CM greets the people on Diwali and New Year

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has greeted the people of Gujarat on the occasion of Diwali and extended his best wishes to the people for the new year.

In his Diwali and New Year message Mr. Modi appealed, “In Vikram Samvat 2070 let us perform our duties towards the nation for creating a majestic and matchless future for India“.

Here is the text of the Chief Minister’s message:

The glow of Gujarat’s growth will be instrumental in creating a majestic and matchless future for India.

Cultural heritage of our nation eternal and ageless.

Our sages and seers, with their scientific approach, have knitted such an incredible social fabric that this social structure based on moral values is giving us strength and guidance to live since thousands of years.

Veda says, “Dipakhya Jyoti Prakasho”, means, let the light of lamp illuminate our lives.

Twelve years back, we kindle the lamp of development in Gujarat. Today Gujarat’s glory has spread throughout the nation and the world owing to the hard work of the people of Guajrat.

Following to the vedic tradition, we incorporated ‘Panch Shakti’ in the development of modern Gujarat. We synthesized the natural resources with manpower. We have created a repute for good governance and healthy democracy which is based on people’s participation.

This twelve years’ journey is a result of the trust that six crore people of Gujarat has put on the government machinery. Tenure of past governments saw a hunger for power and indulgence in petty politics owing to which Gujarat suffered blots of communal riots, violence and turbulent times. The state has reversed this scenario now.

For the first time Gujarat has seen political stability for long time, a record of sort, credit of which goes to the peace, unity and brotherhood demonstrated by the six crore people of Gujarat.

Gujarat’s twelve years’ development journey has witnessed unprecedented hurdles.

The present leadership of India has leaved no stone unturned in practicing political enmity and making injustice to Gujarat even though the state is an integral part of our federal democracy. And yet Gujarat has never bowed down. People of Gujarat have always diligently and relentlessly marched forward in the direction of good governance.

This is the reason why Gujarat’s good governance and the strength of Gujarati people is now showing path for India’s growth.

In the beginning of 21st century there was a common hope among the people of India that our country too will spread its influence in the world through development. Unfortunately, the current rulers sold out our country’s prestige owing to their hunger for power, ruining the dreams of 125 crore countrymen.

Growth made by Gujarat is not merely a part of maps and graphs but very well apparent before all to witness.

Gujarat has changed the political scenario of the country.

Now there is no alternate left for others but to follow the path of development politics taken by Gujarat. Everyone desires a development like Gujarat. An overall atmosphere of respect for Gujarat and Gujaratis is a fruit of our bonhomie towards others.

Even in our committed efforts for the good governance and in our aim to create divine and glorious Gujarat, we have kept the development of India at the core. The good of every citizen of this country is inherent in every move of Gujarat and the state’s development politics.

In democracy, election can be seen as a giant step in the direction of keeping alive the awareness among the people.

The glow of Gujarat’s growth has a great capacity to actualize the dreams of people of India. And this fact, acting as a shining lamp is encouraging people for taking new vows.

As Gujaratis, let us take pride in all these achievements and perform our duties towards the nation in the new year of Vikram Samvat 2070 for creating a majestic and matchless future for India.

Diwali and New Year greetings to you all.

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation: PM to inaugurate India’s longest bridge
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to give a major boost to overall economic development in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation when Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurates the country’s longest river bridge –the Dhola- Sadiya Bridge in Assam tomorrow. This new, three lane, 9.15 kilometre bridge has been built over river Lohit, a tributary of the Brahmaputra, linking Dhola in Assam to Sadiya in Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge will fill a huge connectivity gap that has existed in the region. Till now, the only means to cross the Brahmaputra at this location has been by ferry only in day-time and even this is not possible during floods. The last bridge over the Brahmaputra was the Kalia Bhomora Bridge at Tejpur. This will however change from tomorrow with the Dhola-Sadiya bridge ensuring 24X7 connectivity between upper Assam and Eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.

The bridge will also reduce the distance from Rupai on NH- 37 in Assam to Meka/Roing on NH-52 in Arunachal Pradesh by 165 KM. The travel time between the two places will come down from the current six hours to just one hour – a total five hour reduction. This will result in saving of petrol and diesel worth Rs 10 Lakh per day.

The Dhola-Sadiya bridge promises to usher in prosperity in the North-East. It will provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure. This bridge will also give a major boost to overall economic development of the areas north of Brahmaputra in upper Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. It will also cater to the strategic requirements of the country in the border areas of Arunachal Pradesh, besides facilitating numerous hydro power projects coming up in the state , as it is the most sought after route for various power project developers.

The total length of the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge project, including the approach roads on each side, is 28.50 km. The length of the bridge itself is 9.15 Km. It has been constructed on BOT Annuity basis at a total cost of Rs 2,056 crore, as part of the Arunachal Package of Roads and Highways under the Ministry’s SPECIAL ACCELERATED ROAD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME for NORTH EAST (SARDP-NE). The objective was to bring the people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh closer to each other.
