Gujarat Chief Minister Narendrabhai Modi today congratulated the voters of Kathlal for the Bharatiya’s Janata Party’s historic victory in the Assembly bye-election. He accepted it as a gift coinciding with his birthday today.

Describing the victory as the electorates’ tremendous support to the BJP Government’s development policies in Gujarat, he said, it was a resounding slap on the Congress’ vote-bank politics, on the misuse of the Election Commission, on the party’s Gujarat-bashing, and on the Congress-CBI joint conspiracy to defeat BJP in the state.

Shri Modi said it was for the first time in the state’s 50 years’ history that the BJP snatched the Kathlal seat from what is considered to be a stronghold of the Congress.

In the last Assembly General Election in 2009 too, he recalled, the Congress candidate had won the seat defeating his nearest BJP rival by a margin of 13,000 votes.

The Assembly constituency was considered to be a citadel of the sitting Union Minister of State Dinsha Patel, besides the influence of another Union Minister of State Bharat Solanki and his father Madhavsinh Solanki.

Shri Modi pointed out how the Congress tried to misuse the Election Commission, demanded re-polling in seven booths, which resulted in loss of 300 more votes for the Congress. The result shows that even the Muslim voted against the pseudo secularism of the Congress, casting 65 per cent of votes in favour of the BJP and upholding the high traditions of democracy.

PM takes a ride in Ahmedabad Metro

The Prime Minister flagged off the Ahmedabad Metro Rail project and took a metro ride from Kalupur station to Doordarshan Kendra metro station today.

On the second day of his Gujarat visit, the Prime Minister waved the green flag for the Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project. The Prime Minister arrived at Kalupur Station after taking a ride in the brand new Vande Bharat Express 2.0 from Gandhinagar Station. The Prime Minister also witnessed a Metro Rail exhibition that was put up on the occasion.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Bhupendra Patel, Governor of Gujarat, Shri Acharya Devvrat, and Union Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs, Shri Hardeep Singh Puri.

During the ride in the Metro, the Prime Minister travelled with students, sportspersons and common commuters. He interacted with them. Many of them took his autograph.

The Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project is a monumental boost to multimodal infrastructure connectivity. Phase-I of the Ahmedabad Metro project comprises about 32 km of the East-West corridor from Apparel Park to Thaltej and the North-South corridor between Motera to Gyaspur. The Thaltej-Vastral route in the East-West corridor has 17 stations. This corridor also has a 6.6 km underground section with four stations. The 19 km North-South corridor that connects Gyaspur to Motera Stadium has 15 stations. The entire Phase 1 project is built at a cost of more than ₹12,900 crores.

Ahmedabad Metro is a massive state of art infrastructure project involving underground tunnels, viaducts & bridges, elevated and underground station buildings, ballastless rail tracks and driverless train operation compliant rolling stock etc. The metro train set is equipped with an energy-efficient propulsion system which can save about 30-35% of energy consumption. The train has a state of art suspension system providing a very smooth riding experience to passengers.
