New Delhi: It was a nostalgic moment for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he recalled his days as the Chief Minister of Gujarat when he saw few people after 12-15 years at the inauguration of Garvi Gujarat Bhawan here on Monday.
"I am seeing some of you after 12-15 years. There are faces, which have devoted their lives for Gujarat... Anyone could have cut the ribbon. But I am glad that I got this opportunity as I am able to meet you all," Prime Minister Modi beginning if his speech.
The Prime Minister said that he is happy to see the 'culture of completing projects on time developing' in the government agencies. "I would like to congratulate people involved in the construction of this excellent building before the scheduled time. I am happy that the habit of completing projects on time is developing in government agencies," he said.
He also said that due to the formation of BJP governments at both Centre and State, obstacles in the development of Gujarat have been removed.
Hailing the 'Garvi Gujarat Bhawan' building, the Prime Minister said, "This might be a model of mini-Gujarat, but at the same time this is also a proof of that 'New India' where we talk of going forward while linking our cultural heritage with modernisation. We want to stay grounded and touch the skies." Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani was also present at the event.
