Delhi's 1.3-km long Pragati Maidan tunnel, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2022 before the G20 Summit has turned out to be fatal for commuters, as per media reports. This Pragati Maidan tunnel built at a cost of around 920 crore was closed for over a month during the monsoon season last year because of water seepage and waterlogging. Delhi PWD sent a show cause notice to Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on February 3 to deposit a "minimum token amount of 500 crore" and to start repair work.
