After Chinese co gets the contract for Delhi-Meerut RRTS Project, #BoycottChina Trends on Twitter
#BoycottChina trended on Twitter on Monday yet again after reports surfaced that the Delhi-Meerut RRTS project has been given to a Chinese company.
According to a media report, a Chinese construction major has been awarded the contract to build a 5.6-km underground stretch of the upcoming Delhi-Meerut RRTS project.
The underground stretch, between New Ashok Nagar and Sahibabad, will be built by the Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Company.
The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is executing the country’s first Regional Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) project, said, “All contracts are functional as of last month. Construction is in full swing on the 82-km-long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor to commission the project in time.”
On the other hand, on knowing that a Chinese firm has won the crucial rail project, netizens have been visibly angry with the new development and asked what happened to ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Vocal For Local’.
Many questioned the government's move and termed it as an insult to the sacrifices of our soldiers who lost their lives in the Galwan valley clash.
