13000 people fast with CM under Sadbhavna Mission in Surat
CM announces development projects worth Rs.2100 crore for Suarat
“I don’t waste time behind those who are inclined to see Gujarat with negative mentality”
“People of Gujarat will answer the anti-Gujarat elements in a democratic way” ~ Shri Narendra Modi
Concluding his daylong fast at Surat today as a part of Sadbhavna Mission Chief Minister Narendra Modi said that people of Gujarat has a power to answer the anti-Gujarat elements in a democratic way. Their answer is manifested through their support to the Sadbhavna Mission.
Citizens of Surat including the women, youths, society leaders, industrialists, saints, social workers and office bearers of various organizations thronged the venue conveying their support and well wishes to the Chief Minister and his mission.
Welcoming the large turnout Chief Minister announced development projects worth Rs.2100 crore for Suarat including the projects for BRTS and the construction of new bridges. The people and different organizations of Surat gave an amount of Rs.30 lakh as a donation to the Chief Minister’s Kanya Kelavani Nidhi.
Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister said that people of Gujarat will not tolerate the defamation drive that has been launched by the anti-Gujarat elements. These elements have gone a long way and are even misusing constitutional organizations to defame Gujarat. Gujarat never troubles anybody but it also knows how to give a tough answer when it is being troubled by somebody.
The huge support of the people to the Sadbhavana mission is an answer to those who device plots to tarnish the image of Gujarat. Gujarat has left behind the venoms of communalism and casteism and has adhered to the values of peace, unity and harmony. Political pandits should analyze why people are voluntarily supporting the Sadbhavna fast and the growth polity of Gujarat, he said.
Mr. Modi said that people have not seen the instances of riots and curfews during the last decade. The reason behind this is the atmosphere of peace, unity and harmony that is prevailing in the state.
“People who play vote-bank politics can not realize the power of Sadbhavna Mission, because they don’t want real development. I don’t waste time behind those who are inclined to see Gujarat with negative mentality. I want to put India on the track of Sadbhavna”, he said.
