PM Modi Opens Mega Expressway In Rajasthan Ahead Of Elections
Today in Dausa, Rajasthan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the first section of the ambitious, nearly 1,400-kilometer-long Delhi-Mumbai highway. The expressway’s 246-kilometer section between Delhi and Jaipur will reduce the trip’s duration from five hours to roughly three and a half. Additionally, the entire region’s economic prospects are anticipated to improve.
“Studies show investment on infrastructure brings in further investments,” the PM said, addressing a public gathering in Dausa’s Dhanawar village, in eastern Rajasthan. He pressed the button of a remote to mark the inauguration. “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas is our mantra for nation, we are making ‘Samarth Bharat’ while following it,” the PM further said, adding that the expressway is “a magnificent picture of developing India”.
He asserted that the motorway will benefit cities like Jaipur and Ajmer as well as national parks like Sariska, Keoladeo, and Ranthambore. According to the prime minister, Rajasthan is already well-known for its tourism industry and the new infrastructure project would make it even more attractive.
On stage at the event were figures such Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of State V K Singh, and Union Minister Gajendra Singh.
