Thread on, Why #CentralVista was needed?

Do you know about our former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram lived with his wife in the house owned by his wife... And claimed its rent  from the govt every month for 10 years?

And the rental amount was 20 lakhs per month !! Image
Do you know why a new secretariat called 'VISTA' is being built in New Delhi at an estimated cost of 975 Crores?

Read on. There are 30 to 40  secretariats in New Delhi belonging to the various ministries. All of them are situated in rented accommodations.
The rental value of EACH Secretariat is a whopping 20-25 CRORES!! And most of these buildings are owned by either Congress leaders or Communist Comrades!! 

You can calculate the total rent of all these buildings which is regularly being paid to these 'owners', thus draining out

Hon'ble PM @narendramodi will inaugurate the new Parliament building on 28th May, 2023 on the occasion of 140th birth anniversary of Veer Savarkar Ji. The key part of the event is going to be the installation of the historic Sengol - a five foot long, golden sceptre topped with a
figure of Nandi Ji, the vahan of Bhagwan Shivji and a symbol of 'Nyaya', or the embodiment of justice and strength - next to the Lok Sabha Speaker's chair. Image

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

Adv Shikhil Suri: Rejoinder has been filed

SC: You argue the case

Suri: I saw the time

SC: it's fine the time is for us and not you
Adv Suri: The point of having no recreational play area is not legal

SC: you have to show how the modification is not permissible in law

Suri: we are saying it's not in public interest and no use in converting a green area into residential one

That there are so many of the old ecosystem who hate #NarendraModi is known. But let's dig deeper to understand their hate more. 1) Is it that there's no corruption? No, India still has corruption but corruption is not the one & only objective like before. Today projects must get
implemented, progress shown, work done which is a new expectation 2) Is it there is greater or lesser caste/religion divide? No, it's as it always was before. Today there's parity being brought in with equal emphasis on minority community to progress & develop. The ghetto
mentality is being broken slowly 3) Is it that relationship with Pakistan or China has dramatically worsened? No the same things like before have been happening but suddenly India & it's armed forces are being given freedom to stand up with dignity, honour & courage to fight back

#LokSabha begins discussion on #Constitution (127th Amendment) Bill.
Protests have subsided for the time being.

Dr. Virender Kumar, Minister of Social Justice speaks on the Bill, claims that states will have the right to notify OBC lists for their states.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary, INC on #Constitution (127th) Amendment Bill:

- Govt has majority, so doesn't listen

Chowdhary continues on Constitution #OBCreservation Bill:
- When states started protesting, people started protesting and with an eye on election, you brought this Bill now
- But we also demand that 50% ceiling be removed, approach SC, let states decide

#FactCheck of various "Propaganda Cartoons".

Inflation - Average 4.74% from 2014-2020, lowest in last 6 decades.

Unemployment - Yes, it increased because of Delhi - 45.6%, TN - 28%, Rajasthan - 27.6%.

GDP - India's GDP is low but performance under NDA is still better than UPA.
Supreme Court questioned Modi govt on Vaccine supply & differential pricing and its Ok. Point to be noted that it was States who asked for Decentralization of Vaccines. Supreme Court didn't ordered to Modi government to provide FREE Vaccines to States, but Modi did.
Several propaganda cartoons blaming Modi for Covid-19 situation floating around. 'Health' is States subject in India. fact remains, India has registered lowest Covid-19 De∆ths amongst major countries. De∆th rate in non-BJP States are highest, but entire blame is on Modi.

Parliament or PM's residence,it is not Modi's personal asset,its for any PM of India&the Parliament of India.Then why to oppose?Bcoz loss is going 2b at individual level&so its being opposed with full force.
#CentralVistaProject is loss of crores to 1 family-The Maino family
The new central vista,all Ministries of GOI will run in their own building. Currently,these ministries run in rented buildings all around Delhi whose yearly rent has to be paid by govt in crores. As you all can assume, who is the owner of majority of these building?

इस महामारी के समय में भी #CentralVistaProject हमें क्यों चाहिए ? यह बड़ा प्रश्न है और @narendramodi सरकार इसे रोक क्यों नहीं देती ? इसका उत्तर सबको जानना चाहिए क्योंकि इसे लेकर सोनिया गांधी और @RahulGandhi की अगुआई विशुद्ध झूठ बोला जा रहा है। क्या भारत की नई संसद मोदी का महल है
सबसे बड़ा झूठ यही फैलाया जा रहा है। प्रशासनिक कार्यों को बेहतर तरीक़े से करने के लिए @PMOIndia और उपराष्ट्रपति के आवास @rashtrapatibhvn के साथ ही बनेंगे। केंद्रीय सचिवालय के कर्मचारियों को आधुनिक सुविधायुक्त कार्यालय मिलेगा। अभी दिल्ली के बाहरी क्षेत्रों तक कर्मचारी बैठते हैं
भारत की संसद क़रीब १०० वर्ष पुरानी हो चुकी है। इसके स्थान पर नई संसद बनाने का प्रस्ताव @INCIndia शासनकाल में ही आया था। लोकसभा अध्यक्ष मीरा कुमार, सुमित्रा महाजन दोनों ने इसे आगे बढ़ाया। संसद को तय समय सीमा में स्वतंत्रता के ७५ वर्ष होने तक तैयार करने का लक्ष्य है #CentralVista

Let's take a look at all the instances cited in the letter one by one.


How Congress leaders, including Congress Chief Minister, ridiculed Indian-made-vaccine and created doubts in the minds of people, spurring #VaccineHesitancy

1. Fear mongering on vaccines, #COVAXIN, by #Chhattisgarh Health Minister TS Singh Deo

This continued through Feb'2021 too, when TS Deo Singh creating doubts over #Covaxin

2. Congress govt in #Punjab also refused to use COVAXIN & did not change their stance even when efficacy data came out! Here's Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu's remarks:

USA spent billions of dollars in the 1930's on infrastructure projects under the 'New Deal' policy of Franklin D. Roosevelt government to come out of the economic collapse that occurred due to the Great Depression. The result of that initiative was 20 million jobs!

China's economy skyrocketed since 1980's because they blindly poured money into the real estate sector and built new cities, skyscrapers, parks, stadiums, highways, railways, airports, seaports even when they did not really "need" them.

Fact is the #CentralVista residence will be smaller than the 10 bungalows the lok kalyan marg residence uses in terms of sqft.
Fact also is the shifting of residence has more to do with security recommendations than anything else.
That said propaganda walo ko kaun samjhaye.
Today the official residences are scattered all over #lutyensdelhi . By concentrating the PM , President & VP in a close area within easy reach of all govt offices & the parliament the #CentralVistaProject will reduce security & logistics cost manifold saving well over it's cost.
Apart from that most have no idea that the total project cost of the #CentralVista is divided over a decade with no more than $150mn or ₹1050cr being the outlay in 2021-22.
This project actually began a few years ago & is necessitated by earthquake & fire norms.
