    Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had called the project as "Gujarat’s lifeline" noting that the agriculture income and production of farmers in the state more than doubled because of it. The event will take place at Kevadia in Narmada district. The delay in the completion of the dam was due to numerous reasons.
