PM Modi to launch several projects in Gujarat

PM Narendra Modi to visit Kedarnath temple today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday charged that the Congress-led UPA government had been hostile to him and deliberately stalled development projects in Gujarat while he'd been the chief minister. "Now, those who used to take contracts for ensuring passage of your trucks through the check posts are naturally very angry with me", Modi said. "But the then government at the Centre apparently had reservations about it and I had to return, However, perhaps Baba (Lord Shiva) had decided that the reconstruction around Kedarnath will be done by Baba's son only", he said. People at the Center were like that. "They had threatened to lock all our industries in the name of environment".

Making a pitch for the 2019 general election, Mr Modi said: "Blessings from Kedarnath will lead us to fulfil the aspirations of every Indian citizen in 2022". "We changed the way of thinking". The BJP government is raising these issues because they are going to face elections in Gujarat, Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said.

He said it were his efforts that gave birth to this ferry service which he had heard about only in his school days.

When fully operationalised, it will also enable movement of vehicles.

"Imagine how much time and petrol this ferry service will save", he said, adding the facility would not be restricted to just one route.

"If we have a look at the figures which have come recently, the production of coal, electricity, natural gas and other items has increased tremendously".

Calling coastal areas as gateways to progress, he said over the last three years, his government had been trying to develop coastal infrastructure that would "create over a crore employment opportunities". Ferry service is a first of sorts, not only in India but also in southeast Asia. It is meant for passengers and would carry 500 of them at a time.

5 In the second phase, which would be ready in two months, cars, too, would be carried between the two towns.

Modi is also expected to inaugurate the Sarvottam Cattle Feed Plant of Shree Bhavnagar District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Ltd, after the public meeting in Dahej.

The Prime Minister is set to travel in the famed ferry after its inauguration. He later flew to Vadodara to address a public rally and inaugurate more projects.

The opposition parties have alleged that the poll panel has given time to the ruling BJP to announce sops for the people of Gujarat.
