Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched schemes worth Rs 21,000 crore in Gujarat, hardly six months away from assembly elections in his home state in December.
He laid the foundation stone for Railway projects worth more than Rs 16,000 crore—works that include a new 357-km long Palanpur-Madar section of a dedicated freight corridor (DFC). He laid foundation stones for the redevelopment of Surat, Udhna, Somnath and Sabarmati railway stations.
Modi dedicated 138,000 houses worth Rs 1,800 crore in urban areas and Rs 1,530 crore in rural areas: they were constructed as part of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) scheme.
