Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the newly named “Kartavya Path” today, which was earlier known as the Central Vista.
The stretch from the Rashtrapati Bhavan to the India Gate, with red rock walkways, revamped waterways, food slows down offering dishes of the various states, and distributing booths in the midst of broad plant life, represents a shift from Rajpath being a symbol of capacity to Kartavya Path being an illustration of public ownership and strengthening.
PM Modi will also unveil the statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose along with his pledge for new India to erase traces of the colonial era.
The Rajpath and its adjoining parts were witnessing heavy traffic of visitors for past many years.
Basic necessities were not being fulfilled like drinking water, adequate parking space, public toilets and street furniture.
Hence, a sufficient space was much needed for national level events to occur without any limitations on movement of public.
This development is aimed at solving all these problems ensuring smooth continuity of activities.
