Union minister of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari is known for his good humour. Keeping up this trait, the Minister on Thursday revealed that he once ordered the demolition of his father-in-law’s home that too without telling his wife.
While speaking at an event in Haryana Nitin Gadkari shared the incident in a humorous manner. “I was newly married,” Gadkari said, cracking up about the incident. “My father-in-law’s house was in the middle of the road. Without telling my wife, I had ordered the demolition of my father-in-law’s house.” The minister added that officials informed him that he, too, has a house there and that it needed to be razed for constructing the road.
Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Gurugram Lok Sabha member Rao Inderjit Singh and senior officials of the state government, district administration, and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) were also present at the event.
