<p>Kharge said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should examine his own behavior before constantly harping on the corruption of his political rivals by citing a Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India report on the “Bharatmala Pariyojana” highway projects.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Kharge said on X, previously Twitter, using the CAG report that “BJP’s corruption and loot is (are) taking the nation on a highway to hell.”</p>
<p> </p>
<p>‘Bharatmala Pariyojana’ is being developed with “innumerable deficiencies, non-compliance with outcome parameters, clear violation of tender bidding process, and enormous funding mismanagement,” he said in a blistering complaint against the Modi administration.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Dwarka Expressway, he said, is one of the glaring instances of the “fraud” in this plan.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>According to Kharge, the CAG revealed that the project’s cost “was initially estimated at Rs 528.8 crore but later zoomed to Rs 7,287.2 crore — a whopping 1,278% increase.”</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“Without a thorough project study, the Dwarka Expressway was evaluated and authorized. The proposed toll rates would make it more difficult to recoup the project’s construction costs and place an excessive financial burden on passengers, he said.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Congress leader also said, citing the study, that the Dwarka Expressway’s lane designs were chosen without considering the growth of neighboring rival infrastructure and that the construction was carried out to less-than-ideal standards.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“Pradhan Mantri ji, you need to examine yourself before you complain endlessly about corruption in the lives of your rivals, since you are the one in charge of it. India will hold your administration responsible in 2024, according to Kharge.</p>
