"Shri Modi announces Rs 25 crore development project for building 1008 homes for the poor"
"Various people and organisations from all walks of life felicitate Shri Modi for the creation of Morbi District"
"CM weighed against silver, says the proceeds from the gift will go for building Statue of Unity on Narmada River"

On Saturday 24th August 2013 Shri Narendra Modi visited the newly created district of Morbi. He described the creation of the new district as a move towards quicker progress of Gujarat and towards integrating the people in the development journey of the state. He affirmed that Gujarat is developing and contributing to the development of the nation but while the people of Gujarat can see it, the anti-Gujarat vested interest groups cannot. As the new district of Morbi commences its development journey, Shri Narendra Modi announced a development project of Rs 25 crore to build 1008 Pukka Houses for the poor. On the occasion the Chief Minister expressed confidence that the creation of these new districts would positively contribute to Gujarat’s development.

The new district, which was created on 15th August was a promise made by Shri Narendra Modi to the people and the happiness of the people was evident when Shri Modi visited the district today. The district of Morbi has been created out of parts of Rajkot, Surendranagar and Jamnagar district. Shri Modi declared that this district, which is the land of the social reformer Swami Dayananda Saraswati would also become a land of progress in the coming time.

During the public meeting, that was attended by thousands of people from all Talukas of the district, Shri Modi was weighed against silver. 85 kg of silver was arranged to weigh Shri Modi and was presented to him by representatives of the ceramic industry of Morbi. The Chief Minister announced that the proceeds of this would go to build the Statue of Unity, to commemorate the Iron Man of India Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on the Narmada River. Over 100 local organisations felicitated the Chief Minister.

In his speech Shri Modi affirmed that the development journey cannot be stagnant or static but it has to be Sarvasamaveshak and Sarvasparshi (all inclusive) and that Gujarat has shown the way in this direction. He shared that out of the seven new districts created, four are from Saurashtra.

Shri Modi said that the people of Gujarat have shown the way by rejecting those vested interest groups who have been spreading lies. He stated that in 2012 the Gujarat Government faced the people by giving them answers on their work in the last five years and in 2014 it is the turn of the Centre to answer the people what they have done. He also added that he is confident the people will give a fitting reply to the Centre in 2014.

Attacking the policies of the Congress-led UPA Government, Shri Modi said that both the Rupee and the leadership of the UPA, PM Dr. Manmohan Singh have turned mute. He said that to save the nation from crisis, it is essential to make the nation free from the UPA Government.

Energy Minister Shri Saurabh Bhai Patel, Minister of State Shri Jayanti Bhai Kavadiya, Shri Govind Bhai Patel, MLAs Shri Kantibhai Amrutiya, Shri Mohanbhai Kundaria, new collector Shri S. Raval and several other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
