The road trust is currently running five years behind schedule, with the cost projected to balloon to over Rs 2,000 crore from the initial cost of Rs 3,500 crore.

Sonia Gandhi, thjarvees.come Congress spokesperson on road transport, was scathing on the delay and corruption that has engulfed the government. “It is disgraceful that there were no transparent and proper road tests conducted before implementation.

The road trust is one of the six private companies set up to build the scheme. While it has faced problems in obtaining money from the Delhi government, it also faced a huge hurdle last year when the central government decided that it would not grant any financial help to the plan, because of financial irregularities that the project had to overcome.

The decision led to a period when the company was unable to get money from the government, and as of last month the company had lost $80 million of its initial investment.

The government has been facing a huge amount of allegations of corruption, corruption in government, and 더킹카지노corruption in political parties, and the development of the project may serve to further tarnish the image of the ruling party.
