PM Modi to launch projects worth Rs 11,300 cr in Hyderabad
HYDERABAD : Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of projects worth over Rs 11,300 crore in Telangana on April 8. PM Modi will also lay the foundation stone for the redevelopment of Secunderabad Railway Station in Telangana.
In a major infrastructure and connectivity push for the southern states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka between April 8-9 to inaugurate and lay foundation stones for development projects worth thousands of crore rupees.
During his two-hour visit to Hyderabad, he will also address a public meeting at Parade Grounds in Secunderabad.
As per the itinerary, Modi will reach Begumpet Airport at 11.30 a.m. He will then reach Secunderabad Railway Station to flag off Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express. This train is expected to reduce the travel time between the two cities by almost three and half hours and will be particularly beneficial for pilgrim passengers.
This is the second Vande Bharat train to be started from Telangana within three months. In January, the Prime Minister had virtually flagged off Secunderabad-Visakhapatnam Vande Bharat.
After flagging off Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express, the Prime Minister will attend a public meeting at Parade Grounds, where he will lay the foundation stone for new blocks at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Bibinagar.
Union Minister for tourism and culture G. Kishan Reddy, who is a member of the Lok Sabha from Secunderabad, said this would give a big boost to the health infrastructure in Telangana. The expansion and new facilities include academic blocks, auditorium, staff quarters, hostels and guest houses.
The Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of redevelopment of Secunderabad Railway Station, which is being taken at a cost of Rs 720 crore. The station will undergo a massive makeover with world-class amenities and aesthetically designed iconic station building. The redeveloped station would be having double-level spacious roof plaza with all passenger amenities at one place along with multimodal connectivity for providing seamless transfer of passengers from rail to other modes among others.
