Ahmedabad, 23 September 2012

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today made an announcement to set up a new textile park in Surendranagar district.

Modi said the youths of Surendranagar will get employment in proposed textile park. More youths will be employed here compare to the proposed plant of Maruti.

He also announced Rs 200 crore for irrigation scheme covering 2.75 acre land of Dhrangadhra, Vadhvan, Halvad, Dasada and Lakhtar.

Attacking the Congress party, Shri Modi said that while Congress was distributing papers on Rakshabandhan day, we supplied Narmada water through the canals. Modi said the Congress party was showing dreams of Narmada water for last three generations. The Congress government in centre doesn’t permit to construct gates over the Narmada dam, which shows their direction of working, Modi said.
