Jharkhand: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday visited Jharkhand and laid foundation stone for a slew of projects worth Rs 27,000 crore at an event in Sindri.

The projects include revival of Sindri Fertilizer Project of Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan Ltd, Ranchi City Gas Distribution Project by GAIL, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Deoghar, development of Deoghar Airport and Patratu Super Thermal Power Project.

He also witnessed the exchange of MoUs for Jan Aushadhi Kendras.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister paid homage to BhagwanBirsa Munda. He said that the State and Union Governments are working together for the rapid development of Jharkhand.

He said the total cost of the projects, for which foundation stones have been laid today, is Rs 27,000 crore. He said these development projects will give opportunities to the youth of Jharkhand.

He said that when he assumed office, there were 18,000 villages lacking access to electricity. We worked to brighten the lives of people in these villages and took electricity there, he added. Now, we have gone a step further and we are ensuring every household in India has access to electricity, he said.

He said fertiliser plants which had stopped working are in the process of being revived. Eastern India will gain the most from this, he added.

The Prime Minister said that the healthcare sector in the State will be transformed with the establishment of AIIMS in Jharkhand. The poor will get access to top quality healthcare, he added.

The Prime Minister said that the Union Government has made air-travel accessible and affordable.
