Solution to all problems lies in development, says PM Modi

Hyderabad, Aug. 7 (ANI): The solution to all the problems lies in development, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing a public meeting here on Sunday afternoon.

The prime Minister, whoo was on his maiden visit to the state after assuming office, said the Centre was working in tandem with the states to take the nation to new heights.

"The centre and the states are working shoulder to shoulder to take the nation to new heights of progress," he said.

Talking about unavailability of drinking water in the state and its conservation, Prime Minister Modi said, "Whenever CM KCR ( Telengana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao) has met me, he has spoke about the state's development and about water related issues. Sadly, we only realise the importance of water when there is no access to it. As citizens it is our duty to conserve water."

Stating that reforms have taken place in the power sector, the Prime Minister said, "You all were asking about a rail line and today the Shilanyas for that has happened. We are linking economic development and rail connectivity."

"Besides, shilanyas (foundation stone) for the first fertiliser plant in the state happened. The state didn't have one earlier and this did not augur well for the farmer," he added.

Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the first phase of 'Mission Bhageeratha' programme, a flagship programme to supply drinking water to each household in Gajwel Assembly constituency in the state.

In Hyderabad, the prime minister unveiled the pylon that marks implementation of Mission Bhageeratha and also laid foundation stone for the 1,600 MW thermal power station at Ramagu dam in Karimnagar from Komatibanda through remote control.

He unveiled the foundation stone for revival of Ramagundam Fertiliser Plant being set up at Ramagundam.

Earlier, the Prime Minister dedicated a 1,200 MW power project set up by Singareni Collieries to the nation.

Union Information Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu, Power Minister Piyush Goel Fertiliser Minister Anantha Kumar, and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu were also present at the events.

Prime Minister Modi will take part in a BJP workers' meeting at L.B. Stadium here in the evening.

Earlier, Rao welcomed the Prime Minister to the programme, saying "Thank PM @narendramodi ji on behalf of Telangana people for accepting the invitation to inaugurate development projects."

"Observing two years of governance under your leadership, I can confidently say this is a completely corruption-free rule. Remember, the day I shared dias with you at Ludhiana in 2009 where you assured that Telangana movement will reach its goal," Telangana CMO tweeted Rao as saying. (ANI)
