Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan addressed a programme for [email protected] in Indore on Sunday and lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the construction of Sardar Sarovar Dam.
“PM Modi was then Gujarat Chief Minister while I was Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister. We both decided to bring out the hidden agenda of people who were against the dam. If PM Modi wouldn’t have been the then CM of Gujarat, Sardar Sarovar Dam wouldn’t have been there. He knew it was for the welfare of both the states,” said Chouhan. He also highlighted that the dam had helped both the states flourish.
“River Narmada is crucial both in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Both states are flourishing due to it. Many people who were against the dam project on river Narmada created multiple hindrances,” he added.
