After inaugurating India’s longest sea bridge ‘Atal Setu’ in Maharashtra’s Mumbai, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday emphasized that the bridge symbolizes a developed India and offers a glimpse into the nation’s future.
Speaking at a public event in Navi Mumbai, he described Atal Setu as a representation of the facilities, prosperity, speed, and progress that will characterize a developed India.
“Atal Setu is the picture of developed India. This is a glimpse of what a developed India is going to be like. In a developed India, there will be facilities for all, prosperity for all, there will be speed and progress. In developed India, distances will be reduced and every corner of the country will be connected. Be it life or livelihood, everything will go on continuously, without interruption. This is the message of Atal Setu,” he said.
Highlighting that several mega projects are being executed at a rapid pace in Maharashtra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Mumbai is set to get its first Bullet train, along with many other projects being lined up for the state that will boost economic development.
“Several mega projects have been completed in Maharashtra and Mumbai. Several will be completed soon. Last year, Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg was inaugurated. Work is going on at a fast pace on the Navi Mumbai airport project. In the coming years, Mumbai will get its first bullet train,” PM said.
PM Modi also stated that his government’s intention is clean and further took a dig at Congress stating that those who ruled the nation for the longest time had the only intention to fill their coffers and gain power.
“Our government’s intention is clean. For those who ruled the nation for a long time, their intentions and loyalty have always been in question. Their intention was to gain power only. They were only dedicated to the development of their families and this is why they were never able to think about Viksit Bharat,” PM Modi said.
Atal Setu has been constructed at a total cost of more than Rs 17,840 crore.
It is about a 21.8 km long 6-lane bridge having about 16.5 km length over the sea and about 5.5 km on the land.
It is the longest bridge in India and also the longest sea bridge in India.
It will provide faster connectivity to Mumbai International Airport and Navi Mumbai International Airport and will also reduce travel time from Mumbai to Pune, Goa and South India. It will also improve connectivity between Mumbai Port and Jawaharlal Nehru Port, Prime Minister’s Office said.
PM Modi also inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of multiple development projects worth more than Rs 12,700 crore and flagged off the inaugural run of the EMU train from Uran railway station to Kharkopar
