PM lays foundation of three metro corridors in Mumbai


Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday urged people of Maharashtra to stop plastic from entering into the sea during the immersion of Ganesh idols.

He said while people bid adieu to the beloved Ganpati, a lot of plastic and other waste goes into the sea and this time people should try that these pollutants do not carry into the water bodies.

The Prime Minister was speaking in Mumbai where he inaugurated a slew of new projects. Mr. Modi said, Government has planned to spend 100 lakh crore rupees in the next five years to create better infrastructure in the country.

Prime Minister laid the foundation stones for three Metro corridors worth over 19,000 crore rupees. The three corridors are expected to carry more than 40 lakh commuters daily.

Mr. Modi also inaugurated the first metro coach manufactured by the state-run Bharat Earth Movers under the ‘Make In India’ initiative.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also dedicated the first phase of Aurangabad Industrial City-AURIC under Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor. Speaking at a function in Aurangabad, Mr Modi said the Corridor is heading towards becoming a hub of industrial activity in the country.

The Prime Minister also allotted the 8th crore LPG gas cylinder connection to a woman beneficiary. He congratulated beneficiaries for achieving this target, seven months before schedule.

Mr Modi addressed a rally of Empowered Self-Help Group women who had come from various parts of Maharashtra. Mr Modi promised to provide drinking water to every household in the next five years. He said 3.5 lakh crore rupees have been earmarked under Jal-Jeevan Abhiyaan for the purpose.

Emphasising the need for women empowerment, the Prime Minister said that every woman belonging to a Self Help Group, SHG, and having a Jandhan bank account will get an overdraft facility of five thousand rupees. Besides, one woman would also receive a loan of one lakh rupees under Mudra Yojana.
