Mumbai: In a recent development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Asia’s largest 750 MW solar power project in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh on Friday through video conferencing.

“With this solar power project, the people of Madhya Pradesh and the industries set up here will not only get electricity, but the metro rail in Delhi will also benefit from it. Apart from Rewa, similar work is underway at Shajapur, Neemuch, and Chhatarpur,” the Prime Minister added.
