PM Modi inaugurates three petroleum projects in Bihar
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday dedicated three petroleum sector projects in poll-bound Bihar to the nation.
These projects that will help meet the demand for domestic cooking gas in the state include state-run Indian Oil Corporation’s 193-km long Durgapur-Banka section of the Paradip-Haldia-Durgapur liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) pipeline that will supply cooking gas for bottling at the new Banka plant in the state.
Apart from the pipeline and the bottling plant at Banka, PM Modi also dedicated state-run Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd’ LPG bottling plant at Harsidhi in East Champaran district through video conferencing, that was also attended by the state’ chief minister Nitish Kumar.
With the critical Bihar state assembly elections on the anvil, there has been a flurry of announcements and inaugurations for and from the state. Last Thursday, PM Modi launched initiatives related to animal husbandry and fisheries in Bihar; including the ₹20,050 crore Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) and the e-Gopala mobile app.
