PM Modi will lay the foundation stone and inaugurate several railway projects worth over Rs 8,000 crore in Odisha through video conferencing on Thursday.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the redevelopment of Puri and Cuttack railway stations. The redeveloped stations will have all modern facilities to provide a world-class experience to rail passengers, said a PMO statement. The Prime Minister will dedicate 100 per cent electrification of the rail network in Odisha. This will reduce operation and maintenance cost and reduce dependence on imported crude oil.
