CHHATTISGARH: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his visit to the state of Chhattisgarh, unveiled railway initiatives worth a staggering sum of Rs 6,400 crore, all with an eye on the upcoming state elections. In a significant move, he initiated the construction of 'critical care blocks' comprising 50 beds each, slated to be constructed across nine districts within the state.

Taking the podium at the 'Shankhnaad rally' in Raigarh, PM Modi underscored, "Today, Chhattisgarh takes yet another stride on its path of development with the inauguration of railway projects worth Rs 6,400 crore." He also distributed a substantial number of counseling cards for sickle cell patients in the state.

He emphasized, "Chhattisgarh is now witnessing the completion of all major projects undertaken by the central government. A new chapter is being etched in the state's railway history." Expanding on the global stage, he proudly mentioned the G20 Summit, highlighting how world leaders, gathered in Delhi, were greatly impressed by India's endeavors toward poverty alleviation and overall development.

The spectrum of projects encompasses several pivotal undertakings, including the Chhattisgarh East Rail Project Phase-I, the third railway line connecting Champa and Jamga, another third railway line between Pendra Road and Anuppur, and the installation of the MGR (Merry-Go-Round) system linking the Talaipalli Coal Mine to the NTPC Lara Super Thermal Power Station (STPS).

Significantly, this railway endeavor is set to invigorate socioeconomic progress by streamlining both passenger and freight transport within the region. The Chhattisgarh East Rail Project Phase-I, integrated within the ambitious PM GatiShakti National Master Plan for multimodal connectivity, encompasses a 124.8-kilometer rail line stretching from Kharsia to Dharamjaygarh, inclusive of a spur line leading to Gare-Pelma and three feeder lines connecting Chhal, Baroud, Durgapur, and various coal mines.

Shifting focus to the state of Madhya Pradesh, PM Modi continued his visionary mission by laying the foundation stones for projects exceeding a monumental sum of Rs. 50,700 crore. These projects encompassed the 'Petrochemical Complex' situated within the Bina Refinery premises and ten additional industrial initiatives spread across the state.

In Madhya Pradesh, the Prime Minister inaugurated the Petrochemical Complex at the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) Bina Refinery. This cutting-edge refinery, with an estimated investment of approximately Rs. 49,000 crore, is set to produce an annual output of 1200 KTPA (kilo-tonnes per annum) of ethylene and propylene, crucial components for a multitude of sectors, including textiles, packaging, and pharmaceuticals.

This venture will markedly reduce the nation's dependence on imports and stands as a tangible step towards realizing the vision of 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat' advocated by the Prime Minister. Furthermore, this mega project is poised to generate substantial employment opportunities and foster the development of downstream industries within the petroleum sector, as outlined in the official statement.
