PM Modi said, "The development of Rajasthan is the biggest priority for the Central government", added, “Centre has focussed on development of modern infrastructure like expressways, highways and railways in Rajasthan".

To promote the gas-based economy, PM Modi dedicated the Mehsana-Bhatinda-Gurdaspur Gas Pipeline to the poll-bound state.

"The work of laying out the gas pipelines across the country is in the process of strengthening a gas-based economy. This pipeline will help in the expansion of industries in Rajasthan and will bring thousands of employment opportunities," Modi said in Chittorgarh.


According to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), the pipeline has been built at a cost of about 4500 crores. Prime Minister will also dedicate the LPG Plant of HPCL at Abu Road. This plant will bottle and distribute 86 lakh cylinders per annum and will also result in a net reduction in the running of trucks carrying cylinders per annum by around 0.75 million Km, which will help reduce about 0.5 million tons of Carbon emission per annum.

The Prime Minister also made announcements boosting Rajastha's tourism sector. He said, "We are boosting tourism centres by creating more cultural centres here. Inauguration of new projects will generate employment".
