Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has announced an ambitious bulk water supply scheme worth Rs. 456 crore aiming to provide clean and sufficient water for drinking and irrigation purpose for the 210 villages of northern part of Dahod district. He also announced an Under Ground sewer scheme worth Rs. 45 crore for Dahod city.
The Chief Minister announced this, while performing the ground breaking ceremony of 82 km long Kadana dam based water supply scheme, worth Rs. 127.12 crore, for Dahod city, and inaugurating the hostel for Engineering College, as part of the day long celebrations of 1st May, Gujarat Formation Day, that celebrated with great fervour and festivity at Dahod. Significantly, Gujarat’s 52nd State Level Formation Day has been celebrated in a grand way at the tribal dominated Dahod district, popularly known as “the Region of Rising Sun”, in the presence of Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
“we are also planning to provide clean drinking water for the villages of southern part of Dahod district by laying 119 km long pipeline from Hafeshwar and it will be materialized soon”, he announced further.
Ground breaking ceremonies, inaugurations and announcements for 500 odd development works worth Rs. 903 crore, for a tribal dominated district like Dahod, in a single day has been made, as part of celebration of State Formation Day, said Mr. Narendra Modi.
Shri Modi said, “Our opponents have been celebrating “the Decade of Lies” and we are celebrating “Development Festival” in Gujarat. We are not utilizing a single paisa from Centre’s fund for these development works to be carried out in Dahod. All the expenditure for the implementation of these schemes will be borne by the money of Gujarat’s exchequer. I am the custodian of public exchequer and not allow any body to misuse it”, he reaffirmed.
“Dahod was famous as a business hub before years and now we are committed to flourish it once again. We are determined to make our tribal districts, which spreads from Umargam to Ambaji, the best tribal districts among all the tribal districts of India”, he proudly announced.
On Gujarat Gaurav Diwas, Shri Modi stated, ““Our Nation owes a big debt of gratitude to the tribal dominated district of Dahod, as the historic revolution of 1857 AD had witnessed the first group of freedom fighters from Dahod district. Gujarat is grateful to the martyrs of this tribal region and that State level Van Mahotsav of the current year would be celebrated at Mangadh hills of Panchmahals to commemorate the sacrifice of local freedom fighter Govind Guru”.
He added that it was unfortunate that sacrifices of a large number of tribal martyrs, who laid their lives for the freedom of our Nation, have been deliberately erased by some elements, so that people no longer could remember their martyrdom.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi also dedicated three facilities worth Rs.8.48 crore to people today at Muwaliya agricultural farm in Dahod. These include an agro engineering polytechnic at the cost of Rs.5.96 crore, boys’ hostel at the cost of Rs.1.94 crore and girls’ hostel at the cost of Rs.57 lakh.

Before arriving on the stage here, I visited an exhibition of stalls set up by Self-Help Groups comprising women from all eight North Eastern States. The artefacts and products displayed in this exhibition are indeed impressive. Let me begin by congratulating the ladies from these Self-Help Groups, who are present here today and have just given me a glimpse of their immense talent.
The promotion of Self Help Groups has got a boost from the Deen Dayal Antyodaya Yojana. A large number of Self Help Groups are also benefiting through credit linkages by North Eastern Development Financial Institution with the component of interest subsidy being provided by Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region.
The Government is committed to the development of Self Help Groups, particularly Women Self Help Groups. Keeping this in mind, in December 2015, the Union Cabinet approved a Special Package Fund for the North Eastern States. The objective is to accelerate the implementation of the National Rural Livelihood Mission, so as to cover two-thirds of all rural households in North Eastern States by 2023-24.
