Comparison of the two works.
Statue of Unity v/s Signature Bridge - Delhi.
Statue of unity is 182 metres built with an approx cost of 3000 crores whereas Signature Bridge is 152 metres built with an approx cost of 1,244 crores. Just 30 metres k difference ki cost double ho jaati hai.
Statue of unity is built on the land of farmers and villages that was economically and financially unsettling for the people living there on the other hand Signature Bridge was built because in 1998, 22 children died due to the inconvenience of the road.
Statue of Unity (to me) tallest statue in the world is not very eye-catching but Signature Bridge is quite unique and pretty and first ever cantilever spar cable stayed bridge in India.
Location of Statue of Unity is not that famous so the tourism of India might not satisfy with the income.
While Delhi is the capital and the bridge is useful for Indian roadways.
Statue of Unity is an overrated step took to paint the coming elections.
May be comparing these two doesn’t make sense at all but it just made me wonder, if a person want to use the money from Indian reserve, the tax money, basically could’ve used it effectively.
India is lagging behind and lacking in basic things and people are seeing this as “VIKAS”. Agar bhagwaana nahi chaahta k hum sawal uthaye to vo hame tark karne ki shakti nahi deta. Use it wise. Question what is happening. Raise questions and you might get a better environment.
