PM Modi unveils transformative projects for northeast development

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the foundation stone-laying ceremony for eight significant projects in Guwahati, including the Kamakhya access corridor project, and the inauguration of two projects totalling over Rs 115 billion, emphasised their role in enhancing connectivity between the northeast region and South East Asia. Under the Prime Minister's Development Initiative for North Eastern Region (PM-DevINE) scheme, the Kamakhya access corridor project is expected to boost the number of pilgrims visiting the Shakti Peeth Kamakhya temple, making it a pivotal tourism gateway for the entire northeast.

Speaking at the event held at the Veterinary College Playground in Khanapara, Guwahati, Modi highlighted the diverse projects, such as upgrading the Nehru Stadium to FIFA standards and the construction of Unity Mall, as catalysts for employment generation in the tourism sector and opportunities for sporting talents. Major initiatives included the Kamakhya temple corridor (Rs 4.98 billion), a six-lane road from the new airport terminal in Guwahati (Rs 3.58 billion), and the upgradation of Nehru Stadium to FIFA standards (Rs 8.31 billion).

Additionally, Modi launched the second phase of 'Asom Mala' roads, involving the upgrade and construction of 43 new roads with 38 concrete bridges, totalling an investment of Rs 34.44 billion. Foundation stones were laid for the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital's integrated new building (Rs 32.5 billion), Karimganj Medical College and Hospital (Rs 5.78 billion), and Unity Mall in Guwahati (Rs 2.97 billion).

Furthermore, the Prime Minister inaugurated the four-lane road from Biswanath Chariali to Gohpur (Rs 14.51 billion) and another four-lane road from Dolabari to Jamuguri (Rs 5.92 billion).
