These projects span various sectors, including roads and bridges, health and education, police welfare, smart city and urban development projects, railways, and airports.

On the first day of his visit, PM Modi will inaugurate the second edition of Kashi Tamil Sangamam in the evening at Namo Ghat.

The event will include the flag-off of the Kashi Tamil Sangamam Express, which will operate between Kanyakumari and Varanasi.
