Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his visit to Arunachal Pradesh on February 9, 2019, is set to announce the state 100 percent electrified.
The PM will be in the North Eastern state to launch several projects and place the foundation of several imperative schemes in Arunachal. Modi is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of a Greenfield airport at Hollongi.
The striving airport project in the state has been pending for quite a few years due to controversies over site selection. Arunachal Pradesh is the only state in the country devoid of a full-fledged airport.
The prime minister will also launch a retrofitted airport at Tezu in Lohit district besides a 110 MW hydroelectric project, Arun Prabha channel of Doordarshan and 50 health and wellness centres in the state.
Modi will also lay the foundation stone of a Film and Television Institute at Jote, near here and seven electric substations under Comprehensive Scheme, the officials said.
He would lay the foundation stone of Sella Tunnel and its advance road in Tawang district besides the declaration of 100 percent household electrification in the state under the Saubhagya Scheme. All the inauguration and foundation stone laying ceremony would be held from Indira Gandhi Park, as per sources.
