PM Narendra Modi on Sunday morning tweeted, “Today is special because Phase 1 of the ferry service between Ghogha & Dahej would be inaugurated.” PM Modi is in poll-bound Gujarat today for the third time this month. PM Modi inaugurated the first phase of the Ghogha-Dahej RORO ferry service. PM Modi has said that Ghogha-Dahej RORO ferry service is his dream project. Here is all you need to know about this service to understand why it is PM Modi’s dream project:-

– The project’s cost of 1st phase of RORO service is around Rs 615 crore.

– RORO means ‘roll-on, roll-off (ro-ro)’

– It is a ferry service between Ghogha in Bhavnagar district and Dahej in Bharuch in the Gulf of Cambay.

– The ferry service will reduce the distance between the two towns from 310 kilometres by road to 30 kilometres

– PM Modi addressed a gathering in Ghogha and will undertake a journey to Dahej from Ghogha on the ferry.

– From Dahej, he will leave for Vadodara, where he is scheduled to inaugurate and lay the foundation stones for projects worth over Rs 1,140 crore.

– The first phase of the service to be inaugurated by PM Modi on Sunday is meant for passengers.

– In the second phase, which would be ready in two months, cars can also be carried between the two towns.

– It is a complex project which involves complicated marine structure of the Gulf of Cambay, on which it is built.

– The service reduces the distance between the two towns from 310 kilometres by road to 30 kilometres which can be covered in one hour

– Modi had laid the foundation stone for the project in January 2012, when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.

PM Modi’s visits assume significance as Assembly elections are due in Gujarat in December.

Last month, he hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Gujarat and launched the bullet train project. Modi had also dedicated to the nation the Sardar Sarovar Dam on river Narmada at an event coinciding with his 67th birthday.

        Great. Opposition attacking Mr Modi on this will not help them in the long run. The best strategy for them would be to openly say that they have got a new direction from their opponent Mr Modi and will now do more than him. After saying this, they should roll out their plan program for India. After this, they have to tackle match one more positive of Mr Modi and BJP. It is to project certain new faces who may remain corruption free. No harm, taking certain rich and high class persons like J. Sindhia etc. Project them for implementation of the program of Opposition. Also stop low level criticism of BJP and Mr Modi . Instead, they should suggest some well thought out modifications/alternatives etc for most of what the govetnment does. This will help Opposition and nation and will also raise the standard of politics in India which OTHER NATIONS OF THE WORLD WOULD LIKE TO COPY. By doing this, the opposition will make India "Vishwa Guru" in politics, in reply to BJP's similar slogan.

            For Ghogha Dahej Ro Ro Ferry Service Project there was no 1st phase and 2nd phase till end of 1st week this month (October, 2017). It was made because 800 ton link-span was not able to install in Ghogha due to high current of the sea in due time. Also Ro-Ro ship requires 6 meter draught which is not possible for dragging company to complete before next year. That's why GMB and Essar had installed walkway and announced that in 1st phase only passenger service will start and later in 2nd stage Cargo Ro Ro service will start.
