Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be in Madhya Pradesh on a day’s visit 23 June 2018 where he will unveil a bouquet of development projects for the state. In the first leg of his visit, PM Modi will be in Rajgarh where he will dedicate the Mohanpura Dam Project to the nation.
This project will facilitate irrigation of agricultural land in Rajgarh district, and provide drinking water to villages in the area. Besides that, he will address a public meeting in Rajgarh to lay the foundation stone of various drinking water schemes and inspect an exhibition on development projects in Rajgarh.
In the second leg of his visit, the Prime Minister will arrive in Indore where he will attend the Madhya Pradesh Shehari Vikas Mahotsav and remotely inaugurate various urban development projects worth over 4000 crore rupees, at various locations across the State.
These include houses under Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana, urban drinking water supply schemes, urban solid waste management, urban sanitation, urban transportation and urban landscape projects. The Prime Minister has often underscored the importance of states in India’s development journey. He also monitors the progress being made by states in implementing various developmental schemes in a bid to inject momentum and clear bottlenecks in the way of achieving desired outcomes.
While PM Modi’s visit to the state would shower immense development benefits on it, it could serve another purpose too, of encouraging other states to compete with Madhya Pradesh in development metrics.
