Central Vista project a criminal wastage, says Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday slammed the Centre over the Central Vista project, a redevelopment project to construct a new Parliament and a common central secretariat. Terming the project as "criminal wastage," Gandhi wrote, "Put people's lives at the centre- not your blind arrogance to get a new house!" on Twitter.

Over the last year, Gandhi and the Congress have been asking the government to shelve its plans on the Central Vista project and give priority to improving medical infrastructure as the country reels under the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Cases have spiked to unprecedented levels in the country, while the healthcare system has been burdened to the breaking point.

Earlier this week, the environment ministry's expert appraisal committee (EAC) granted the necessary clearance for the Central Vista project. The project has been designated as an "essential service", hence getting exemption from the lockdown restrictions in the national capital which is severely hit by the pandemic.

According to the CPWD's submission to the ministry, the work on the new Parliament has been scheduled to be completed by November 2022, the vice-president's enclave by May 2022, and the PM's residence and the SPG building by December 2022.
