PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the country’s longest four-lane cable-stayed bridge, Sudarshan Setu, which is 2.32 km on the Arabian Sea and connects Beyt Dwarka island to mainland Okha in Gujarat’s Devbhumi Dwarka District.

The bridge, Sudarshan Setu, consists of the verses of the Bhagavad Gita and images of Lord Krishna on both sides.

PM Modi started the day by offering prayers at the Dwarkadhish Temple before the inauguration of the bridge. Earlier, the bridge was called ‘Signature Bridge’ but was later renamed ‘Sudarshan Setu’, which connects Okha and Beyt Dwarka island.

Sharing the news of ‘Sudarshan Setu’ being inaugurated along with pictures of him cutting the ribbon of the bridge.
