Ahmedabad, Saturday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today attributed Gujarat’s all round development to the women’s participation and contribution in various fields.

The government has improved the condition of these anganwadi workers during the last ten years.

Mr. Modi said the government has allocated Rs.400-crore during the new financial year’s budget to construct newly designed 12,000 Nandan Ghars across the state, each provided with a cooking gas connection, instead of the earlier practice of fuel wood ovens.
