Chabahar Port Gateway to Opportunities: Gadkari
Keen on rolling out infrastructure projects in Iran and Afghanistan, Union minister Nitin Gadkari has said that once Chabahar Port in Iran becomes operational, there will be no looking back as it will be a gateway to golden opportunities. As a special envoy of India, Gadkari represented India at the oath taking ceremony of President Hassan Rouhani. “Talks are on for building railways and roads through Chabahar till Afghanistan and then we have access to Russia. Once Chabahar is operationalised, which we are hopeful to be in 12 to 18 months’ time, it will prove to be a gateway to golden opportunities to boost trade and business,” Gadkari told PTI.
