Pune Metro Project’s Phase-1 was a longstanding dream of the people of Pune. Glad that the Bhumipujan of the project was performed: Modi
Modi also laid the foundation for a Rs 3,600-crore grand memorial for Shivaji Maharaj off the Mumbai city coast, an event that comes a few months ahead of the civic polls and amid tussle among parties to claim the legacy of the 17th century warrior king.
“I had said during the 2014 Maharashtra assembly elections that the state, which was stuck in a trench for 15 years, needed a double engine -one ‘Delhi engine’ and one ‘Maharashtra government engine’.

“I am confident the nation will progress,” he said after performing the ground breaking ceremony of the metro project here.
