PM Narendra Modi recently dedicated to the nation two new LPG cooking gas bottling plants, at Champaran and Banka in Bihar, along with the Durgapur-Banka section of the Paradip-Haldia-Durgapur LPG pipeline through a video link.

Among the other dignitaries who joined him on the occasion were  Nitish Kumar,  Chief Minister of Bihar;  Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas and Steel; and Sushil Modi,  Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.

Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated that the Government of India is committed to ushering in a new era of progress in the state of Bihar. He mentioned that the PM package given for Bihar included 10 major projects related to petroleum and gas and about Rs. 21,000 crore was to be spent on these projects. He also shared that the work on seven such projects has already been completed.

The Prime Minister said that the infrastructural development has been one of the key focus areas in the PM’s Bihar Package. Expressing his happiness over the timely completion of the 193-km long Durgapur-Banka LPG pipeline section, Sri Modi said “I had laid the foundation stone for this project less than 1.5 years back. I am told that the completion of this stretch of the pipeline was extremely challenging as this pipeline navigates 10 major rivers, approximately 10 km stretch of the forest, and very hostile, rocky, and undulating terrain. This is indeed a salute to the innovative engineering practices as well as active support of the State and Central Governments that this project has come through in time and will immensely benefit the citizens”.
