Monday, 17 June 2024 | PNS | Ujjain

Chief Minister Mohan Yadav emphasized that the PM Shri Religious Tourism Heli Service signifies more than just facilitating travel to Mahakaleshwar and Omkareshwar. It stands as a commitment to unite devotees from across the country and the world towards the Jyotirlingas, the epitome of our faith. Today, we all partake in this momentous occasion with joy. Dr. Yadav extended his gratitude to the esteemed Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, as the Government of India has sanctioned the construction of an airport in Ujjain. Dr. Yadav said this during his address at the launch event of the PM Shri Religious Tourism Heli Service held at Police Lines in Ujjain.

In the program, Chief Minister Dr. Yadav flagged off the helicopter under the PM Shri Religious Tourism Heli Service and intiated the air service. Chief Minister Dr. Yadav distributed tickets to the first passenger under the heli service, Smt. Disha Singh and her family, who came from Mumbai. In the first phase, this air service has been started from Bhopal to Ujjain and Omkareshwar and from Indore to Ujjain Omkareshwar routes. For the convenience of devotees, the facility of booking this service has been made available on IRCTC.

Chief Minister Dr. Yadav said that the expansion of air service in the state will continue. The number of helicopters will be increased further in the coming days with which 16 passengers each will be able to avail the air service. Maihar, Datia, Orchha, and other religious, tourist, and historical places of worship in the state will also be connected by air travel.

During the program, MP Anil Firojia, MLA Ujjain North Anil Jain Kaluhera, MLA Satish Malviya, Mayor Mukesh Tatwal, Vivek Joshi, Bahadur Singh Bormundla, other distinguished citizens, public representatives, ACS Rajesh Rajoura, Principal Secretary Aviation Sandeep Yadav, Collector Neeraj Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police Pradeep Sharma and other officers were present.

Chief Minister Dr. Yadav said that Ujjain has received many important development works in the last two days. The work of development will continue. He said that the people of Ujjain have presented a unique example of communal harmony for development. Chief Minister Dr. Yadav thanked the people of Ujjain for voluntarily shifting religious places for the widening of KD Marg.

Chief Minister Dr. Yadav said that Ujjain is continuously setting new dimensions in terms of development. To fulfill the resolve of Maa Kshipra purification, the Bhoomi pujan of Kanha Close Duct Project was performed in which the direction of the entire Kanha River will be changed through a big size line. Due to this contaminated water from Kanha will not enter the Kshipra. And its water will remain pure.

Chief Minister Yadav announced the approval of the Indore-Ujjain six-lane road project, valued at around Rs. 6000 crore. Additionally, the construction of the Ujjain-Jaora road, estimated at approximately Rs. 5000 crore, is slated to commence soon. Simultaneously, ongoing projects totaling approximately Rs. 6000 crore are underway through the National Highway network. Industrial growth remains a priority in Ujjain, with around one thousand acres of land already allocated for industries in Vikram Udyogpuri Ujjain, alongside a proposal for an additional one thousand acres.
