Shri Modi said, “Our opponents have been celebrating “the Decade of Lies” and we are celebrating “Development Festival” in Gujarat. We are not utilizing a single paisa from Centre’s fund for these development works to be carried out in Dahod. All the expenditure for the implementation of these schemes will be borne by the money of Gujarat’s exchequer. I am the custodian of public exchequer and not allow any body to misuse it”, he reaffirmed.

Gujarat is grateful to the martyrs of this tribal region and that State level Van Mahotsav of the current year would be celebrated at Mangadh hills of Panchmahals to commemorate the sacrifice of local freedom fighter Govind Guru”.
