PM Modi will dedicate the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor today. At 12 p.m., Prime Minister Modi will pay a visit to Kaal Bhairav. After that, at one o’clock in the afternoon, there is a programme to visit Kashi Vishwanath temple. PM Modi would travel to Dham on a cruise ship. PM Modi would drink Ganga water from Kamandal’s Lalita Ghat.
After that, we’ll spend around an hour and a half on the temple grounds. PM Modi will share a meal with the 100 workers who are preparing this route. By joining the cruise in the evening, you will be able to view the aarti. Along with PM Modi and Chief Minister Yogi, Chief Ministers from 11 states will be arriving in Kashi at the time of Aarti. But Kashi was not always how you see him today in photographs.
When the Prime Minister first visited Kashi, he was deeply saddened by the state of the temple and its surrounds. He realised then that something needed to be done for Baba Vishwanath in Kashi. His wish has finally come true. ‘Perhaps it was the will of the Lord, his command was that you go son, you should renovate this spot,’ PM Modi remarked of Kashi Vishwanath.
Tomorrow, 13th December is a landmark day. At a special programme in Kashi, the Shri Kashi Vishwanath Dham project will be inaugurated. This will add to Kashi's spiritual vibrancy. I would urge you all to join tomorrow's programme. https://t.co/DvTrEKfSzk pic.twitter.com/p2zGMZNv2U

PM Modi told architect Bimal Patel this
PM Modi had instructed the corridor’s architect, Bimal Patel, to design it in such a way that the temples are connected to the Ganges, that people can bathe in the Ganges or go directly to the temple with water, and that there is no hindrance. Make a path for pilgrims to follow that will make their minds joyful. The Prime Minister continued to go over the master plan with his team. View 3D animations and maps. PM Modi also told the architects to pay special attention to the ghat area, which includes facilities for the disabled.
Task was difficult and every inch was filled with concrete
The task was arduous due to topography and demography, and every inch was filled with concrete. Compulsory property acquisition was not carried out because the disagreement intensified and took time; people would go to court, but no case is now in court. On the basis of a fair, just, and transparent process of mutual agreement, land was obtained. There were several such properties, each with many owners who resided in various locations, some of whom were even abroad. Getting everyone on the same page was a difficult effort. Despite these difficulties, Kashi is thriving today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has some information on the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, which will be inaugurated today:
- The first phase of construction cost Rs 339 crore.
- Every day, almost 2000 labourers have been on the job.
- The corridor encompasses a total size of 5 lakh square feet.
- A total of 400 buildings have been bought in order to construct this corridor.
- PM Modi’s dream project took two years and nine months to complete.
