PM Modi today inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of Rs 56,000 crore worth development projects in Telangana’s Adilabad. Over 30 projects were unveiled linked to electricity, environment & roadways.

The event was attended by the State Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan and Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy among others.

“Today, I have inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of over 30 development projects worth more than Rs 56,000 crores,” Modi said at the Telangana event. “Today, the foundation laying ceremony of two new national highways in Adilabad, Bela and Mulugu was also held. These modern road and rail infrastructures will help in developing Telangana,” he added.

“The projects will write new chapter of development in several states,” he added.

Modi took aim at the opposition coalition, INDIA bloc, accusing them of corruption and nepotism. During his speech, he emphasized his commitment to the 140 crore people of India, stating that his life is an open book.

Modi countered the opposition’s criticism of his ‘Parivarvad’ or family-centric approach, stating, “The leaders of the INDI alliance, deeply engrossed in corruption, nepotism, and appeasement, are becoming nervous. When I question their ‘Parivarvad,’ they have started saying that Modi has no family.”

Asserting his connection with the people, he said, “My life is an open book, 140 crore people of the country are my family. Today, crores of daughters, mothers, and sisters of the country are Modi’s family. Every poor person in the country is my family. Those who have no one, they also belong to Modi and Modi belongs to them.”

He addressed the concern about his workload, stating, “The countrymen know and understand me very well, keeping track of my every moment. Sometimes when I work till late night and the news is out, lakhs of people from across the country write to me asking me not to work so much, take some rest.”

Reaffirming his commitment to the people, PM Modi stated, “I live with feelings Mera Bharat, Mera Parivaar. I am living for you, fighting for you and will continue to fight for you, to fulfill your dreams with determination.”

Highlighting the government’s developmental initiatives, he mentioned the Viksit Bharat Action Plan, with over 15 lakh people providing suggestions and 3,75,000 stakeholders actively participating. PM Modi listed completed projects, such as inaugurating educational institutions and the world’s largest storage scheme for farmers.

Addressing criticism of these projects as ‘election baits,’ he responded, “Those labeling the development projects as a ‘Chunavi’ tactic must be given an account of the last 15 days.” He detailed inaugurating various projects, emphasizing, “These 15 days have built the Atmanirbhar Bharat!”

The PM dedicated the 660 MW (Unit-2) of North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project in Chatra, Jharkhand. This is the country’s first Supercritical Thermal Power Project conceived with an Air Cooled Condenser (ACC) of such large magnitude which reduces water consumption to one-third in comparison to conventional water-cooled condensers.

The commencement of work in this project was flagged off by the Prime Minister.

Revanth Reddy said PM means like a big brother and the state needs his support for to progress like Gujarat, Modi’s home-state.

Reddy, addressing the audience, said he envisions a Gujarat model and aspires to emulate it in the future. “I support PM Modi’s vision to make India a $5 trillion economy,” he added.

PM Modi is scheduled to visit to 12 states in 10 days, including Tamil Nadu, planning massive public meetings. The Prime Minister will visit Sangareddy in Telangana on March 5 to launch and lay the foundation stone for a number of Rs 6,800 crore worth of development projects.
