After having a busy field-day in morning at BSF border chowki and before that celebrating the state-level Independence Day celebration at Kutch, Chief Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated host of projects and laid foundation stones for projects worth Rs 25 crore.
While dedicating facilities like adventure mini golf course at Kankaria Lake Front and laying foundation stone for building a new Khokhra police station, Mr. Mod said, “Different cities of the state will undertake a pilot project to run public transport system plying city buses on PPP model. Around 18 municipalities falling under A-grade category will be part this pilot project.”
Mr. Modi dedicated adventure mini golf course at Kankaria Lake Front prepared for an expenditure of Rs. 3.50 crore. He also laid foundation stone for constructing a new building for Khokhra Police Station, government MCA College in the KK Shashtri Educational Complex and launched renovation of Shyama Prasad Hall.
Mr. Modi personally inspected the recently completed renovation and addition of facilities in the Rukshmani Hospital. It is the test of the good governance to emerge as deliverer of the poor and become support of those deprived, said Mr. Modi, adding that access to golf is not the prerogative of rich but government has made attempts to give gold facility to the youths and commoner at Kankaria. After it was renovated, Kankaria Lake has received over 5 crore visitors in five years.
While referring the special efforts put in by the authorities in offering state government’s first MCA College at Maninagar, Mr. Modi said, “Hope the college will deliver best of the knowledge and practices to the students.” He said police stations have been renovated and despite growing population and wealth, Gujarat has been able to decrease the crime rate. Mr. Modi said, “Gujarat police cadre has most young, techno savvy and educated persons while Raksha Shakti University has served to become a prominent human resource development for these services.”
Referring to the laxity shown by youths between 18-25 years of age in voting, Mr. Modi appealed the youth to exercise their right to vote and called upon them to launch a massive mission generating awareness for it.
On the occasion those dignitaries who were present include: Minister of Revenue Anandiben Patel, Minister of Law Bhupendrasinhji Chudasama, state ministers Vasuben Trivedi, Pradipsinh Jadeja, Rajni Patel, MPS, MLAs, top officials of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and other.
