Bharuch/Anand: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of various development projects in Gujarat. The Prime Minister lauded the progress of the Bharuch region over the years, saying “Bharuch`s contribution to the progress of Gujarat and the country is very important.

PM Modi also said has was able to resolve the long-pending Kashmir issue as he is walking in the footsteps of Sardar Patel. 

“Sardar saheb persuaded all the princely states to merge with India. But another person handled this one issue of Kashmir,” Modi said, without naming India’s first prime minister. 

He added, “As I am following the footsteps of Sardar saheb, I have values of the land of Sardar and that was the reason I resolved the problem of Kashmir and paid true tributes to Sardar Patel.”
