Speaking at the event, a teary-eyed prime minister mentioned that he was in dilemma whether he should cancel this event or not, but knowing the significance of water supply projects in Banaskantha and the love of the people, he emboldened his spirit and came forward to inaugurate these projects worth more than Rs 8000 crores.

“I was in a dilemma… this (the inauguration) is a developmental project… should I attend or not? It is your love and support… and my duty-bound beliefs that I braved with a strong mind and presented myself before you all,” he said adding that Gujarat has faced many tragedies in the past.

The Prime Minister underlined that these projects will help in irrigation facilities to more than six districts of Gujarat including Banaskantha, Patan and Mehsana. Recalling the tough times that the state has faced in the past, the Prime Minister said that it is the undying spirit of the people of Gujarat that gives them the strength to deal with any adversity with whatever resources they have.
