Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said this Central Government would function with greater zeal, dedication and speed than in its first stint to achieve the goal of “one India, great India.”

Addressing a gathering after offering prayers to goddess Narmada at the Sardar Sarovar dam filled to capacity for the first time, the PM said besides Gujarat, the Narmada project would benefit the people of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan and contribute in the speedy development of the country. 

He also lauded the vision of Sardar Patel, adding the BJP-led government’s decision last month on Jammu and Kashmir was “an inspiration” from India’s former home minister. The Union government’s decision on Kashmir is inspired by Sardar Patel and is an attempt to find a solution to a decades-old problem, Modi, who turned 69 on Tuesday, said at a public rally here. “The country has taken an important decision with the inspiration of Sardar Patel, to walk a new path to resolve a decades-old problem,” the PM said.

“The people are witnessing that Patel’s dreams are being achieved one by one and I am confident that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will soon join the road to development and trust,” he said. Modi claimed that the discrimination the people of J&K faced in the past 70 years gave rise to violence and separatism.
