“Today, I would also like to thank all my labourer brother and sisters, who shed their sweat to bring this grand complex to life. Even during the difficult Covid-19 times, they made sure that the construction work went on. Just now, I had the privilege of meeting them and seek their blessings,” Prime Minister Modi said, addressing a gathering after opening phase 1 of the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor.


PM Modi also thanked others involved in building the complex. “I also thank artisans, civil engineers, officials from the district administration, as well as families who had houses on the land on which the corridor was constructed,” he said.
