Giving examples of this, he said that state government has put in place about four and half lakh toilets in villages actualizing the Gandhiji’s principal of cleanliness. Gujarat has also recognized the role of women in the development and through lakhs of Sakhimandala the state is empowering the women. With a view to empower villages the state government has implemented the concept like Samras villages and launched various schemes and campaigns for the decentralization of power.
