PM Modi in Kolkata: PM unveils India's 1st underwater Metro route, other projects of ₹15,400 crore

Prime Minister Modi on Wednesday, March 6, inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of various projects worth ₹15,400 crore in Kolkata as part of his 10-day visit to 12 states and union territories

Last week, PM Modi visited West Bengal where he addressed two rallies in Hooghly's Arambagh and Nadia's Krishnanagar.

During his address, he slammed the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over "atrocities on women" in Sandeshkhali, saying that the “entire country is seething with anger over the issue”

He also called upon people to ensure TMC's defeat in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

PM Modi inaugurated the Howrah Maidan-Esplanade section of Kolkata Metro's East-West corridor, signalling India's first venture into underwater Metro services.

According to an official release, the 4.8-km stretch of the East-West Metro has been built at a cost of ₹4,965 crore and will have the deepest Metro station in India at Howrah - 30 metres below the ground level. 

The corridor will help connect key areas such as the IT hub Salt Lake Sector V.
