BENGALURU: Former Prime Minister and JDS chief HD Deve Gowda said that he was disappointment at not being invited for the inauguration of the country’s longest rail road bridge Bogibeel in Assam though he had laid the foundation stone of it. In 1997, the then Prime Minister Mr Gowda laid down the foundation stone for the project.
Railway lines to Kashmir, Delhi Metro and Bogibeel railroad bridge were among the projects I had sanctioned (as prime minister). I had sanctioned the budget of Rs 100 crore for each of these projects and laid their foundation stones. People have forgotten today,” Gowda said.”Some people from Bombay Karnataka region say that Deve Gowda did not do anything (for the north Karnataka region), go and see it,” he added.
