Listen to the news
The Delhi High Court has ruled a petition filed against the moratorium on the Central Vista project in the Corona era. The High Court reprimanded the petitioner and said that the construction work cannot be stopped. The High Court has also imposed a penalty of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner, dismissing the application for a stay on the Central Vista project. The court said that this petition seems politically motivated. The Court held that Central Vista is an important, necessary national project.

In fact, in view of the second wave of Corona, the opposition parties attacked the central government. The opposition demanded the government to stop the construction work during the Corona period, but the construction work was not stopped. The petitioners then petitioned the country’s Supreme Court for a stay, but the Supreme Court ordered to go to the Delhi High Court. In court, the petitioner filed a petition to stop the corona epidemic on the ground.
Hearing the petition, the High Court refused to stay the construction of the project. The court said that it is a very important project related to national importance. Let me tell you that Congress MP Rahul Gandhi also took a sharp attack on the center regarding this project. Rahul Gandhi had tweeted that keep the lives of the people at the center, not your blind arrogance to get a new house
What is Central Vista Project
A new Parliament building and new residential complex will be constructed under the Central Vista project. It has several new office buildings along with the residence of the Prime Minister and the Vice President, and the Central Secretariat to be built for the offices of the Ministry. The Central Vista project was announced in September 2019. The foundation stone of the project was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 10 December 2020. Construction of a new parliament building is proposed in this redevelopment project.
Apart from this, a Central Secretariat will also be constructed. Along with this, a change of three kilometers long ‘Rajpath’ from India Gate to Rashtrapati Bhavan is also proposed. The North and South blocks in the Central Vista area will be converted into museums and new buildings will be built in their place. Apart from this, it is also proposed to relocate the ‘Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts’ located in this area. Offices for various ministries and their departments will be created in this area.
