Narendra Modi launches Saryu canal project

Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has criticized his opponents for taking false credit for developmental works.

Speaking at a public function after launching the Saryu canal project in Balrampur with a project cost of Rs. 9,800 crore, the Prime Minister said that “ I am waiting that somebody will claim that they will laid the foundation stone for this project”.

"When I started from Delhi, I was waiting since morning ki kab koi aayega aur kahega (when will somebody come and say) ... we laid the foundation stone for this project. Some people do this out of habit, maybe they cut the ribbon for this project in their youth. Some people's priority is 'imagination', our priority is execution," the Prime Minister said in a public meeting.

"It is the nature of some people only to cut ribbons and then forget about the work. It may be true that they have cut the ribbon of project years or decades ago, but that is all they do - cut ribbons. Our nature in the 'double-engine ki sarkaar' is to complete the work and deliver the projects on time," the Prime Minister said.

Prime Minister has called the good works of Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat. He said that “the death of India's first Chief of Defence Staff is a huge loss for every patriot of the country. The entire country witnessed General Rawat's efforts in making the forces Atma-Nirbhar (self-reliant)."

"The death of "India is mourning but we won't pause... we won't stop progressing," the Prime Minister added.
