During his Bikaner tour, the Prime Minister will inaugurate various development works done by the Central Government. The Prime Minister will participate in the program organized at Norangdesar near the Green Express Highway near Bikaner.
The Prime Minister will dedicate the Greenfield Express Highway to the nation during his program. This 6 lane highway starts from Amritsar in Punjab and covers a total distance of 1316 km till Jamnagar in Gujarat.
The total cost of this highway is Rs 20,868 crore. This highway is an important green field project connecting 4 states i.e. Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
This project connects industrial centres like Amritsar, Bathinda, Sanaria, Bikaner, Sanchore, Samakhiali, and Jamnagar. This will speed up economic development in all areas of western Rajasthan.
This expressway will pass through Hanumangarh, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Barmer, and Jalore districts after passing through the north-western border of Rajasthan.
In addition to this, under the Bharatmala Yojana, two road projects will be dedicated to the nation. The first project is the Raisingh Nagar-Anupgarh-Pugal stretch, which is 162.46 kilometres long and has been constructed at a cost of INR 860.26 crore.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Green Energy Corridor, a power transmission project undertaken by the Power Grid Corporation of India.
This corridor, stretching from Banaskantha in Gujarat to Moga in Punjab, spans a distance of 1300 kilometres and was constructed at a cost of INR 26,000 crore. As a result of this initiative, the Bikaner region is progressing as a solar hub.
The inauguration of the ESIC Hospital in the Antyodaya Nagar on the Jaisalmer Road in Bikaner city will also take place during Prime Minister's program in Naurangdesar.
