This will be built at a cost of Rs 2,280 crore, according to BJP MP G V L Narasimha Rao.
Making a pitch for his government ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the PM said that while the previous governments neglected the state for decades, the NDA government is trying to help in the development of North East.
His first stop will be Guntur in Andhra Pradesh followed by Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu and Hubli in Karnataka. The TDP workers also tried to set ablaze the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi but the police prevented them.
In Andhra Pradesh, Modi will dedicate Visakhapatnam Strategic Petroleum Reserve facility of Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserve Limited (ISPRL) to the nation.
He also laid the foundation stone for the construction of Greenfield Airport at Hollongi.
In Vijayawada, the CPI and the CPI-M organised a demonstration on February 9 protesting the Prime Ministers visit. Referring to "Modi Go Back" protests, PM thanked his rival parties saying that he will indeed go back to Delhi and sit there as Prime Minister for another term of five years.
The prime minister listed out central schemes including recently launched PM Kisan, Ayushman Bharat, Ujjwala Yojana for LPG connection and insurance for workers to counter the opposition's charge that the BJP-led government's policies are not benefiting the people.
"Those who get their photographs clicked in Delhi holding hands...and also in Kolkata...they don't see to each other in Tripura, Kerala or Bengal..."
Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu threw protocol out of the window and didn't show up to receive PM Modi at Gannavaram airport in Vijaywada, underlying that there is no love lost between the BJPand the TDP. "They indicate a lack of integrity and regard within BJP government".
The Telugu Desam Party chief will be on a day-long fast to protest against the alleged non-cooperation of the Centre in fulfilling Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act and Special Status to the state.
