PM Modi in Manipur
In Manipur, Prime Minister Modi will lay the foundation stone for nine projects costing over Rs 2950 crores and will inaugurate 13 projects for around Rs 1850 crores. These initiatives span a variety of fields, including road infrastructure, drinking water supply, health, urban development, housing, information technology, skill development, and art and culture.
The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the building of five National Highway Projects worth over Rs 1700 crore, as part of a countrywide initiative to boost connectivity. The development of these highways, which total more than 110 kilometres in length, will be a significant step toward improving the region's transportation connection.
The construction of the Steel Bridge across the Barak River on NH-37, which cost over Rs 75 crore and would improve year-round connection to Silchar from Imphal and lessen traffic congestion, is another key infrastructure project. During the programme, the Prime Minister will dedicate this steel bridge.
PM Modi will also dedicate 2,387 mobile towers erected at a cost of roughly Rs 1100 crores to the people of Manipur. This will be a significant step toward increasing the state's mobile connectivity.

He will then dedicate the newly renovated and reconstructed Govindajee Temple in Imphal. PM Modi will also lay the foundation stone for the Indian National Army (INA) facility in Moirang, which will commemorate the INA's pivotal role in India's independence struggle.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for two projects totaling Rs. 36 crore: the 'Mega Handloom Cluster' in NongpokKakching, Imphal East District, which will benefit about 17,000 weavers, and the 'Craft and Handloom Village' in Moirang, which will assist weaving households, harness the tourism potential of Moirang and the adjoining Loktak Lake, and create jobs for the local people.

PM Modi in Tripura
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the state to inaugurate the Maharaja Bir Bikram (MBB) Airport's New Integrated Terminal Building and will launch two significant initiatives: the Mukhyamantri Tripura Gram Samriddhi Yojana and Vidyajyoti Schools' Project Mission 100.
The Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport's New Integrated Terminal Building, which cost around Rs 450 crore to construct, is a state-of-the-art structure with modern facilities and is supported by the newest IT network integrated system.
Project Mission 100 of Vidyajyoti Schools aims to improve the state's educational level by transforming 100 existing high/higher secondary schools into Vidyajyoti Schools with state-of-the-art facilities and high-quality education. The project will benefit around 1.2 lakh kids from Nursery to Class XII and will cost approximately Rs 500 crores over the next three years.
The Mukhyamantri Tripura Gram Samriddhi Yojana intends to raise the bar for service delivery in key development areas at the village level. Household tap connections, home power connections, all-weather roads, functioning toilets for every household, recommended immunisation for every kid, and engagement of women in Self-Help Groups are among the key sectors chosen for this Yojana. The initiative would incentivize villages for meeting benchmark service delivery criteria in several sectors, and it is designed to foster healthy competition among villages to improve service delivery at the grassroot level.
