Prime Minister Narendra Modi Launches Various Projects In Puducherry; Assures Centre's Support For Union Territory's Development
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated a slew of completed projects in Puducherry and laid the foundation stone for others, including in the ports and highways sectors.
Insisting that the Centre has made many efforts to improve rural and coastal connectivity, he said farmers across the country were innovating and that it was the duty of his government to ensure their produce got good market.
"Good roads do exactly that," he said while laying the foundation stone for the four-laning of NH 45 A Sattanathapuram-Nagappattinam stretch covering Karaikal district.
The four-laning activity will certainly lead to better connectivity while economic activity will pick up pace, he said.
At the same time it will improve access to the holy Shaneeswaran temple at Tirunallar and provide easy interstate connectivity to The Basilica of Our Lady of Good Health and the Nagore Dargah, both located in nearby Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu, he noted.
