In Kedarnath PM Modi Seeks Blessings For A'Developed India By 2022

"I know how many challenges I had faced for the development of Gujarat", he said attacking the Congress-led UPA government. People at the Center were like that. He asserted that Government's consistent approach are developing Gujarat's coastal belt at a rapid pace.

"All over, industries were threatened to be closed down in the name of environment. Over the last three years, we have changed that and given importance to the development of Gujarat", he said.

"It seems implementation of all good works are my luck".

Mr Modi will inaugurate the first phase of the 615 crore rupees Roll-on Roll-off (Ro Ro) ferry service between Ghogha in Bhavnagar district and Dahej in Bharuch in the Gulf of Cambay. It is a landmark project in the entire South-East Asian region because it is the first of its kind service. "Its a dream come true for people of Gujarat", he said. The Prime Minister, who was addressing a gathering after launching RO-RO ferry service in Ghogha, added that the service will also be a "model project" for other states in India.

He said it were his efforts that gave birth to this ferry service which he had heard about only in his school days.

The Prime Minister said besides making the lives of crores of people easier, the service also brings them closer and saves fuel by decreasing the number of vehicles on the road.

"This ferry service will not be restricted to this one route".

"If we have a look at the figures which have come recently, the production of coal, electricity, natural gas and other items has increased tremendously. From this holy land of Kedarnath, I seek the blessings of Bhole Baba and pledge to devote myself fully to realising the dream of a developed India by the time we mark 75 years of freedom in 2022", he added.

The ferry service is a first of sorts.

On the day, Modi also laid foundation stones of five major reconstruction projects at Kedarpuri while also attacking the Congress for not allowing him to carry out relief work after the 2013 deluge. It is meant for passengers and would carry 500 of them at a time.

Prior to that, Modi had visited his home town Vadnagar on October 8 and also inaugurated and laid foundation stones of various projects in Rajkot, Vadnagar, Gandhinagar, and Bharuch.
