New Delhi, Oct 7: Days after inaugurating the ambitious Sardar Sarovar Narmada Project, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday yet again arrived in his poll-bound home state of Gujarat for a two-day visit. PM Modi kickstarted the tour by offering prayers at the Dwarkadheesh Temple in the historic Dwarka town.
He will lay the foundation stone for a four-lane cable-stayed signature bridge between Okha and Bet Dwarka to be built at a cost of Rs. 962 crore. The Prime Minister will also address a public gathering in Dwarka.
According to the reports, the Prime Minister is expected to address as many as six public meetings while launching various schemes and developmental projects at five places in three regions of the state.
A few days back, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who toured the Saurashtra region for a three-day campaign, also began his visit with prayers at the Dwarkadheesh temple and subsequently paid salutations to the local deity in Chotila.
