Phase I of the Ahmedabad Metro rail project was inaugurated on Friday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He conversed with other passengers and students while riding the subway. The new Vande Bharat Express train was flagged off by the Prime Minister earlier today in Gandhinagar.

In addition to performing Darshan and Pooja at the Ambaji Temple, Prime Minister Modi will dedicate other projects totaling more than Rs 7,200 crore and lay the cornerstone for them in Ambaji. He would thereafter go to Gabbar Tirtha to see Maha Aarti.

The PM Awas Yojana programme in Ambaji includes laying the cornerstone for more than 45,000 homes. Additionally, as part of the PRASAD initiative, Prime Minister Modi will lay the cornerstone for the construction of the Taranga Hill – Ambaji – Abu Road New Broad Gauge Line and of pilgrimage facilities at the Ambaji Temple.

The new rail line is anticipated to assist thousands of pilgrims who travel to Ambaji, one of the 51 Shakti Peethas, and will improve the pilgrims’ worship experiences at all of these holy sites. The development of the runway and related infrastructure at Air Force Station, Deesa, as well as the Ambaji Bypass Road are among the other projects for which the foundation stone will be set.

The 13-km-long New Palanpur-New Chatodar Section and the 62-km-long New Palanpur-New Mahesana Section of the Western Freight Dedicated Corridor will also be dedicated by Prime Minister Modi (Palanpur bypass line). It will improve connectivity to Mundra, Pipavav, and other Gujarati ports as well as the Deendayal Port Authority (Kandla).
