PM for having one redevelopment project of railway stations in each state

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today took stock of the comprehensive redevelopment projects of railway stations and suggested to all Chief Secretaries to work towards at least one such redevelopment project in each state. 'Such redeveloped railway stations would become iconic structures and centres of economic activity,' said the Prime Minister, who was chairing his tenth interaction through PRAGATI -- the ICT-based, multi-modal platform for Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation. He reviewed the scheme for upgrade of campuses of National Institutes of Fashion Technology (NIFTs), and for setting up of grid connected solar power projects in government organisations, CPSUs and ordnance factories and asked all Chief Secretaries to work towards speedy implementation of solar power projects in their respective states. Reviewing the complaints and grievances from people relating to the Road Transport and Highways ministry, Mr Modi directed all concerned officials to expedite their redressal. In the course of his review, the Prime Minister monitored the progress of vital infrastructure projects in the road, railway, coal, power and renewable energy sectors, spread over several states, including Mizoram, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Delhi as well as the union territory of Chandigarh. Assessing the work completed on the Char-Dham road connectivity improvement project in Uttarakhand, the Prime Miniser called for expediting the work at the earliest. On the programme for elimination of Kala Azar, he called for all efforts to eradicate the disease at the earliest. He also reviewed 'Mission Indradhanush' and emphasised the need for an organised and aggressive action plan to cover all children for immunisation in a specific time-frame, an official release here said.
