On September 30, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone and dedicated several projects totaling over Rs 7,200 crores in Ambaji Gujarat's Banaskantha district.

The Prime Minister also handed over keys to seven recipients of various housing schemes and congratulated all 61,000 recipients. On this occasion, he dedicated and laid the foundation stone for the construction of over 45,000 houses under the PM Awas Yojana.

According to Prime Minister Modi, the Gujarat government will complete 1.50 lakh houses for Economically Weaker Sections and other groups by 2021. In 2021, 3 crore poor people across the country will benefit from the PM Awas Yojana, he added.

PM Modi laid groundwork for Taranga Hill

In addition, the Prime Minister laid the groundwork for the Taranga Hill - Ambaji - Abu Road New Broad Gauge Line. He revealed that the project was conceived during British rule in 1930. The need for this was recognised 100 years ago, but it was not accomplished in such a short period of time. "Perhaps, Maa Amba wished it to be done by me. It is our good fortune that in the year of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, we are getting this opportunity to dedicate this at the feet of Amba Mata," he said.

The Prime Minister said that his aim is to create so many attractions in the vicinity of Ambaji temple that people have to make a 2-3 days program to cover them. Prime Minister Modi asserted, "On one hand, Ambaji is the home of faith and worship while on the other hand, we have India's borders where our jawans are deployed."

He cited the development of the Seema Darshan project in Suigam on the international border. "People should visit and see the life of army jawans and learn from it, he has also hinted at developing Deesa Air Force station."

Chief Minister, Bhupendra Patel, Union Minister of Railways, Ashvini Vaishnav, Union Minister of State for Railways Darshana Vikram Jardosh, MPs C.R. Patil, Prabatbhai Patel, Bharasinh Dhabi and Dineshbhai Anavaidya were among those present on the occasion.
