Modi@3 Opens India’s Largest Bridge Named After Bhupen Hazarika
PM Modi inaugurated the Dhola-Sadiya bridge on the day he completes 3 years in office.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government completes three years in power on Friday after its thumping victory in 2014, which saw the ouster of the Congress-led UPA government.
Modi, who is on a day-long visit to Assam, kickstarted the celebrations lined up for the day by inaugurating the country’s longest river bridge – the Dhola-Sadiya bridge, which is around 9.15 km-long.
Speaking after the inauguration of the Dhola-Sadiya bridge, PM Modi said that the bridge will be named after the “son of the soil” and music legend Bhupen Hazarika. He said the people of Assam should have had access to the bridge “10 years back”, but was delayed due to the change in government.
He further spoke on connecting the Northeastern region with the rest of the country via infrastructural facilities that include railways and roads.
