Modi Unveils India’s First Underwater Metro Route and Projects Worth ₹15,400 Crore in Kolkata

On March 6, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on his 10-day tour of 12 states and union territories (UTs), inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for several projects valued at ₹15,400 crore in Kolkata. In the last five days, he has made two trips to West Bengal.

List of projects PM Modi inaugurated in Kolkata, West Bengal:

  1. The first underwater metro service in India was launched when PM Narendra Modi opened the Howrah Maidan-Esplanade leg of the Kolkata Metro’s East-West track. The 4.8-kilometer East-West Metro route, which will contain the deepest Metro station in India at Howrah—30 meters below ground level—was constructed at an official cost of ₹4,965 crore. Crucial locations, such as Salt Lake Sector V, the IT hub, would be connected with the relief corridor.
  2. The East-West Kolkata Metro corridor’s Howrah Maidan-Esplanade segment is officially opened today, but passenger services won’t start until later, according to Central Railways.
  3. During his visit to Kolkata, the PM highlighted additional rail services to improve pathways to guarantee convenient urban travel. The Taratala-Majerhat Metro segment and the Kavi Subhash-Hemanta Mukhopadhyay portion are two of these.
  4. Agra Metro’s stretch from Taj East Gate to Mankameshwar; the Kochi Metro Rail Phase I Extension project (Phase IB); the Pune Metro from Ruby Hall Clinic to Ramwadi stretch; and the Duhai-Modinagar (North) section of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS Corridor are among the other projects that PM Modi dedicated to the country.
  5. PM Modi is scheduled to speak at a public rally later in the afternoon in Barasat, which is located in the North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, which is home to Sandeshkhali.

PM Modi’s last visit to Bengal

PM Modi spoke at two rallies in Hooghly’s Arambagh and Nadia’s Krishnanagar during his visit to West Bengal last week. He said that the “entire country is seething with anger over the issue” as he attacked the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government for “atrocities on women” in Sandeshkhali. In the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, he also urged people to make sure the TMC loses. In the meantime, Modi also had a “courtesy meeting” with Mamata Banerjee at Raj Bhavan in Kolkata, which the chief minister referred to as such according to tradition.

Swati Maliwal Assault: Kejriwal and Akhilesh Dismiss Questions; Sanjay Singh Speaks Out | Watch

Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav addressed the media together. When Kejriwal brought up the topic of the assault on Swati Maliwal, he handed the microphone to Akhilesh. He stated, “There are more important things than this.” As for the alleged attack on Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal at Kejriwal’s residence by CM’s PA Bibhav Kumar, AAP MP Sanjay Singh has made statements about it thus far. He said he would speak on the matter and then cited Manipur, Prajwal Revanna, and the wrestlers’ protest against former chief wrestler of the Wrestling Federation of India, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

“The prime minister said nothing while the wife of a Kargil hero was paraded in Manipur in her undies. PM Modi requested support for Prajwal Revanna, who had raped and molested many women. And the authorities assisted him in his escape. Swati Maliwal went to visit the women wrestlers during their protests at night, and the cops beat her up. Sanjay Singh remarked, “We have seen PM Modi’s silence on Hathras, Kuldeep Sengar. “The Party of Aam Aadmi is a family. The party has already made it clear where it stands on this matter. I want the BJP to respond to all of these questions, especially the incident in which the cops beat up Swati Maliwal. Politics shouldn’t be played over this, according to Sanjay Singh.

On Wednesday, Sanjay Singh visited Swati Maliwal at her home, but the BJP is pressing for action against Vibhav Kumar in this regard. Leaders of the BJP also questioned if Swati Maliwal was under pressure from the AAP, given that no formal complaint has been filed on the assault event. The picture of Bibhav Kumar seen at the Lucknow airport with Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh was released by the BJP on Thursday. “This is the image from last night of the Lucknow airport.” Vibhav, the one wearing the black shirt, struck Swati Maliwal. Kejriwal is upset, as is Sanjay Singh, who said that Bibhav has done something really wrong. BJP’s Kapil Mishra commented on X, saying, “The third one is Kejriwal himself, who is accused of getting Swati beaten up.”

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Amit Shah will succeed Narendra Modi as prime minister in 2025, when the latter turns 75, according to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who announced this Thursday. The prime minister has never said he will not step down at that age. Despite the disagreements between Amit Shah and some other politicians on Kejriwal’s age and retirement, PM Modi never said he wouldn’t retire at 75, Kejriwal said at a joint press conference with Samajwadi Party chairman Akhilesh Yadav (Lucknow). “Everyone in the nation is confident that Modi won’t deviate from his 75-year retirement age,” Kejriwal stated.

“Amit Shah’s appointment as prime minister is now confirmed. According to him, the BJP has ignored every opponent, including Devendra Fadnavis, Manohar Lal Khattar, Vasundhara Raje, Dr. Raman Singh, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The only issue at hand is Yogi Adityanath, who would be ousted in two to three months, according to Kejriwal, who also mentioned that no BJP leader had disputed his remarks against Adityanath, suggesting that Adityanath’s departure was all but certain.

According to Kejriwal, eliminating reservations is the BJP’s “big plan” if they win the election.

During his first rally after leaving Tihar, Kejriwal stated that if he supported the BJP, Amit Shah would become prime minister since, according to party policy, no one over 75 may hold any job. Narendra Modi will turn 75 in 2025. In response to Kejriwal’s assertion, Amit Shah stated that Narendra Modi will serve out his term and continue to head the party well beyond 2029. Amit Shah charged that Kejriwal was fomenting disarray within the party about the leadership, whereas there is none.

“I would want to inform Arvind Kejriwal and associates that there is no need to celebrate Modiji’s 75th birthday. The BJP constitution does not mention his ineligibility to serve as prime minister. He will serve out the remainder of his time as prime minister. The party is not confused,” Amit Shah declared.
