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.
The coming delimitation of constituencies in 2025 will see the number of MP constituencies increase to ~1000 the new parliament is necessary to build space for that many MPs . This will also entail demolition of existing MP bungalows to build apartments for MPs .
The current PM residence uses ten bungalows on lok kalyan marg with the entire road blocked off .
This includes bungalows uses for the PMO & SPG offices there .
In the new setup all of these is shifted into a dedicated office Building with the residence being reduced one house
Also many seem to equate the cost of #CentralVistaProject to #COVID19India relief efforts. Fact is #India is spending ₹300,000cr on health this year the actual outlay this year on #CentralVista is ₹1050cr .
The ₹35000cr for #vaccines is separate.
Another mistake is thinking that somehow throwing more money at #vaccines would get us as much #vaccine as we need. Its not a money problem , if it were then #XiJinping would've thrown $2Tr on vaccines & gifted them globally becoming a hero in the process , ditto with Biden .
Like I've said earlier more than ₹300,000cr already being spent on all of that . In fact we can't even use all of that money yet because there's little more to buy globally.
#CentralVista is a #poverty alleviation program as well for the thousands of workers involved in it from beginning to completion.
It pays for their salaries & well being while adding much needed #infrastructure to #Delhi .
You have the correct idea . Many #lutyensdelhi worthies also earn rent in crores from property leased to the govt .The monetary losses for them is also why this canard has been floated.
You are free to stand & win election or join the IAS via any competitive exam, you'll get to work in the Area.
The #CentralVista is being built for the govt of #India & all who work in it. Not any one individual.
My wife & mother in law have both got covid. MIL remains in hospital as on date. At least 12 others infected in the family.
That said I do not see any reason to oppose something just for the sake of propaganda & hatred against one party as you do.
Also one more small detail . The PM residence being built as part of #CentralVista will only be occupied for the first time by the candidate who wins in 2024 & is then appointed PM.
While I believe that will be #NarendraModi , only time will tell who becomes the first occupant .
In time the Janpath Area will also be put into redevelopment to fit requirement.
I've already said the #CentralVista PM residence will be smaller than the Lok Kalyan Marg residence he has today .
It is worth noting that the #Gandhi family including Shri @RahulGandhi occupy a larger piece of real estate at 10JP than 7LKM in #Delhi .

Dear @PMOIndia @MoHFW_INDIA #India is now manufacturing between 80-100Mn doses of #vaccine monthly or some 3Mn daily.
Would request to see if at least 30Mn-40Mn can be preferntially allotted to the 10 biggest cities by end May.
Will bring down positivity & caseload massively.
I've left 70Mn doses for all the other regions . Also consider that the majority of cases are concentrated in cities by simply vaccinating at least 50% of top ten cities we can control the number of cases quickly .
If we want to win this optics will have to be put aside .

Question is what would #India spend on?
Did we have a successful vaccine ready prior to December 2020?
Answer is no.
The #USA gambled $16Bn on 7 vaccines in June 2020 . 3 succeeded, one in trials & 3 failed.
The #USA essentially lost $6-7Bn in the gamble.
Acceptable odds for us?
You make the mistake of thinking BB was successful in the first try . Dr Krishna Ella tried & rejected two prior vaccine designs before settling on Covaxin . Also covaxin needs BSL4 & BSL3 facilities so cannot be made everywhere.
Also other older facilities are being upgraded to BSL3/4 for Covaxin but these will come online in a few months from now , not before. Haffkine in Mumbai should produce Covaxin from December 2021, a facility in Odisha from June 2022 .

Massive: official #UAE govt handle talks of giving missiles to the #Baloch to I quote " defend themselves" .
This can get very interesting very fast .
@mystiquememoir @KesariDhwaj @desertfox61I @cvkrishnan @rathorekaran17
They're the same arming either side is arming them both .
Two strategic connotations here
1) Involvement of #SaudiArabia as the maternal cousins of the #UAE rulers . This will help them against #Iran & #Pakistan both .
2) Any #Baloch state would sit astride the Persian Gulf & presumably be a factor in all shipping through it .

Rather useless & farcical theory there. Fact is the govt has no more storage than the 50Mn odd tonnes it buys .
The total #food grain production of #India ~300Mn tonnes .The balance was always sold at market rates to primarily large corporations like @ITCCorpCom & @Cargill .
Also as far as the PDS procurement is concerned Data shows that the average quantum distributed through the system is some 10.7Mn tonnes per annum.
Where does the rest of the ~40Mn tonnes go ?
Well it rots & is generally sold off as animal feed & for conversion to alcohol.
The price control she talks of here only exists because most of the foodgrains are sold at below #MSP . If all food in #India was procured at MSP it would be unaffordable for most citizens .

Opportunity for the #IndianNavy to pick up 3 Whidbey class LPDs, would fit right in with the Jalashwa & help develop HADR & Amphibious capability.
The Nimitz built in 1972 is too old .
@vgmenon99 @shekharmital
@rajeshsarrin @rickky65 @srikantkesnur
Sirs, your thoughts🙏🏼
Better than not having any !
For the record the INS Jalashwa started life as the USS Trenton in 1971 , will serve the #IndianNavy for another decade at least .
At least 3 Whidbey class vessels Rushmore, Ashland & Tortuga were commissioned post 1990 .
The above again should be dependent on price , anything above $30Mn for each & it'll be better to get new built Tarlac/Moattama/Makassar class LPDs from #SouthKorea . These 11000Ton ships come at ~$60-70Mn each .

To believe that aliens didn't exist would be as absurd as believing that in a field sown with wheat only one stalk would grow.
Most science indicates the opposite .
Do google Drake Equation.
