“ Sadbhavna Mission is to ensure that the Centre’s story of failures and collapses do not happen in Gujarat”

“Centre treating Gujarat as an enemy State, trying to stall its development”

– Narendra Modi

Ahmedabad, Monday: Even as the accounts of Gujarat’s development story have reached far and wide, in rest of India and abroad, ChiefMinister Narendra Modi today said that he has undertaken ‘Sadbhvana Mission’ to ensure the Congress Government’s story of failures and collapses does not happen in Gujarat.

Rounding up his day-long Sadbhavna fast at Surendranagar as p art of his state-wide Mission to hold such fasts at 33 places, he said he was overwhelmed by the support of 7,500 people coming from all the ten talukas of the district, called Zalawad region, to join him in his fast.

What the Congress party could not do at Centre in 40 years, he said, Gujarat did it in ten years. He said that India has adopted a federal structure of strong states for a strong nation. The strong relation is expected between father and son too, in a family. It encourages states excel. If the Centre doesn’t want to help Gujarat, let it not stop developing at least, treating Gujarat as an enemy nation.

Mr. Modi said that Gujarat has become an eyesore. The Centre is trying every trick to stall Gujarat’s development, whether it is releasing kerosene quota or fertilizer. The words ‘Gujarat’ and ‘Development’ have become the two sides of the same coin.

While foreign investment has fell by 40 per cent in India, he said, that in Gujarat has risen by 20 per cent. The Congress party men have adopted a policy of telling lies and abusing Gujarat though the newspapers and other media. The power hungry politicians at the Centre have pushed the nation to the road to downhill journey – be it its inability to contain inflation or check corruption.

The Chief Minister on the occasion announced new development works worth Rs.2,660-crore for the Surendranagar district.
