PM Modi announces projects worth over 550 crores in Varanasi, says Kashi was earlier left at the mercy of Gods

The day after his birthday, Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting at Varanasi, his Lok Sabha constituency, and announced development projects worth over Rs.550 crores. In addition to developing transport facilities for Varanasi’s better connectivity to the rest of the country, PM Modi also announced plans to make Varanasi a world-class medical hub.

“Four years ago, we embarked upon the journey to develop Kashi and today, the difference of four years is clearly visible. You people are witness to those times when Kashi was neglected and left at the mercy of gods in the previous regimes,” said PM Modi at the gathering.

Plans for ‘Super-speciality’ hospitals are also on the cards which will provide modern treatment techniques to patients. PM Modi also spoke of the foundations that were laid for the Vedic Science Centre and Atal Incubation Centre in Varanasi.

Narendra Modi began the speech in a local dialect and chanting ‘Har Har Mahadev’. He said during his address,  “I am happy that projects worth over Rs 550 crore have either been launched or the foundation stone has been laid for them today. The development work is not just for Varanasi but for the nearby areas too. We are trying to develop Varanasi while keeping in mind the tradition and culture of the city. The identity which has been associated with the city since forever will not be hampered due to the development.”

“Before becoming the MP from Varanasi, whenever I used to come here, I saw electricity wires hanging down the poles. I used to always think about when will the city be able to get rid of such things. Today, there are less hanging wires that can be seen from these poles. The remaining work is also being done at full speed,” Prime Minister Modi remarked.
