Re: Indian Roads Thread

The higher cost is due to it being built on sea-bed. Cannot be compared to regular expressway.

Re: Internal Security Watch

32.9 million applications have been received for NRC update. In my estimate that is short by at least 1-1.5 million. So these people have either returned to Bdesh or disappeared to other parts of India. The statements by CM and state FM are to pressurize illegals to return by themselves. If correctl...
