Speaking at a function to mark handing over Rs.55-crore for two urban projects to Jamnagar, he said, Gujarat Government would implement the solid waste management and wastewater treatment plants in 50 towns in the state. The manure generated from the projects would serve as cross-subsidy in the process.
The two projects are Rs.25-crore for Jamnagar underground sewer project and Rs.30-crore for Vajpayee urban development project
He said that Gujarat has urged the Government of India and Planning Commission to treat the unique project as a model for the entire country, but added that Gujarat would go ahead with the project, without waiting for the Centre's nod.
Mr. Modi said Rs.7,000-crore have been allocated for infrastructure development as part of Gujarat's Golden Jubilee Urban Development Programme this year. He listed 108 Emergency Service, ‘Mission Mangalam' as some of the other projects taken up in the right earnest.
