PM dedicates  Kosi Rail Mahasetu to nation, inaugurates new rail lines & electrification projects in Bihar

New Delhi, Sep 18 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday dedicated the historic Kosi Rail Mahasetu to the nation and inaugurated new rail lines and electrification projects in Bihar for the benefit of passengers through video conference.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said a new history has been created in the field of rail connectivity in Bihar.

He said projects worth about Rs 3000 crore like inauguration of Kosi Mahasetu and Kiul Bridge, electrification projects, promotion of Make in India in Railways and a dozen of new job creating projects were launched today.

'These projects will not only strengthen Bihar’s rail network but also strengthen West Bengal and Eastern India’s rail connectivity,' the PM said.

The Prime Minister congratulated the people of Bihar for the new and modern facilities which would benefit the railway passengers of Eastern India including Bihar.

He said many parts of Bihar are cut off from each other due to many rivers crisscrossing the state and people have to perform long journeys due to this. He said four years ago, construction of two Mahasetu was started in Patna and in Munger, to solve this problem.

'Now, due to the commissioning of these two rail bridges, the travel between North and South Bihar has eased and this has initiated a new momentum for development especially in North Bihar,' he said.

The Prime Minister said a severe earthquake which occured eight and a half decades ago isolated the Mithila and Kosi region and it is a coincidence that both the regions are being interlinked in the midst of a pandemic like Corona.

'Today, the Supaul-Asanpur-Kupha rail route is dedicated to the nation due to the hard work of the migrant labourers who were also involved in the construction of the bridge,' he said.
