MOTIHARI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday flagged off a 12,000-horsepower freight electric locomotive assembled at the Madhepura factory in Bihar.

At the concluding ceremony of the centenary celebrations of Champaran Satyagraha in Motihari, Modi said the high-speed electric locomotive project was approved by the Centre in 2007, but it gathered dust till the NDA government worked on it three years ago.

“The first phase of the project is completed… Our government has stopped the culture of suppressing files,” he said.

The train engine was developed at the Electric Locomotive Factory, a collaboration between India and France. It is the first Make-in-India project of such a magnitude. So far, the most powerful electric engine with the Indian Railways was of 6,000 HP.

Modi also inaugurated development projects worth Rs 2,500 crore, including three sewerage networks and a sewerage treatment plant in Patna, as part of the Centre’s Namami Gange scheme. Other projects included a lake beautification project in Motihari and a water supply project in Bettiah.
