PM Modi unveils projects under ‘Namami Gange’ yojana and more before upcoming Bihar elections

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday (September 15, 2020) inaugurated various projects under the ‘Namami Gange’ Yojana and the ‘AMRUT’ Yojana in Bihar. The four schemes inaugurated include sewerage treatment plants at Beur and Karam-Leechak in Patna city, as well as water-related projects in Siwan and Chhapra under the ‘AMRUT’ Yojana. Apart from this, foundation stones were also laid for water supply projects in Munger and Jamalpur and River Front Development Scheme under Namami Gange in Muzaffarpur.

PM Modi said that even during the times of COVID-19, the work on various development projects progressed uninterrupted in Bihar.

He referred to the projects worth hundreds of crores of rupees that were inaugurated in the recent past in the state which would benefit the farmers of Bihar along with the development of infrastructure.

The Prime Minister lauded the contribution of the engineers to the development of the country on the occasion of Engineer’s Day, which is celebrated in the memory of India’s pioneering modern civil engineer, Sir M Visvesvaraya.

Modi expressed that Bihar also significantly contributed to the development of the country by producing millions of engineers.

Prime Minister Modi said Bihar is the land of historical cities and has a rich heritage of thousands of years.

“After independence, Bihar was led by visionary leaders who tried their best to remove the distortions which developed during the era of slavery,” he said.

PM Modi added there was a lopsided development with changed priorities which resulted in urban infrastructure degradation and collapse of the rural infrastructure in the state.

The Prime Minister said when selfishness overtakes governance and the vote bank politics come into play then the already marginalized and deprived would be the most affected.

PM Modi expressed people of Bihar have endured this pain for decades when the basic needs like water and sewerage are not met.

He stated that people contract diseases by drinking dirty water under compulsion and a large part of his earnings goes to treatment. “Under these circumstances, a very large section in Bihar had accepted debt, disease, helplessness, illiteracy as their fate.”

The Prime Minister said for the past few years efforts are on to reverse the system and bring back the confidence to the most affected section of the society. “The way the education of daughters has been given priority, the participation of disadvantaged in local bodies including Panchayati Raj is increasing and their confidence is growing. Since 2014, almost complete control of infrastructure-related schemes has been given to Gram Panchayats or local bodies.”

PM Modi stated, “Now, from the planning to implementation, and the maintenance of the schemes, the local bodies are able to meet the local needs and this is the reason that there is a continuous improvement in the infrastructure of basic amenities like drinking water and sewer in the cities of Bihar.”

The Prime Minister said in the last 4-5 years, lakhs of families have been provided access to drinking water in the urban areas of Bihar under the Mission AMRUT and State Government schemes. “In the coming years, Bihar will be among those states of the country, where every house will have piped water supply. The people of Bihar have also worked continuously in this crisis of Corona to achieve this big goal.”

He added that the Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyan played a big role in providing water connections to more than 57 lakh families in the last few months, in rural areas of Bihar due to the work of the migrant labor, who returned to Bihar from other states.

The Prime Minister said this Jal Jeevan Mission is dedicated to these hard-working colleagues of Bihar. “In the last one year, more than two crore water connections have been given all over the country under the Jal Jeevan Mission. Today, more than one lakh houses are being connected through pipes to new connections of water every day. Clean water not only improves the life of the poor but also protects them from many serious diseases.”

He opined that in urban areas also, the work for providing pure water to 12 lakh families in Bihar under AMRUT Yojana is fast progressing and out of this about 6 lakh families have already been provided connection, reported Zee news.

The Prime Minister said the number of urban settlements is fast increasing and urbanization has become a reality today but for many decades urbanization was considered a hindrance.

Quoting Baba Saheb Ambedkar who was a great supporter of urbanization, the Prime Minister said Ambedkar did not consider urbanization to be a problem, he had imagined cities where even the poorest of the poor get opportunities, opening the way for the betterment of life.

He added that the cities should be such that everyone, especially our youth, gets new and limitless possibilities to move forward. “There should be cities where every family can live life with prosperity and happiness. Cities should be where everyone, poor, Dalit, backward, women get a respectable life.”

