Surat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his two-day visit to Gujarat on Thursday dedicated numerous projects totaling more than Rs 3,400 crore in Surat and laid the cornerstone for several others. He will open the 36th National Games, which are being held in the state for the first time. The Prime Minister was hailed by a sizable gathering upon his arrival in Surat.
Since Gujarat’s double engine government was formed, the construction of houses has also quickened, and the poor and the middle class in Surat are also receiving several additional facilities. According to PM Modi, the Ayushman Bharat scheme has provided free care to approximately 4 crore low-income patients in the country so far.
On Wednesday, PM Modi tweeted photos from a drone show in Ahmedabad, ahead of his visit to Gujarat. The Ahmedabad night sky lit up to prepare for the National Games opening.
Addressing a rally, he said, “It’s my privilege to lay the foundation stone for infrastructure, sports, and spiritual destinations in Gujarat during the ongoing celebrations of Navratri. Surat is a great example of “Jan Bhagidari” and unity. People from across India live in Surat. It’s mini-India.”
I am delighted to be in the dynamic city of Surat, where multiple development projects are underway. “Surat is a symbol of togetherness,” the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi has a hectic schedule as he has to visit Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Surat, Bhavnagar, and Ambaji on Thursday and Friday, where he is likely to lay foundation stones for development projects or dedicate them to the public.
The city of Surat is a wonderful example of both people’s solidarity and public participation. “There will not be any region of India whose people do not live here,” he added.
