PM Modi dedicates canal network of Nilwande Dam in Maharashtra

Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed Jal Pujan at the Nilwande dam and dedicated the canal network of the dam in Ahmednagar district to the people of Maharashtra on Thursday.

Meanwhile, PM Modi also released the water from the Nilwande Dam.

It also marked the completion of the dam’s 85-km-long left canal, where work was inordinately delayed due to the paucity of funds.
It will benefit the people of 182 villages from 7 Tehsils (6 in Ahmednagar district and 1 from Nashik district) by facilitating pipe distribution networks of water. The idea of Nilwande Dam was first conceived in 1970. It is being developed at a cost of about Rs 5177 crore, it stated.

Earlier today, the Prime Minister also inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of multiple development projects worth about Rs 7,500 crore across various sectors.

PM Modi inaugurated the new Darshan Queue complex at Shirdi. It is a state-of-the-art modern mega building envisaged to provide comfortable waiting areas for the devotees.

It is equipped with several waiting halls with a cumulative seating capacity of more than ten thousand devotees. It has the provision of air-conditioned public amenities like cloakrooms, toilets, booking counters, prasad counters, information centre etc. The foundation stone of this new Darshan Queue Complex was laid by the Prime Minister in October 2018, the Prime Minister’s Office stated.

During the public programme, the Prime Minister also launched the ‘Namo Shetkari Mahasanman Nidhi Yojana’.
The Yojna will benefit more than 86 lakh beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana in Maharashtra, by providing an additional amount of Rs 6000 per year to them.

Later in the day, the Prime Minister will visit Goa to inaugurate the 37th National Games.
