During his visit PM Modi affirmed, “Rajasthan has huge area and tourists want to visit its Lake City – Udaipur, Pushkar and sand dunes of Jaisalmer. When tourism develops, handicrafts-men earn, taxi drivers earn, hoteliers earn and even the ‘chai wala’ (tea seller) earns,” as the gathering burst into laughter.

Stressing the importance of infrastructure for development, he said these highways will help farmers, boost tourism and open up economic opportunities for the local people. They would not only help link Rajasthan more efficiently but also be gateways to progress.
