Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated ‘Maitri Setu’ between India and Bangladesh today through a video conference. He also inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of multiple infrastructure projects in Tripura.
Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said that Tripura is experiencing the clear difference between the 30 years of earlier governments and the ‘double engine’ government of the last three years. In place of corruption and commission culture of earlier years, benefits are reaching directly in the accounts of the beneficiaries.
The Prime Minister informed that in the past 6 years, the central government has taken care of every requirement for the development of Tripura. He said there has been a significant hike in the central allocation for the state.
“The ‘double engine’ government has transformed Tripura from a power deficit state to a power surplus one. The rail and water connectivity projects that have been realized in the recent years have been strengthened by this bridge,” said the Prime Minister.
He said the inauguration of several projects today are efforts to make Agartala a better city.
PM Modi thanked the Bangladesh Government and the Prime Minister of Bangladesh for the cooperation in the completion of the bridge project.
