Replying to a question asked by
Rajat Sharma, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, India TV, vehicular pollution, Gadkari said, "Delhi's pollution is down by 27% because of new peripheral roads because of which trucks do not have to go through Delhi."

"In aviation, we are trying to make airplanes in India. Around 100 airports will come up in the next 15 years with the investment of 65 billion dollars. I am preparing a
vision for aviation for 2035 to make it globally competitive and the leading industry of the country. All these transformative measures are going to help India grow," he said.
