AHMEDABAD : Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated the Vadodara-Bharuch section of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and dedicated several other development projects to the nation. The development projects encompass sectors like road, rail, energy, health, internet connectivity, urban development, water supply and tourism.

After inaugurating the Vadodara-Bharuch section of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, PM Modi tweeted on X: “Inauguration of the Vadodara-Bharuch section of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway today marks a milestone in infrastructure development for Gujarat. This crucial stretch not only enhances connectivity between major economic hubs but also promises a smoother journey for several people.”

At a public function in Gujarat’s Navsari, PM Modi dedicated to the nation multiple road projects in Bharuch, Navsari, and Valsad; a rural drinking water supply project in Tapi; and an underground drainage project in Bharuch, among other projects.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone of the first PM Mega Integrated Textile Regions and Apparel (MITRA) Park at Vansi Borsi village in Navsari.

Referring to the buzz around Modi Ki Guarantee, the Prime Minister underlined the certainty of the completion of guarantees given by him, a fact known to the people of Gujarat for a long time. He recalled ‘Five F’ which he used to talk about during his Chief Minister days – Farm, Farm to Fiber, Fiber to Factory, Factory to Fashion, Fashion to Foreign. He said that the goal was to have a full supply and value chain of textiles. “Today, the silk city of Surat is getting an expansion till Navsari”, the Prime Minister said, highlighting India’s capability to compete with the largest producers and exporters in the sector.

Highlighting the role of Gujarat’s textile industry, the Prime Minister touched upon the unique identity of textiles manufactured in Surat. He emphasized that the completion of the PM MITRA Park will change the face of the entire region where an investment worth Rs 3,000 crores will be made solely in its construction. He said PM MITRA Park will create a value-chain ecosystem for activities such as cutting, weaving, ginning, garments, technical textiles and textile machinery while also giving a boost to employment. The Prime Minister informed that the Park will be equipped with houses for the workers, logistics park, warehousing, health facilities, and facilities for training and skill development.

According to a statement released on February 21, building a strong road network across the state is one of the top priorities of the Gujarat government. In this direction, the construction of three sections of the Vadodara-Mumbai Expressway in Gujarat has been completed.
