    In the near future, an amphibious bus service that can be operated on land as well as water will be operational.

    The Sabarmati River is the lifeline of Ahmedabad and has always been central to the identity of this booming city. Till a decade ago, however the Sabarmati River running through Ahmedabad resembled a stretch barren land where children played cricket and circuses were occasionally held.

    The vision to re-develop the Sabarmati riverfront assumed importance ever since Shri Narendra Modi assumed office in 2001. Today, the Sabarmati Riverfront has become an important cultural landmark on the map of Ahmedabad. From shops, informal markets to hosting International Kite Festivals, its all happening on the banks of the Sabarmati!

    Now, with the coming of the walkways and rides, you are further assured of a wonderful treat the next time you decide to venture onto the banks of the Sabarmati…

    Nehru was a visionary, sardar was an implementer but Narendra Modi is a dreamer, visualiser and implementer, all rolled into one. He is able to motivate his party workers, the bureaucracy, the industrialists, the businessmen and all the segments of even the lay public. His slogan 'Development for all, Co-operation from all' is not an empty slogan. it is actually happening. Sabarmati riverfront takes gujarat and India one step nearer to the developed world. I wish that Shri Modi sticks to Gujarat and continue being a role model for others to follow. Combination of the right kind of followers and a matching leadership alone can deliver such results. Taking Modi to the centre without the rest of the Indians becoming as positive as the enterprising gujaratis in thought, words as well as action will not yield the same results as in gujarat. Let other states find leaders who match their own temperament but follow Gujarat's path to achieve similar results. I am sure, Modi would always be available as a consultant to all who wish for his services in that capacity.

    I clearly remember the days when there was either no water or a stinking swamp in the entire riverbed. whenever the dam overflowed and the water was released people would flock to see the flowing river. Now the face of Ahmedabad is changing fast . River front is just a small part of it. All because and a result of good governance under leadership of Shri Modiji. Also due to the trust of people which will continue over the time.
