Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrates his 72nd birthday today. On September 17, 1950, he was born. For the past eight years, Modi has been in charge of the nation. Prior to that, he served continuously as Gujarat’s chief minister from 2001 to 2014. He accomplished several of these projects while serving as Chief Minister and Prime Minister, for which he will always be known.
These initiatives include the Mahatma Mandir, Central Vista, Sabarmati Riverfront, Statue of Unity, and Kashi Vishwanath Corridor.
Kashi Vishwanath Corridor
One of PM Modi’s fantasy projects is the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor. The government began work on this project in July 2020. Rs 600 crore in total expenses were incurred on this. It was constructed on a 5 lakh square metre space.
Statue of Unity
In his capacity as CM, PM Modi introduced this project in October 2010. It was constructed in memory of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the nation’s first home minister. The Statue of Unity was constructed with iron implements donated by farmers around the nation. The project’s construction began on October 31, 2013, and Prime Minister Modi inaugurated it on October 31, 2018.
Central Vista Redevelopment Project
A new Parliament building is being built, Duty Path (Rajpath) is being beautified, and several government buildings are being renovated as part of the Central Vista Redevelopment Project. Near India Gate, a statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose has been erected underneath here. The Central Vista Project is expected to cost Rs 20,000 crore.
The 34-acre Mahatma Mandir serves as India’s largest conference center. The absence of pillars in this 15 000-person capacity auditorium is what makes it unique. Its roof is a glass cone that weighs 6.5 pounds.
Another significant accomplishment of PM Modi while serving as Chief Minister is the Sabarmati Riverfront. Its initial design was presented in 1964. But after Narendra Modi appointed him as the CM, work on it began in 2005. In 2012, it became accessible to the general public.
