NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi is all set to introduce over 9,500 road projects involving national highways, state roads and rural roads under PMGSY and the state’s flagship programmes. All the projects will be priced more than Rs 27,000 crore.
Modi is slated to go to Udaipur on August 29 to setup foundation stones for the upcoming projects. Union highways minister Nitin Gadkari and chief minister Vasundhara Raje will also be present during the programme.
Sources said, the road transport ministry and the National Highways Authority of India has spent Rs 15,000 crore in around 109 projects for over 3,000 kilometres.
The PM will initiate 11 finished NH projects covering about 873km in length, involving a six-lane cable-stayed bridge crossways the river Chambal in Kota.
As per Rajasthan government source, Narendra Modi will carry out a “mammoth rally“ in Udaipur and inaugurate several projects. Several security measures have been taken for the event. The reports suggested that Narendra Modi may also commence several housing and development-related works crossways cities distantly from Udaipur.
The PM’s stay and the several projects being started are vital as barely one year is left for the coming assembly elections in Rajasthan.