The Prime Minister said we are witnessing new urbanization in the country today and the cities are also making their presence felt today. “Until a few years ago urbanization meant developing a few areas in a few selected cities. But now this thinking is changing. And, the people of Bihar are making their full contribution to this new urbanization of India.”

He said it is very important to prepare the cities according to the needs of the future and not the present, to give impetus to the mission of Atma-Nirbhar Bihar, Atma-Nirbhar Bharat. “With this thinking, under the AMRUT Mission, the emphasis is being laid on the development of basic facilities in many cities of Bihar.”

PM Modi said in Bihar, over 4.5 lakh LED street lights have been installed in more than 100 municipal bodies. “Due to this, the lights in the streets and streets of our small cities are getting better, electricity is being saved for hundreds of crores and the lives of people are getting easier.”

He said about 20 big and important cities of the state are located on the banks of the Ganga river. The cleanliness of the Ganga river, cleanliness of Ganga water has a direct effect on crores of people living in these cities. Keeping in mind the cleanliness of the Ganga river, PM said more than 50 projects worth more than Rs 6000 crores have been approved in Bihar.

He stated that the government is making efforts to install many water treatment plants, in all the cities along the banks of the Ganges, to prevent the water of dirty drains from falling directly into the Ganges.

He opined that the scheme of Beur and Karam-Lichchak inaugurated in Patna will benefit millions of people in this region. Along with this, the villages on the banks of Ganga are also being developed as ‘Ganga Gram’.

Apart from these, the AIIMS Plan and first flight service from Darbhanga were among the significant announcements.

Modi government has decided to open AIIMS in Darbhanga, Bihar. This was decided in the cabinet meeting. It may take four years to build this hospital. It has been told that Rs 1264 crore will be spent on this. This is the big announcement of the Modi government before the elections in Bihar. Till now there is only one AIIMS in the state, which is in Patna. There is already a medical college in Darbhanga. But AIIMS will change the picture of the whole Mithilanchal. The decision to start flight service before Chhath in Darbhanga and now the announcement of starting AIIMS. It seems the BJP is on a mission to win the hearts of the people of Mithila. On Sunday, party president JP Nadda also visited Darbhanga. He also met the farmers of Makhana there.

Pag Pag Pokhari Macha Makhan, Saras Bol Muski Mukh Paan. Mithila’s identity is told in this one line. Areas where there are ponds everywhere. Fish and Makhana. People speak sweet dialect and mouth is always full of betel leaf. But Mithilanchal has another identity. Poverty, helplessness, and devastation of floods every year. Even now many houses in this area are submerged in water. Lalit Narayan Mishra was the railway minister of the country in the era of Indira Gandhi. During his time a lot of work was done in Mithila. Then this area was ignored. But two decisions of the Modi government have again brought Mithila and Maithilas into the discussion, reported ABP News.

If AIIMS starts in Darbhanga in four years i.e. till the next Lok Sabha elections, then PM Narendra Modi will be remembered in Mithilanchal for a long time. There was a great need in this area. Earlier last week, Darbhanga Airport was announced to start. Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri visited there. Then told that the flight will start from the first week of November. For which booking can be started from this month. So far, only flights operate from Patna and Gaya.

Districts like Darbhanga, Madhubani, Purnia, Katihar, Saharsa, Supaul, Madhepura fall into Mithilanchal in Bihar. This area is adjacent to Nepal. Every year, Kosi dips some areas and Kamala is given some. There is no big industry here. Due to floods, only one crop is grown in many places. This area of ​​Bihar is considered backward but politically aware.

Since independence, Congress has dominated Mithilanchal. In some districts, the lift boards also remained strong. After Mandal Commission, the hold of RJD in the area continued to strengthen. RJD is still dominated by the Muslim Yadav equation. But now BJP is also challenging. In the Lok Sabha elections, the NDA had a heavy upper hand. But Modi is trying to make Mithilanchal his stronghold with the best gifts.
