Nature our jewel and dear to us.” he said. The Prime Minister, who is celebrating his 69th birthday today, said that the government’s focus is on ‘per drop more crop’, adding that 19 lakh hectare land in Gujarat is now under micro irrigation. He further said that 133-year-old State of Liberty gets 10,000 visitors per day but 8,500 people visit 11-month-old Statue of Unity daily. On scrapping of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, he said that the BJP government’s decision on Kashmir was inspired by Sardar Patel and an attempt to find solution to decades-old problem.

Earlier today, PM Modi visited the Statue of Unity and the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the river Narmada in his home state of Gujarat. The Statue of Unity, billed as the tallest in the world, was inaugurated by him on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth anniversary on October 31 last year. There were reports that he filmed a video of the Statue of Unity from his helicopter. He also visited various developmental projects being carried out near the dam and Statue of Unity to boost tourism. These projects include river rafting, a jungle safari park, a butterfly park and Ekta Nursery. He also visited the Khalvani Eco-Tourism site. In the safari, he apparently spotted deer. His visit also marks the start of the ‘Namami Narmada’ festival being celebrated by the Gujarat government to mark the filling up of the Sardar Sarovar Dam on Narmada river to its full reservoir level of 138.68 metres.
