Amaravathi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the newly named Kartavyapath in the national capital on Thursday evening. Prime Minister Modi unveiled the statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, which was first installed near the India Gate. Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a 28 feet high, 6 feet wide statue of Netaji carved out of 300 tons of granite at part of India Gate in the Central Vista project. The statue was designed under the guidance of renowned artist Arun Yogiraj. Netaji’s statue has joined the tallest monolithic statues in the country.
The route from Netaji statue at India Gate to Rastrapati Bhavan will henceforth be called Kartavyapath.
Kartavyapath was developed as part of the Central Vista project with new Parliament and Central Government offices. Prime Minister Modi emphasized in his Independence Day speech that the colonial policies, names and symbols will be abolished, but the central government has taken up the name change as a part of it. It was called Kings Way during the British period but after independence it was renamed as Rajpath. From today it has become Kartavyapath.
