PM Modi launches several projects in Tamil Nadu

AMN / CHENNAI

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated and laid foundation stones of several development projects at Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu through video-conferencing on Sunday.

Mr Modi commissioned the 10-km stretch of the Chennai Metro rail which connects DMS and Washermanpet and also completes the 45-km long Metro rail first phase in the state capital.

The Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone for a 100-bedded ESIC hospital, besides inaugurating a 470-bedded modern ESIC hospital in Chennai.

He also launched the modernisation and expansion works of Chennai and Trichy airport terminals.

The Bharat Petroleum and Chennai Petroleum, BCPL’s Ennore Coastal Terminal and the new crude oil pipeline from Chennai Port to its refinery at Manali in north Chennai were also commissioned.

Earlier, during his visit to Andhra Pradesh, the Prime Minister dedicated to the nation the 1.33 million metric ton capacity Visakhapatnam Strategic Petroleum Reserve facility at Guntur. He also inaugurated Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited’s Vashishta and S1 development project located in the Krishna-Godavari Offshore Basin. Mr Modi also laid the foundation stone for setting up of a new terminal of BPCL at Krishnapatnam.

Addressing the gathering in Guntur, Mr Modi said the project is not only important for Andhra Pradesh but for the entire nation to meet its energy needs. He said, these projects will create huge job opportunities.

Slamming the Opposition, the Prime Minister said, parties which left the people to live in smoke are now spreading smoke of lies. He also criticised Chief Minister and TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu, saying he has made a U-turn on promises of development by not using central funds in an appropriate way.

Later today, the Prime Minister will visit Karnataka, where he will lay the foundation stone of Indian Institute of Technology – Dharwad and Indian Institute of Information Technology – Dharwad at Hubli. City Gas Distribution Project at Dharwad will also be unveiled.

Mr Modi will dedicate to the nation SPR facilities in Mangalore and Padur. Doubling of the Chikjajur-Mayakonda railway line is another highlight. Prime Minister will address a public rally later in the evening.
