Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole on Friday visited the newly inaugurated Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Seva Atal Setu, popularly known as Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, in Navi Mumbai and inspected cracks on the bridge, PTI reported. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Atal Setu, the longest sea bridge in the country, in January 2024.

Patole said all the accusations he had made so far against the Modi government had been legit. “This bridge is just around three months old. With all these cracks, it’s completely evident how it can be a risky situation for the commuters,” the Congress chief said in a video footage released by the news agency.

The government has been increasing taxes for development, but the reality is just a facade to cover up for their faults, Nana Patole told PTI.

Patole hit out at the central government, saying that the state acts as a bank for Amit Shah and the prime minister. “Make gains from Maharashtra, and sell in Gujarat,” Patole told PTI.

The Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri Nhava Sheva Atal Setu is India’s longest sea bridge, covering 21.8 km, out of which 16.5 km is over the sea.

“The inauguration of Atal Setu shows India’s infrastructural prowess and underscores the country’s trajectory towards a ‘Viksit Bharat’. This project employed around 17,000 labourers and 1,500 engineers while also creating employment opportunities in the transport and construction industries,” PM Modi had said while inaugurating the highway, according to a report by The Hindu.

While opening the bridge, PM Modi had taken a jibe at Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray. “Most of these projects were initiated when there was a double-engine government in the state. People had no hopes from the previous government which had the habit of delaying development projects for years and commissioning them at an even higher cost. In 2016, I had guaranteed the people that the country will move towards progress and here I am with the living proof,” the PM was quoted as saying in the The Hindu report.
