PM lays foundation for projects worth Rs 80 bn in Gujarat

Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stones for projects worth over Rs 80 billion in Banaskantha district of poll-bound Gujarat this week.

In the wake of the suspension bridge collapse tragedy in Morbi, the Prime Minister cancelled his scheduled roadshow in Ahmedabad and cultural programmes and functions in Kevadia and Tharad in North Gujarat.

Laying foundation stones for water-related projects, he said that these projects will help irrigation in more than six districts of Gujarat, including Banaskantha, Patan and Mehsana.

He said adoption of drip irrigation by farmers of north Gujarat has given a boost to agriculture in the region. “On the one hand we have the Banas Dairy and on the other hand a 100 MW solar power plant. We have accomplished the goal of getting tap water to every house in the region,” he claimed.

He said 400,000 hectares of land in Banaskantha are dedicated to using drip and micro irrigation, which has resulted in the water table not getting depleted further.
