Udaipur, 29 August(Wishav Warta): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched projects worth more than Rs 15,000 crore in Rajasthan and promised to change the face of the state during his second visit here after becoming PM. “We are here to do work and not make empty election promises. Today, we have inaugurated road projects worth more than Rs 5,600 crore and committed to build road projects worth Rs 9,000 crore in Rajasthan alone,” Modi, who began his speech in the local dialect, said.
Rajasthan goes to polls in December 2018. In a dig at Congress, he said that the previous government in Rajasthan could not complete even a Rs 300 crore bridge over Chambal river in 11 years while the BJP government has done the same in three years.
Modi had earlier inaugurated a six-lane cable-stayed bridge across Chambal river in Kota, along with inaugurating 11 completed national highways totalling 873 km and laying the foundation for 556 km road projects — all at a total outlay of more than Rs 15,000 crore. He then visited Pratap Gaurav Kendra, a tourist spot dedicated to the former king of erstwhile Mewar kingdom, Maharana Pratap.
