Prime Minister Narendra Modi is launching his dream project in Varanasi on Monday. On this occasion, PM is giving a compensation of Rs 2400 crore to his parliamentary constituency. After becoming an MP, Narendra Modi has come to Varanasi for 14 times. During this time, he will launch projects worth thousands of crores. He will also inaugurate and lay the foundation stones of several urban development and electricity-related projects. The Prime Minister’s announcements are also expected to underscore his government’s plans regarding cleaning of Ganga. An official of National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) said eight projects at the cost of Rs 913.07 crore have been sanctioned for Varanasi under Namami Gange programme.

“In addition, sewerage projects worth Rs 703.14 crore have been taken up under AMRUT  and JNNURM schemes which include a sewerage network in the trans-Varuna area, a 120 million litres per day (MLD) sewage treatment plant (STP) at Goitha and house service connections, among others,” the official added.

Prime minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for a sewage management project at Ramnagar worth Rs 72.91 crore. The town currently generates an estimated 300 MLD sewage, which is expected to increase to 400 MLD by year 2035. At present, the three operational STPs have 102 MLD treatment capacity, said officials.
