On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Haldwani in Uttarakhand to lay the foundation stone for 23 projects costing over Rs 17,500 crore.

The foundation stone will be placed for 17 of the 23 projects, totaling about 14,100 crore.

Irrigation, road, housing, health infrastructure, industrial, sanitation, and drinking water supply are among the sectors/areas covered by these projects, according to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Six projects will be inaugurated during the programme, including numerous road expansion projects, a hydropower plant in Pithoragarh, and sewerage network improvement projects in Nainital. The projects being launched have a total cost of approximately 3,400 crore.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the Lakhwar Multipurpose Project, which will cost around Rs 5,750 crore to construct. This idea was first envisaged in 1976 and has been in the works for a long time. The project’s foundation stone was placed as a result of the Prime Minister’s desire to prioritise long-delayed initiatives. This project of national significance would provide drinking water to the six states of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, and Rajasthan, as well as irrigation for an extra 34,000 hectares of land.

The inauguration and foundation stone laying of several road sector projects totaling over Rs 8700 crore will be done in keeping with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s objective to increase connectivity in far-flung parts of the country.

Four lane Moradabad-Kashipur Road to be built at a cost of over 4000 crore; two lane Gadarpur-Dineshpur-Madkota-Haldwani road (SH-5) and 18 kilometre stretch of Kiccha to Pantnagar (SH-44); construction of 8 kilometre long Khatima bypass in Udham Singh Nagar; construction of four lane National Highway (NH109D) to be built at a cost of over 175

The connectivity of the Garhwal, Kumaon, and Terai regions, as well as the connectivity between Uttarakhand and Nepal, would be improved through these road projects.

The Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stones for a number of road projects around the state as part of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna. The projects include the construction of 151 bridges at a cost of nearly 450 crores and the laying of 133 rural roads with a total length of 1157 kilometres at a cost of more than 625 crores.

A 99-kilometer road widening project from Nagina to Kashipur (NH-74), built at a cost of over 2500 crore, and projects to widen three stretches of the strategic Tanakpur-Pithoragarh road (NH 125), built under an all-weather road project at a cost of over 780 crore, are among the road projects inaugurated by the Prime Minister. The three sections are 32 kilometres long from Chyurani to Ancholi, 29 kilometres long from Bilkhet to Champawat, and 32 kilometres long from Tilon to Chyurani (28 kilometre).

The road widening projects will boost tourism, industrial, and commercial activities in the region while also improving connection in rural locations.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of AIIMS Rishikesh satellite centre in Udham Singh Nagar district and Jagjivan Ram Government Medical College in Pithoragarh in an effort to expand the state’s medical infrastructure and provide world-class medical facilities to people in all parts of the country. The cost of these two hospitals is estimated to be over 500 crores and 450 crores, respectively. The increased medical infrastructure will benefit not just the people of Kumaon and Terai, but also the people of Uttar Pradesh’s surrounding territories.

In the cities of Sitarganj and Kashipur in the Udham Singh Nagar district, the Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the construction of about 2400 dwellings for the economically disadvantaged.

In addition, the Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for water supply schemes in Haridwar and Nainital to ensure a consistent supply of high-quality water in these cities. The programmes will give around 14500 connections in Haridwar and over 2400 connections in Haldwani, helping approximately one lakh people in Haridwar and approximately 12,000 people in Haldwani.

The foundation stone for a 41-acre Aroma Park in Kashipur and a 40-acre Plastic Industrial Park in Sitarganj will be laid, according to the Prime Minister’s goal of creating new pathways for accessing a region’s natural resources. State Infrastructure & Industrial Development Corporation Uttarakhand Limited (SIIDCUL) would develop the two projects at a total cost of about Rs 100 crore.

The Plastic Industrial Park will be a step in establishing the state’s industrial strength and providing people with jobs.
