His Excellency President Vladimir Putin,

Honourable Jayalalithaa ji, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu,

Minister Sushma Swaraj ji,

Minister Pon Radhakrishnan,

My Dear Friends.

Namaskar

Vanakkam.

Today is indeed a special day.

Today, Excellency Putin and I have the honour to dedicate Kudankulam nuclear power plant unit-1.

I am particularly grateful to President Putin for his presence at this event.

And, I am delighted that Jayalalithaa ji, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is also present with us on this occasion.

Friends,

In dedicating Kudankulum 1, we mark another historic step in India-Russia relations.

Its successful completion is not just another fine example of the strength of our special and privileged Strategic Partnership.

It is also a celebration of our abiding friendship.

And, it is only a start of our collaboration in this field.

It is perhaps not commonly known that at 1000 Mega Watt, Kundankulum 1 is the largest single unit of electrical power in India.

In years ahead, we are determined to pursue an ambitious agenda of nuclear power generation.

At Kudankulum alone, five more units of 1000 Mega Watt each are planned.

In our journey of cooperation, we plan to build a series of bigger nuclear power units.

Friends,

Today's event is also a joyful occasion for the team of Indian and Russian engineers, scientists and technicians.

We salute their dedication and hard work and congratulate them for the fruits of their labour.

Friends,

The story of human development has been of wide spread technological advancement and growing economic prosperity.

But, as we all know, it has not been without burden on our environment.

I have a vision for India where achievements of our economic development are respectful to mother earth.

And, where the engines of our industrial growth are increasingly driven by clean energy.

Kundankulum 1 is an important addition to India's continuing efforts to scale up production of clean energy in India.

It also signals our joint commitment to build pathways of partnership for green growth.

Excellency President Putin,

The success of our joint efforts in nuclear power generation is a proud achievement of our cooperation.

It demonstrates our common resolve to keep our ties firm and steady.

Above all, it showcases your personal commitment, consistent support and strong leadership in transforming the substance and character of our relationship.

For this, I am grateful to you Mr. President.

The people of India associate naturally and with great ease with the people of your great country.

And, personally, I have always deeply valued our friendship.

It is, therefore, only fitting that today we join together to dedicate the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant Unit-1 to the strength and vigour of our friendship and cooperation.

Long live Indo-Russian friendship!

I once again thank you Excellency Putin for joining me in this dedication.

Also, my sincere thanks to Jayalalithaa ji for being with us.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

“Decision on Air India will give new energy to the Aviation sector of India”

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated Kushinagar International Airport today.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said that India is the centre of the faith of Buddhist society around the world. He termed the facility of Kushinagar International Airport, launched today as a tribute to their devotion. This region, the Prime Minister said, is witness to the entire journey from the enlightenment of Lord Buddha to Mahaparinirvana. Today this important region is getting directly connected to the world, he said.

The Prime Minister highlighted the special focus on the development of the places associated with Lord Buddha through better connectivity and the creation of facilities for the devotees. The Prime Minister welcomed the Sri Lankan flight and delegation that landed at Kushinagar. Paying tribute to Maharshi Valmiki on his Jayanti today, the Prime Minister said that the country is marching on the path of Sabka Vikas with the help of Sabka Satha and Sabka Prayas. “Development of Kushinagar is one of the key priorities of the UP and central governments,” He said.

The Prime Minister said that tourism in all its forms, whether for faith or for leisure, needs modern infrastructure complete with rail, road, airways, waterways, hotels, hospitals, internet connectivity, hygiene, sewage treatment and renewable energy ensuring a clean environment. “All these are interconnected and it is important to work on all these simultaneously. Today's 21st century India is moving ahead with this approach only”, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister announced that under the UDAN scheme, more than 900 new routes have been approved in the last few years, out of which air service has already started on more than 350 routes. More than 50 new airports or those which were not in service earlier, have been made operational.

The Prime Minister highlighted the development regarding the aviation sector in Uttar Pradesh as air connectivity is constantly improving in the state. In Uttar Pradesh, 8 airports are already functional before Kushinagar airport. Work is on Jewar International Airport after Lucknow, Varanasi and Kushinagar. Apart from that, airport projects are going on in Ayodhya, Aligarh, Azamgarh, Chitrakoot, Moradabad and Shravasti.

Referring to the recent decision on Air India, the Prime Minister remarked that the step will help in running the country's aviation sector professionally and prioritizing convenience and safety. “This step will give new energy to the aviation sector of India. One such major reform is related to the opening of defence airspace for civil use”, he added. This step will reduce the distance on various air routes. The Prime Minister also conveyed that the recently launched drone policy is going to bring life-changing transformation in the fields ranging from agriculture to health, to disaster management to defence.

The Prime Minister said recently launched PM Gatishakti - National Master Plan will not only improve governance but also ensure that all modes of transport such as road, rail, air etc should support each other and increase each other's capacity.
