  • I want FDI ! I want FDI in

    I want FDI !

    I want FDI in making indian roads, bcs none of the government departments and engineers are capable to make a road which can last for 2-3 years. Here we need some hi tech foreign technology from the indian labours who are going to gulf countries and making roads. In FDI at least the company will be accountable for the quality of roads and the toll tax they will be collecting to maintain and build roads. Comparing to the toll tax collected by ministers company even after the the toll period is expired.
    FDI will kill as per some people thin, but to get killed we need to be alive now the Indian roads are killing.
    I feel shame when i drive on roads and see the leveling of the road is passed by an goverment engineer which we can easily reject with naked eyes.

    Need FDi in making roads, garbage recycle. Not for selling farm vegetables in a supermarket.
