The steel plant in Nagarnar is poised to create numerous employment opportunities, both in the plant itself and in associated ancillary and downstream industries. It is expected to put Bastar on the global steel industry map and contribute to the socio-economic development of the region.

Enhancing Rail Connectivity

During his visit, PM Modi also dedicated a new rail line between Antagarh and Taroki and launched a rail line doubling project between Jagdalpur and Dantewara. These rail projects are set to improve connectivity in tribal areas of Chhattisgarh, benefiting local communities and fostering economic growth.

Road Infrastructure Upgrades

Additionally, the Prime Minister laid the foundation stone for the Boridand-Surajpur rail line doubling project and the redevelopment of Jagdalpur Station under the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme. He flagged off the Taroki–Raipur DEMU Train Service, further enhancing transportation options in the region.

Improved Road Connectivity

PM Modi also inaugurated a road upgrading project from ‘Kunkuri to Chhattisgarh-Jharkhand Border section’ of National Highway-43, aimed at improving road connectivity and benefiting the people of the region.

These development projects not only enhance infrastructure but also have significant socio-economic implications for Chhattisgarh. Moreover, they hold political significance as the state is among five that will hold elections by the end of the year, with the BJP aiming to unseat the Congress government in power since 2018.
