Modi Inaugurates India's Longest Tunnel

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inagurated India's longest tunnel, which reduces travel time between the two state capitals of Jammu and Srinagar by two hours. The 10.9 km long Chenani-Nashri tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar highway will save the fuel worth nearly Rs 99 crores a year.

 

 

"It is a matter of great pride for the people of Jammu and Kashmir that this great tunnel is being dedicated to the nation by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi – the most popular PM. It is dedicated to the nation in keeping with his call for a new India," Union Minister of State in PMO, Jitendra Singh told reporters earlier on Sunday.

 

He added, "It is a revolution itself. It is a revolution to be watched and studied. It is a case study itself. It is a wonderful creation."
