Festooned with giant billboards of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Indian flags a city that once served as capital to medieval warlords — from the Sultan of Ghazni to Nadir Shah and Ahmad Shah Durrani — is preparing to give an Emperor’s welcome to the first ever head of government to visit And to signal its gratitude for a gift that residents believe will help restore the city to greatness Modi is scheduled to visit Herat on Saturday to inaugurate the Salma Dam At over $275 million the most expensive of India’s infrastructure projects in the region it is expected to generate 42 MW of electricity for the rapidly growing city of 435000 and irrigate some 75000 hectares Watch: Salma Dam Reservoir That Modi Inaugurated In Herat Large crowds of young people linked to Herat’s

trade with Iran and Turkmenistan is considered one of Afghanistan’s few success stories The dam the Afghan government hopes will lay foundations for it to emerge as a centre of industry and agriculture The Salma Dam is the most ambitious in a series of Indian infrastructure projects meant to help rebuild the war-torn country which include the $135-million Route 606 highway from Delaram to Zaranj the $42-million power transmission line from Pul-i-Khumri to Kabul and the $90-million building that houses the country’s Parliament “This dam will be standing when no one present at its inauguration is still alive” said Vivek Katju who as India’s first ambassador to the new Afghan republic born after 9/11 played a key role in negotiating the project Estimated to cost a relatively modest $75 million when work began the dam was to have been completed in 2012 In January 2013 though Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government approved the revision of the cost to $2733 million and

introspection “I don’t mean to rain on the parade” says Rakesh Sood who succeeded Katju as India’s Ambassador to Afghanistan “as India becomes engaged in strategic projects across the world it’s going to become ever more important to get a grip on these cost and time overruns or we’re going to get a bad reputation” For Afghanistan’s government though the dam’s inauguration is one of few pieces of
