “essential services”, a measure that has been flayed by the opposition.
