"The same (lack of) water that was seen as the reason behind Gujarat’s problems will now be the reason behind the state’s progress: Shri Modi"
"CM stresses on importance of water conservation, talks of Khet Talavadis, drip irrigation"
"Shri Modi takes on Centre over the installation of gates at Sardar Sarovar Dam, says they are more worried about nephews and uncles rather than welfare of people"

On the morning of Sunday 5th May 2013 Shri Narendra Modi attended Saurashtra Narmada Jal Avtaran Jan Jagruti Mahayagya organized by the Saurashtra Jaldhara Trust at Gondal Taluka, Rajkot District.  Shri Modi said that the people of Gujarat are such that they not only think of the wellbeing of the present generations but also think of the happiness and wellbeing of the future generations. “This programme is a Shilanyas for the happiness of the coming generations,” he affirmed. Shri Modi shared his dream that every part of Gujarat is blessed with sufficient water and added that in the coming years, the same (lack of) water that was seen as the reason behind Gujarat’s problems will now be the reason behind the state’s progress.

The Chief Minister described this Yagya as a pure initiative and said that people from all over the nation must know about it. He also shared that he was not sure if he would be able to come to the programme due to the model code of conduct but pointed that the authorities also saw this as a pure initiative, which is why his visit was possible.

Shri Modi said that Gujarat may not have the Ganga, Yamuna, Krishna, Godavari and the state may have Rann but the people of Gujarat are not those who will keep lamenting about it and do nothing. “We will find a way from what we have got,” he pointed out.

He spoke about the importance of water conservation and Khet Talavadis in Gujarat. Speaking about the Kalpasar Yojana, Shri Modi said that it has the capability to solve Gujarat’s water problems for the next 100 years. Shri Modi stressed on the need of embracing drip irrigation and shared the Mantra of ‘per drop, more crop.’ He urged women to take the lead in the movement to embrace drip irrigation. He also talked about the state Government’s initiative of solid waste management in 50 towns and cities for water conservation.

On the occasion, Shri Modi attacked the Prime Minister over the Centre’s refusal to allow gates to be installed on Sardar Sarovar Dam. He affirmed, “Gates have to be installed on Sardar Sarovar Dam. If we start work today, it will take three years. The Gates are ready. Our MPs, even Advani ji went to PM but everything the PM asks- it has not happened even now?” He further added that if gates are installed on Sardar Sarovar Dam then even the water problems of Maharashtra will be solved but the Congress is not bothered about their own ruled states as well. “They are only worried about nephews, uncles…see how nephews have also jumped into the game!” he declared referring to recent corruption cases vis-à-vis kin of a UPA Minister.Shri Modi also talked about the Statue of Unity, to tribute Sardar Patel at the Sardar Sarovar Dam. He said that it would be double the size of the Statue of Liberty.

In his speech, Shri Modi profusely congratulated the NGO that organized the programme and took on the so-called activists over their double standards. “Had this NGO been English speaking, with people who wear torn Kurtas with Jholas, who frequent 5 Star hotels and got money from overseas, it would have been praised all over India and the world. Oppose Narmada and you will shine on TV but support it and it is different,” he stated.

Cabinet Ministers Smt. Anandiben Patel, Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, Shri Babubhai Bokhiria were present on the occasion. Also present was BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Shri Parshottam Rupala and former MP and BJP leader Shri Vitthal Radadiya.

A discussion with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister has just ended. This has been a very positive effort towards the development and strengthening of democracy in Jammu-Kashmir. The meeting took place in a very cordial atmosphere. All the participants expressed their full allegiance to the democracy of India and the Constitution of India.

The Home Minister apprised all the leaders of the improvement in the situation in Jammu-Kashmir.

The Prime Minister listened to every party’s arguments and suggestions with all seriousness and he appreciated the fact that all the people's representatives shared their point of view with an open mind. The Prime Minister laid special emphasis on two important issues in the meeting. He said that we all have to work together to take democracy to the grassroots in Jammu-Kashmir. Secondly, there should be all-round development in Jammu-Kashmir and development should reach every region and every community. It is necessary that there should be an atmosphere of cooperation and public participation.

Hon'ble Prime Minister also pointed out that elections to Panchayati Raj and other local bodies have been successfully held in Jammu-Kashmir. There is improvement in the security situation. About 12,000 crore rupees have directly reached the panchayats after the conclusion of elections. This has accelerated the pace of development in the villages.

The Prime Minister said that we have to approach the next important step related to the democratic process in Jammu-Kashmir i.e. assembly elections. The process of delimitation has to be completed expeditiously so that every region and every section gets adequate political representation in the assembly. It is necessary to give a proper representation to the Dalits, backwards and people living in tribal areas.

There was a detailed discussion in the meeting regarding the participation of everybody in the process of delimitation. All the parties present in the meeting have agreed to participate in this process.

The Prime Minister also emphasized the cooperation of all the stakeholders to take Jammu-Kashmir on the path of peace and prosperity. He said that Jammu-Kashmir is moving out of the vicious circle of violence and moving towards stability. New hope and new confidence have emerged among the people of Jammu-Kashmir.

The PM also said that we will have to work day and night to strengthen this trust and work together to improve this confidence. Today's meeting is an important step for strengthening the democracy and the development and prosperity of Jammu-Kashmir. I thank all the political parties for attending today's meeting.

Thanks
