Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari said on Tuesday that the BJP will reap benefits of Centre’s demonetisation move in the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.
In an exclusive interview with News Nation's Meetu Jain, Gadkari said that he has full faith in the note ban exercise and it will surely bring ‘achche din’ in coming days.
During the interview, Gadkari also rubbished allegations that about 50 planes were used in his daughter’s wedding.
Gadkari said that his ministry cleared several stalled road and highway construction projects during his tenure as the Union minister.
