Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik Stalling Rs 9,000 Crore Digha-Gopalpur Coastal Highway Project, Says Dharmendra Pradhan

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has accused Odisha Chief Minister (CM) Naveen Pattnaik of stalling the Rs 9,000 crore, 415 km-long Digha-Gopalpur Coastal Highway project in the state to prevent Prime Minister (PM) Modi from getting the credit for it.

“The Odisha government has been adopting delaying tactics and has not been forthcoming in extending the requisite clearances related to forest and costal regulation zones,” the minister said, as reported by PTI.

“Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is scuttling the development of the state, by creating obstacles in starting this 415-km coastal highway project, which will be a game changer for overall development of the state,” he added.

The minister went on to describe the project as the ‘grandest ever’ undertaken in the coastal state. Read More
