Expressing his steely resolve, Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi claimed that Gujarat has made remarkable strides in key sectors like Electricity, Industries and agriculture. Remaining steadfast in its advanced-technological-vision, Gujarat celebrates her Golden Jubilee in a unique way, scaling new developmental-heights in various sectors, he added. Gujarat shall rise much higher with the 5.5 crores pledges taken by citizens. CM was addressing a public rally after dedicating GIPCL’s 250 MW Lignite based Power Plant at Nani- Naroli, Surat today. Gujarat has evolved a unique strategy of development. CM stressed on inclusive- growth, so that fruits of developments reach up to far-flung tribal villages.

Vadi –Yojana has given range of benefits to small and tribal farmers. CM outlined state’s initiatives under which the tribal youth undergoes the skill enhancement programme. The over-all -goal is to ameliorate the living conditions of tribals, and making them happy.

Gujarat has adequate reserves of Lignite, by utilizing it to produce electricity Gujarat remains fully committed to fulfil energy demands of our nation, asserted CM.

CM cracked upon the anti-farmer policies adopted by Central Government. By imposing ban on cotton export the Centre has served a death-blow for the cotton-cultivators. Gujarat’s farmer produces high-quality cotton, which is in great demand across the world over. Farmer of Gujarat has to bear losses to the tunes of Rs. 2000 crores, added CM.

In a landmark decision, State has decided to preserve rights of the farmers who give their land for State’s development. After giving their land, if he becomes land-less, his right as a farmer remains intact for 3 years, his right is not at all waived as a farmer, said CM.

CM listed the step-motherly treatment meted to Gujarat by the Central Government. If Gujarat gets Coal-Supply from Nagpur mines, it impacts economy in electricity production, but the central-government does not allow us to get coal-supply from Nagpur. Gujarat is compelled to procure coal from Bihar and Jharkhand. The exorbitant rise in Gas-Supply to Gujarat is another example, people of Gujarat has to bear additional burden of Rs 1000 crores due to Centre’s decision to raise prices of Natural-Gas.

It is heartening to note that Gujarat has won laurels at national level; Gujarat has received Best-Performance Awards from Union Government. On the occasion, GIPCL gave a Cheque of Rs. 25 Lakhs in to Chief Minister’s Girl Child Education Fund.

Minister of State for Energy, Shri Saurabh Patel highlighted the milestone achievements of Gujarat under the Panchamrut Scheme.

Earlier delivering welcome address, GIPCL’s Chairman gave details of Rs.1500 Crores’ Power-Project.

Panchayat Minister Shri Narottam Patel, Tribal Welfare Minister Shri Mangubhai Patel, MLA Shri Ganpat Vasava, M.D –GIPCL Shri Guruprasad Mahapatra, Collector Shri A.J. Shah, Superintendent of Police Shri Prabhatkumar Patel, and eminent leaders were among the others who attended the inauguration ceremony.
