NEW DELHI: Yesterday, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri inaugurated the ITO Skywalk in New Delhi. On the other hand, Mr. Puri also accused the Arvind Kejriwal-led government of stalling the ITO Skywalk project for one year.

Accusing the AAP government of creating hindrance in several projects, the minister said that the Delhi government even tried to stop Metro Phase-IV project as well. The hindrances were made in the form of “false narrative” which were being created around these projects and some people even tried to take the credit for the project who have nothing to do with it, he added.

The Union housing and urban affairs minister further alleged the party for not providing the 20 percent of the project cost which was to be provided from their side.

As per the reports, the ITO Crossing and ‘W’ Point Junction are the two busiest crossings in the city. In this area, there are more than 25 major offices and other institutions that are located and around 30,000 pedestrians cross various roads around ITO Crossing and ‘W’ Point. A cost of Rs 55 crore has been spent in order to construct the skywalk which has six lifts.

“When I became the minister in September 2017, I was told that the skywalk project, which was cleared in 2016, was still awaiting the Delhi government’s nod. We then decided to execute this project on our own,” Mr. Puri said.

After the denial of clearance of 20% of the amount regarding the project by the AAP government, the project has been executed with the funds provided by the Centre, said the Union housing and urban affairs ministry. The PWD of the Delhi government was an executing agency.

The Delhi government issued a statement saying, “No amount of tall claims and rhetoric will be able to mislead the people of Delhi, who will finally judge, whether cutting ribbons will be a substitute for hard work.”

“His objections were, however, overruled by Deputy Chief Minister and Finance Minister Manish Sisodia who headed the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC), which gave its approval for providing the Delhi government share of Rs. 12 crore for the skywalk project,” the statement said
