ODI PM Narendra Modi to inaugurate Saryu Nahar National Project in UP’s Balrampur today

The swift work on the Saryu Nahar National Project during the last four years is in line with our Government’s commitment to complete long-pending projects and also harness our water resources for the benefit of our farmers and to further ‘Ease of Living'," PM Modi tweeted.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Saryu Nahar National Project on Saturday (December 11, 2021) in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur at around 1 pm.

As per the release issued by the Prime Minister`s Office (PMO), the work on the project started in 1978 but due to lack of continuity of budgetary support, interdepartmental coordination and adequate monitoring, it got delayed and was not completed even after nearly four decades.

“Prime Minister`s vision for farmer welfare and empowerment, and his commitment to prioritize long pending projects of national importance, brought much-needed focus on the project,” PMO stated.

Earlier, on Friday, the prime minister took it to Twitter to announce his presence in Uttar Pradesh today and wrote, “I would be in Balrampur, Uttar Pradesh tomorrow, 11th December for a very special programme- the inauguration of the Saryu Nahar National Project. This project will solve irrigation-related problems in Eastern UP and help our hardworking farmers.”
