PM Modi to inaugurate 1.9-km long Kosi Rail Mahasetu today

Modi dedicated the "Kosi Rail Mahasetu" to the nation and inaugurated through video conference new railway lines and electrification projects in the state.

"These projects worth nearly Rs 3,000 crore will not just strengthen Bihar's rail network, but also strengthen West Bengal and eastern India's rail connectivity".

Many parts of Bihar are cut off from each other due to rivers crisscrossing the state and people have to undertake long journeys due to this, he said.

Narendra Modi said that it was a "dream project" of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Kumar who was the railway minister then, but it did not progress as fast as it should due to the apathetic attitude of successive governments.

With this thinking, in 2003 the ground-breaking ceremony was done by Vajpayee, but in the next year, his government went and after that the speed of work on the Kosi railway line project slowed down considerably, he said. He said this project was fast paced during the present Government and work has been completed on Supaul-Asanpur Kupaha route using modern technology.

The Ministry further said the Prime Minister will also flag off the Saharsa-Asanpur Kupha demo train from Supaul station.

It would also make long distance travel to Kolkata, Delhi and Mumbai easy for the people of the region. This journey of 300 km will be reduced to just 22 km.

"The wrong policies of the central government made the youth of the country unemployed", the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) said in a statement.

Asserting that the railways is cleaner than ever before, Modi said the railways has been made safer than ever by eliminating unmanned crossings from broad-gauge railway lines. "Today, trains built in India like Vande Bharat are becoming a part of the rail network, a symbol of self-reliance and modernity". In both these projects, nearly Rs 44000 crore have been invested.

He said the people of Bihar will be proud that the most powerful electric locomotive in India - a 12,000 horsepower loco- is being manufactured in the state. Last week, he dedicated petroleum sector projects in Bihar to the nation.

"Four years ago, two mega bridges were built connecting North and South Bihar". With the introduction of Hajipur-Ghoswar Vaishali rail line, Delhi and Patna will be connected by direct rail service, which will boost tourism in Vaishali and create jobs. It was necessary to bring these to protect them from middlemen.

He later inaugurated the Railway Electrification projects of Katihar - New Jalpaiguri, Muzaffarpur - Sitamarhi, Samastipur - Darbhanga - Jaynagar, Samastipur - Khagaria, Bhagalpur - Shivnarayanpur Sections by flagging off train services.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi defended new laws aimed at lifting restrictions on farmers on Friday after protests by opposition parties, some farming bodies and even an ally of his Bharatiya Janata Party. He said that Maha setu will act as catalyst to the growth of agriculture and economy of Bihar. He also refuted the lies propagated that the benefit of MSP will not be given to the farmers by the government and said that the government is committed to provide fair prices to farmers through MSP and Government procurement will continue as before. The PM said, 'Now with the new provisions coming into effect, the farmer will be able to sell his crop in any market of the country, at his desired price'. He said this would save both time and money of the people of Bihar. The Bihar chief minister also appreciated the Railways for transporting over 23 lakh migrant workers to their homes in various places in the state during the lockdown.

Many farmer organisations oppose the legislation because they say that if big buyers start buying directly from producers, small growers will hardly have any bargaining power.
