Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday laid the foundation stone of a new international airport at Bharuch in Gujarat and assured the people that the industrial development in the region would get a new growth momentum with the BJP’s “double engine” government in power.

“And when there is a double-engine government of Narendra-Bhupendra, then the airport work will also be completed faster,” PM Modi remarked at a massive rally ahead of the assembly elections.

“I am happy to announce that now along with industrial development, Bharuch will also be home to an international airport. This airport will play an important role in increasing exports from Gujarat,” he added.

He stressed that Bharuch won’t need to depend on airports in other areas as it will have one of its own. “Bharuch won’t need to depend on Baroda or Surat airport. Now Bharuch will have its own airport. So, today, the foundation stone is being laid to build a new airport at Ankleshwar,” he said.

In another step towards making India “Aatmanirbhar” (self-reliant) in the pharmaceutical sector, PM Modi laid the foundation stone of a bulk drug park at Jambusar. In 2021-22, bulk drugs accounted for over 60 per cent of total pharmaceutical imports.

“Today Gujarat has got the first bulk drug park, and that, too, in my Bharuch. Several plants related to the chemical sector have also been inaugurated today,” he said at the rally.

PM Modi inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of projects worth over Rs 8,000 crore in Bharuch and Jamnagar today.

He also inaugurated Phase 1 of Modi Shaikshanik Sankul, an educational complex for needy students, in Ahmedabad. The project will help provide facilities to students for holistic development.

This is the second day of the Prime Minister’s current visit to Gujarat which has given a big boost to the BJP’s campaign for the assembly elections in the state.

The prime minister also laid the foundation stone of the Deep Sea Pipeline Project at Dahej, which will help in the disposal of treated wastewater from industrial estates.

“The Prime Minister also performed the ground-breaking ceremony for the development of multiple industrial parks in the Bharuch.

Besides, the Prime Minister dedicated to the nation and lay the foundation stone of projects worth around Rs 1,450 crore in Jamnagar. These projects relate to irrigation, power, water supply and urban infrastructure.

In his speech PM Modi also paid tributes SP Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav who passed away today.

“Mulayam Singh Yadav ji’s demise is a huge loss for the nation. I had a special relationship with him. When BJP declared me as PM candidate in 2014, I spoke to all opposition leaders. He gave me his blessings in the way of his advice which has stayed with me even today,” he added.
