Claim: यही वजह है कि जहां साल 2014 से पहले देश में एक दिन में सिर्फ 12 किलोमीटर हाईवे बनते थे, आज लगभग 27 किलोमीटर हाईवे का प्रतिदिन निर्माण हो रहा है: PM

(This is the reason why, where in 2014 the country’s construction rate was 12 km for highways per day it is almost 27 km per day)

Fact: False. Highways were built at a rate of 13.47 km per day between 2009-10 and 2013-14, which rose to 20.43 km per day between 2014 and November 2018.


Explanation: Under the United Progressive Alliance government’s second term, between 2009-10 and 2013-14, the average rate of highway construction was 13.47 km per day; this figure rose 52% to 20.43 km, according to this reply to the Rajya Sabha on December 17, 2018.
