Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be inaugurating Saryu Nahar National Project in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur district. The project is worth Rs. 9,800 crore and aims at providing water for irrigation of over 14 lakh hectares of land and benefit around 29 lakh farmers of more than 6,200 villages, according to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). It will benefit nine districts in the region – Bahraich, Shravasti, Gonda, Balrampur, Siddharthnagar, Basti, Sant Kabir Nagar, Gorakhpur, and Maharajganj.

Prime Minister Modi will visit Balrampur, Uttar Pradesh, and inaugurate the Saryu Nahar National Project on December 11 at around 1 PM, the PMO said in a statement on Friday.

Out of the total cost of Rs 9,800 crore, 4,600 crores was provisioned in the last four years. It will also interlink five rivers -Ghaghara, Saryu, Rapti, Banganga, and Rohini for optimum usage of water resources of the region.

The farmers of nine districts will now immensely benefit from the upgraded irrigation potential. They were the worst sufferers of the inordinate delay in the project. They will now be able to grow crops on a larger scale and maximize the agri-potential of the region.

The PMO said although work on the project began in 1978, it was delayed due to lack of continuity of budgetary support, interdepartmental coordination, and adequate monitoring and was not completed even after more than four decades.

The project was only settled after PM Modi’s government took active measures to complete it, said the release.

“A project that was incomplete for four decades has been finished in four years,” PM Modi tweeted.

When the Prime Minister inaugurates the Saryu Nahar National Project on Saturday at Balrampur in Uttar Pradesh, protesting farmers will be returning to their villages from the Delhi border as a result of the peasants’ unions calling off their year-long agitation against the now-repealed farm laws.

It shows the farmers’ trust in the Bharatiya Janata Party government, a BJP leader told Hindustan Times, adding that functionaries have been mobilized to make the inauguration program successful.
