PM will visit the poll-bound state to inaugurate several projects

After several rallies and visits to West Bengal, Prime Minister Modi is all set to again visit the poll-bound state on Monday, February 22, for a few hours. The visit would help in fortifying the election campaigns that are being held by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the assembly polls in the state. PM Modi is expected to inaugurate the extension of the North-South metro route stretching from Noapara to Dakshineshwar (in Kolkata). In addition, he will also be launching some other railway projects. Apart from this, he is also scheduled to address a public rally in the Hooghly district.

On Sunday, February 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi uploaded a tweet on his official Twitter handle which read’ “From Hooghly, the extension of Metro Railway from Noapara to Dakshineshwar will be inaugurated. This project is special because it will improve access to the sacred Maa Kali Temples at Kalighat and Dakshineshwar. These Temples are vibrant symbols of India’s great culture.”

He added that the new addition from Naopara to Dakshineshwar will be a stretch of four kilometers extending the North-South Metro line, which is also one of the most used travel lines of the city.
In another tweet, he said, “Other projects being inaugurated include the third line between Kalaikunda and Jhargram, doubling of Azimganj to Khargraghat Road section, the fourth line between Dankuni and Baruipara of Howrah – Bardhaman Chord Line and the third line between Rasulpur and Magra of Howrah–Bardhaman Main Line.”


Modi would address a public rally from Chinsurah in the Hooghly district, which would be his second public rally in the poll-bound state. His first rally was held on February 7 in the East Midnapore district. Modi is again expected to visit the state and conduct his next rally on March 7, from the Brigade Parade Ground which is in the center of Kolkata. A BJP leader said that the rally would mark the end of the Rath Yatras that are currently going on.
