    Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated Kanpur Metro Rail Project on 28 December. He inspected the Kanpur Metro Rail Project and undertook a metro ride from the IIT metro station to Geeta Nagar. He also inaugurated the Bina-Panki Multiproduct Pipeline Project. The pipeline extends from the Bina refinery in Madhya Pradesh to Panki in Kanpur and will help the region access petroleum products from the Bina refinery. Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath, Union Minister Shri Hardeep Puri were among those present on the occasion.

The Prime Minister noted the change of the image for the state of Uttar Pradesh. A state, he said, that was known for illegal arms is now the hub of the Defence Corridor, contributing to the safety and security of the country. Commenting on the work culture of adhering to deadlines, the Prime Minister said that double engine governments work day and night to complete the work for which the foundation stones have been laid. “Our government laid the foundation stone of Kanpur Metro, our government is also dedicating it. Our government laid the foundation stone of Purvanchal Expressway, our own government completed its work”, Shri Modi clarified. He listed major achievements like upcoming largest international airport in Uttar Pradesh, longest expressway of the country is also getting built in the state and Dedicated Freight Corridor hub coming up in Uttar Pradesh.

The Prime Minister stressed that before the year 2014, the total length of the Metro running in Uttar Pradesh was 9 km. Between 2014 and 2017, the length of the metro increased to a total of 18 km. If we include Kanpur Metro today, the length of the metro in the state has now exceeded 90 km, he said.

The Double Engine Government is working sincerely and with accountability to take Uttar Pradesh to new heights of development. The double engine government knows how to set big goals and how to achieve them. He gave examples of improvement in transmission, electricity situation, cleanliness of cities and rivers. He informed, compared to the mere 2.5 lakh houses for urban poor of the state by 2014, 17 lakh houses have been approved in the last four and half years. Similarly street vendors got Government attention for the first time and through PM Svanidhi Yojna, more than 7 lakh people got more than 700 crore rupees in the state. During the pandemic the government arranged for free ration for more than 15 crore citizens in the state. In 2014 there were just 14 crore LPG connections in the country. Now there are more than 30 crore. In Uttar Pradesh only, 1.60 crore families got new LPG connections.
