Our Focus Is On Creating 21st Century Infrastructure: Prime Minister
“Ahmedabad-Mumbai High-Speed Rail is country’s need and it will strengthen Mumbai’s identity as a city of dreams. Completing this project rapidly is our priority,” Modi said
Now the effort is to increase Mumbai’s capability manifold with regard to its contribution for Atma Nirbhar Bharat, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday while dedicating to the nation two additional railway lines connecting Thane and Diva.
“That is why our special focus is on creating 21st-century infrastructure for Mumbai”, the Prime Minister said. Thousands of crore rupees are being invested in rail connectivity in Mumbai as the Mumbai Suburban Rail system is being equipped with the latest technology. “Ahmedabad-Mumbai High-Speed Rail is country’s need and it will strengthen Mumbai’s identity as a city of dreams. Completing this project rapidly is our priority,” Modi said.
Talking about the changed approach of new India regarding the completion of infrastructure projects, the Prime Minister pointed out that in the past projects lingered due to a lack of coordination from planning to execution stages. This made the creation of 21st-century infrastructure impossible, he said. “The plan will bring every department of the central government, state government’s local bodies, and private sector on one platform. This will provide relevant information well in advance to all stakeholders for proper planning and coordination,” he added.
