PM Modi Telangana tour: Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Adilabad district of Telangana today (March 4) and inaugurated, and laid the foundation stone of multiple development projects related to power, rail and road sectors worth more than Rs 56,000 crores. 

According to the Prime Minister's Office, the major focus of the projects is the power sector across the country.

PM Modi addresses public meeting 

Addressing a public meeting, the Prime Minister said,  "They (Opposition) keep talking about elections. Yesterday for the entire day, I sat down with all the ministers, senior secretaries, and officials of the Government of India - the top team of around 125 people. I didn't discuss elections, I elaborately discussed the action plan for the 'Vikst Bharat Nirman'."

PM Modi listed several developmental works undertaken in the past 15 days in the country and said that the work undertaken in the last 15 days to further strengthen Atmanirbhar Bharat to 'Viksit Bharat.  "I would like to show you how the BJP-led central government is celebrating the 'vikas utsav'. In the last 15 days, two IITs, three IIMs and one IIS were inaugurated. Similarly, five AIIMS were inaugurated and the world's largest storage scheme was launched for the farmers," he said.

"BJP is committed to the development of the nation. That is why, even the people of Telangana are saying "abki baar, 400 paar," he said.

The Prime Minister further said that after 2014, the BJP Government at the Centre gave great importance to the development of Telangana and the honour of the tribal community.

"Even after several decades post-independence, the contribution made by the people of Telangana was never given due respect. After 2014, the BJP Government at the Centre gave great importance to the development of Telangana and the honour of the tribal community. Could anyone have imagined that a tribal woman would become the President of the country? Could anyone have imagined that the birth anniversary of Bhagwan Birsa Munda would be celebrated as a national festival? For the development of tribals, BJP Government formed a separate ministry," he said.

NTPC projects

Prime Minister Modi laid the foundation of state-owned power giant NTPC’s various projects worth Rs 30,023 crore.

He also dedicated Unit -2 (800 MW) of NTPC’s Telangana Super Thermal Power Project (Stage-I), located in the Peddapalli district of Telangana. With an investment of Rs 8,007 crore, this project utilises ultra-supercritical technology, ensuring optimal power generation efficiency while significantly reducing CO2 emissions.

The commissioning of this project will not only enhance the power supply in Telangana but also guarantee 24×7 availability of affordable and high-quality power nationwide. "Based on Ultra-Supercritical Technology, the project will supply 85 per cent power to Telangana and will have the highest power generation efficiency of approximately 42 per cent among all power stations of NTPC in India. The foundation stone of the project was also laid by the Prime Minister," the PMO said in a statement.

Other projects PM Modi to dedicate 

Furthermore, the Prime Minister also dedicated Unit-2 (660 MW) of North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project (3×600 MW), situated in Chatra, Jharkhand.

With an investment of Rs 4,609 crore, this is the country's first Supercritical Thermal Power Project conceived with an Air Cooled Condenser (ACC) of such large magnitude which reduces water consumption to 1/3rd in comparison to conventional Water-Cooled Condensers. The commencement of work in this project was flagged off by the Prime Minister.

Further, he laid the foundation stone of the Singrauli Super Thermal Power Project, Stage-III (2x800 MW) in Sonbhadra, Uttar Pradesh, with a total investment of Rs 17,000 crore. The project will highlight India’s strides towards environmental sustainability and technological innovation.

Additionally, PM Modi dedicated a fly ash-based lightweight aggregate plant established at Sipat Super Thermal Power Station in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, with an investment of Rs 51 crore. Using pelletising and sintering technology, the plant mixes fly ash with coal and additives to produce aggregates, thus promoting bulk fly ash utilisation, conserving natural resources and protecting the environment.

The Prime Minister also dedicated the STP Water to the Green Hydrogen Plant established at NTPC NETRA Campus, Greater Noida, with an investment of Rs 10 crore. Green Hydrogen produced from STP water will help in lowering power consumption.

The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of Flue Gas CO2 to 4G Ethanol Plant located at Lara Super Thermal Power Station in Chhattisgarh. With an investment of Rs 294 crore, this innovative plant will draw CO2 from waste flue gas to synthesise 4G-Ethanol, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and advancing towards sustainable aviation fuel.

The foundation stone of seawater to green hydrogen plant was also laid. Situated in NTPC Simhadri with an investment of Rs 30 crore, the project aims to produce Green Hydrogen from seawater, thereby saving energy.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone of the fly ash-based FALG Aggregate Plant established at Korba Super Thermal Power Station, Chhattisgarh. With an investment of Rs 22 crore, the project will demonstrate the conversion of fly ash into value-added building material – coarse aggregates, thus strengthening the commitment towards environmental protection.

The Prime Minister inaugurated seven projects and also laid the foundation stone of one project of the Power Grid Corporation of India. These projects will play a crucial role in strengthening the National Grid.

He also inaugurated the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation’s (NHPC’s) 380 MW Solar Project at Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. Around 792 million units of green power will be generated each year from the project.

PM Modi laid the foundation of Bundelkhand Saur Urja Limited’s (BSUL’s) 1200 MW Jalaun Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Power Park in Jalaun, Uttar Pradesh. The park will generate about 2400 million units of electricity every year.

Prime Minister inaugurated three solar power projects of Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) in Jalaun and Kanpur Dehat in Uttar Pradesh. These projects have a total capacity of 200 MW. Foundation stone of these projects was also laid by the Prime Minister. Prime Minister inaugurated Naitwar Mori Hydro Power station along with an associated transmission line in Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand. Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of two solar projects of SJVN in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh & Dhubri, Assam; and also of 382 MW Sunni Dam Hydro Electric Project in Himachal Pradesh.

Prime Minister laid the foundation of TUSCO's 600 MW Lalitpur Solar Power Project in Lalitpur district of UP. The project envisages generating 1200 million units of green power per year.

Prime Minister inaugurated ReNew's Koppal-Narendra Transmission Scheme for evacuation of  2500 MW power from Renewable Energy. This inter-state transmission scheme is located in Koppal district of Karnataka. Other power sector-related projects of Damodar Valley Corporation and of IndiGrid will also be inaugurated by the Prime Minister.

In addition to the power sector, projects of the road and rail sector were also be taken up during the visit. Prime Minister dedicated the newly electrified Ambari - Adilabad - Pimpalkhuti rail line to the nation.
