Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate 'Pradhan Mantri Kisan Mandhan Yojana' to the nation from Ranchi on Thursday. He will also launch the 'Pradhan Mantri Laghu Vyaparik Mandhan Yojana' and the 'Swarojgar' pension scheme.
Prime Minister Modi will also inaugurate the new building of the Jharkhand Assembly and a multi-modal terminal at Sahibganj, Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das said on Tuesday.
The multi-modal terminal was built by Inland Waterways Authority of India on River Ganga at Sahibganj. It will have a cargo storing capacity of 30 tonne per year, a stockyard and parking and berthing space for two vessels, he said.
Direct and indirect employment for the local people will be generated in the multi-modal terminal, Mr Das said.

He will also lay the foundation stone for a new building of Jharkhand Secretariat.
