Speaking on the occasion the Chief Minister said that anti-Gujarat elements had made well-thought-out conspiracies to stop the country’s businessmen from setting up their plants in Gujarat. The Central government is also devising plans to shift the Gujarat’s industries to Maharashtra. He also asked the people of Gujarat to be aware of such plots which intends to defame Gujarat.
The Bharuch district was left in an undeveloped state a decade back. But now, it has become a district that is developing with the highest pace in the country because of the state’s policies of good governance, said Chief Minister.
Mr. Modi said that Gujarat lacks the necessary raw material in the form of natural resources, which is considered as prerequisite for growth. But even without it, Gujarat has put others behind in industrial development. “Gujarat doesn’t have iron-ore but it is on top in the production of steel. Gujarat doesn’t have coal but it is on top in power generation. Gujarat doesn’t have diamond mines but it is on top in diamond business.” This is the result of a right vision and political will, he said.
Chief Minister also gave outline of the State’s initiatives in solar power sector.
Minister of State Praful Patel, MP Mansukh Vasava, Bharatsinh Parmar, former Minister Chhatrasinh Mori, Feders Lloyd Corporation Limited’s Brijraj Punj, Bharat Punj, N D Jain and industry leaders were present on the occasion.
