Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday visited Haldia in West Bengal and dedicated to the nation the LPG import terminal, 350 km Dobhi-Durgapur Pipeline section, which is part of the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga project.
Prime Minister said that the new pipeline will directly benefit not only West Bengal but also 10 districts of Bihar and Jharkhand. This will also provide clean piped LPG to the kitchens and enable clean CNG vehicles. Sindri and Durgapur Fertilizer factories will get continuous gas supply. The Prime Minister asked GAIL and West Bengal government to quickly finish Durgapur-Haldia section of Jagdishpur-Haldia and Bokaro-Dhamra Pipeline.
A 4 Lane ROB-cum-Flyover at Ranichak, Haldia on NH 41 was also dedicated to the nation.
Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone of the second Catalytic-Isodewaxing unit of Haldia Refinery which will reduce the country’s dependence on import with regard to lube-based oils.
Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister said that the four projects will improve both ease of living and ease of doing business in the region. These projects will also help Haldia to grow into a major hub of export-import.
