Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to embark on a two-day visit to Gujarat, where he will inaugurate several key projects. The visit, starting on Saturday, will see the Prime Minister inaugurate a four-lane cable-stayed bridge between Okha and Beyt Dwarka in Devbhumi Dwarka district. The Prime Minister will also hold a road show in Jamnagar on Sunday.

In a significant development for the healthcare sector, PM Modi will launch the state’s first All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Rajkot on Sunday. This was confirmed by State Health Minister Rushikesh Patel on Friday. The Rajkot AIIMS is one of five such institutes that the Prime Minister will dedicate to the nation on February 25.

The Rajkot AIIMS, spread across 201 acres, is a world-class hospital with 720 beds, including ICU and super-speciality beds. The Prime Minister will inaugurate 23 operation theatres, a 30-bed AYUSH block, and 250 beds of the in-patient department (IPD). The remaining beds will be made available gradually. The hospital, built at a cost of Rs 1,195 crore, has already served nearly 1.44 lakh patients through its out-patient department (OPD).

During his visit, the Prime Minister will also virtually inaugurate four other newly-built AIIMS, located in Mangalagiri (Andhra Pradesh), Bathinda (Punjab), Rae Bareli (Uttar Pradesh), and Kalyani (West Bengal). These five super-speciality hospitals, including the one in Rajkot, have been built by the Centre at a cost of Rs 6,300 crore.

PM Modi will also inaugurate and perform ground-breaking for projects worth Rs 48,000 crore of different state and Central departments, such as NHAI, Railways, Energy and Petrochemicals, Road and Building, Ports and Health and Family Welfare. Of these, projects worth Rs 35,700 crore are for Gujarat, while the remaining are for other states.

The Prime Minister will launch key projects, including power generation projects in Kutch, ground-breaking for the new Mundra Panipat crude-oil pipeline project, a new cardiology hospital in Vadodara, and doubling of the Rajkot-Surendranagar railway line, among others.

On Sunday morning, he will offer prayers at the Shri Beyt Dwarkadhish Mandir and then inaugurate the four-lane cable-stayed bridge between Okha and Beyt Dwarka island. The bridge, known as ‘Signature Bridge’, has been renamed as ‘Sudarshan Setu’ or Sudarshan Bridge. The construction of the bridge will allow devotees visiting the temple at Beyt Dwarka to travel at all times, officials said.

In addition, the Prime Minister will visit Dwarka town and offer prayers at the Dwarkadhish temple before addressing a large gathering nearby. From the venue, he will inaugurate or perform ground-breaking of several projects in Jamnagar, Devbhumi Dwarka, and Porbandar districts. These projects include the electrification of a 533 km long railway line and the inauguration of two offshore pipelines of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas at Vadinar. The Prime Minister’s visit is expected to bring significant development and progress to the state of Gujarat.
