PM Modi urges citizens to visit revamped Kartavya Path in New Delhi
Kartavya Path Inauguration: PM Modi unveiled revamped Kartavya Path on Thursday evening in New Delhi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the much-awaited, revamped Kartavya Path - a stretch from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate today at 7 pm amid tight security. The redeveloped path is a part of the ambitious Central Vista Project by the Centre.
PM Modi also unveiled a grand statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose near India Gate. The Culture Ministry informed that a team of sculptors spent 26,000 man-hours of "intense artistic endeavour" to carve a grand statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
The statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose will be installed in the same place where a hologram statue of Netaji was unveiled earlier this year on Parakram Diwas by PM Modi to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji.
