Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a gift of 11 thousand crores to Himachal Pradesh. PM Modi inaugurated and laid foundation stone of several hydroelectric projects in Mandi. A project pending for nearly three decades will prove beneficial for Delhi as well. With this, about 500 million cubic meters of water will be supplied every year.

Wearing a long woolen coat and hand gloves amidst the chilly weather, Modi presided over the second groundbreaking ceremony of the Himachal Pradesh Global Investors Meet. It is expected to boost investment in the sector through the launch of projects worth around Rs 28,000 crore during this period. The first ceremony was held in the state capital in December 2019 amidst the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. About 100 investors were present on this occasion. State Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur welcomed the Prime Minister by presenting him a Himachali cap and shawl. In the programs between the recitation of Sanskrit shlokas, mention was made of the completion of four years of the BJP government.

The Prime Minister has consistently focused on fully utilizing the untapped potential of the available resources in the country and a step in this regard is to maximize the use of hydroelectric potential in the Himalayan region, an official statement said. The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of Renukaji Dam Project. This project, pending for nearly three decades, was made possible through the Prime Minister’s vision of ‘cooperative federalism’, bringing together six states – Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Delhi. The 40 MW project will be constructed at a cost of around Rs 7,000 crore. It will generate electricity for the hill state and supply 500 million cubic meters of water per year to the national capital.

The Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone of Luhri Phase 1 Hydroelectric Project. The 210 MW project will be constructed at a cost of over Rs 1,800 crore. This will lead to the generation of more than 750 million units of electricity per year. Modern and reliable grid support will also prove beneficial for the states around the region. Modi also laid the foundation stone of Dhaulasiddh Hydro Power Project. This will be the first hydroelectric project of Hamirpur district. The 66 MW project will be constructed at a cost of over Rs 680 crore. This will generate more than 300 million units of electricity per year.

The Prime Minister inaugurated the Sawara-Kuddu Hydroelectric Project. The 111 MW project has been constructed at a cost of about Rs 2,080 crore. This will generate more than 380 million units of electricity per year and will help the state generate revenue of more than Rs 120 crore annually. Apart from hydropower, the economy of the hill state largely depends on tourism and horticulture.
