  1. Built as many roads you can but doctors should be exempted from each and every toll as he is only person considered as GOD in our society.. And he is only person who rushes for another person without any grudge to save life.

  2. expressway ,higheay needed its already too late in our country to developing we need and reduce traffic and smooth journey expressway is necessary.bullete train is not necessary.need road development is must

  3. Alternate modes of transportation is very much required. However, make sure these roads are closed from both sides to ensure no person or animal cross the road as and when they please. Make sure there are crossings built over or under these roads. Under would be better bcos people are lazy and won’t use overhead walkway. Best to build S bridge where required to allow vehicles and animals to cross. Else you will end up digging the roads again to make these bridges.

  4. No doubt about this proposal to show our indebtedness and gratitude…but, the doctors are no God and unlike miracles done free of cost by the almighty, they charge too hefty fees to bleed their patients…
