Ready to host Republic Day parade of 2022 in Central Vista

Hardeep Singh, Puri Union minister, said that the Central Vista will be ready to host the next Republic Day parade in 2022.

He said the redevelopment of Central Vista Avenue, stretching from India Gate to Rashtrapati Bhavan, will be completed within the two-and-a-half-month.

News agency ANI quoted the minister as talking to a media house.

"We are ongoing work on Central Vista Avenue project. The next Republic Day parade on 26 January will be held on the new Central Vista building. We will make sure that the winter session of Parliament during 75th year of Independence day will be held in new Parliament building,"

The minister is speaking at the inauguration ceremony of two new multi-story office complexes at Africa Avenue and Kasturba Gandhi Marg for over 7,000 armed forces and the Defence Ministry employees.

Earlier the day, PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the two buildings where he slammed the critics of the Central Vista project for spreading "lies" and "misinformation."

"People who were after the Central Vista were very cleverly silent on the aspect that building a place for 7,000 armed forces and Defence Ministry employees is part of the central vista projects."

He said.

"Because they knew that the idea of spreading lies and misinformation would be exposed when this comes to the front,"

He said.

"But the country is seen today what we are doing under Central Vista project. The modern offices constructed at Africa Avenue and KG Marg will help in getting the work done related to defence effectively,"

The redevelopment of Central Vista envisages a new triangular Parliament building, a joint central secretariat, revamping the three-km-long Rajpath, from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate, a new prime minister's residence and PMO, and a new Vice President's Enclave.

PM Modi said.

"When we are focused on ease of doing business and ease of living, modern infrastructure plays an important role equally. This is the plan behind the work that is being done in the development of the Central Vista,"
