Speed up stranded projects: PM to states


Narendra ModiPrime Minister, Narendra Modi, on Wednesday flagged four projects which have been held up due to land acquisition issues, for fast implementation. The freed four projects are the airport in Mumbai, Bangalore Metro, a pipeline in West Bengal and a rail-cum road bridge over the Ganga River in Patna. The PM also asked the railway to make an outline for a second round of connectivity with the North-East. This will allow easier flow of grains and goods to North-Eastern states. PM also considered stranded projects under the newly launched Pragati initiative, and promised that the agriculture ministry is preparing a plan to handle the impact of unseasonal rains in the states. Sources said that PM asked UP chief secretary to fast-track the land acquisition process for road projects and also to sign the state support agreement for carrying out such works. Modi also asked the environment secretary to look in to the aspects of granting green clearances for road, highway and other infrastructure projects.
