Modi launches PMGSY-III road scheme in Himachal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week Thursday launched the rural road scheme, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)-III, in Himachal Pradesh, and called for the upgradation of 3,125 km of rural roads.

Over Rs 4.20 billion has been sanctioned by the Central government under this phase of the PMGSY-III for upgrading 440 km of rural roads in 15 border and far-flung blocks of the state.

Modi said that in the past eight years, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government has made 12,000 km of roads in Himachal Pradesh.

The Prime Minister also laid the foundation stones of two hydroelectric projects: the 48 MW Chanju-III project and the 30 MW Deothal Chanju project.

“Hundred per cent water coverage has been made in tribal areas of Lahaul-Spiti and Kinnaur under Har Ghar Jal Yojna,” the prime minister said. Modi said domestic gas connections, too, have been made available in every house in Chamba. “BJP's double-engine government made domestic gas connections available for every home," he said.

Earlier in the day, Modi addressed a public meeting at the Indira Gandhi stadium in the Una district of Himachal Pradesh after flagging off the inaugural run of the new Vande Bharat Express. He also laid the foundation stone of a bulk drug pharma park and inaugurated the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Una.
