Flaunting the ‘Vikas Model’ of his home state Gujarat in the midst of Assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took a seaplane from Sabarmati riverfront in Ahmedabad to visit Amba ji temple in Mehsana.
As per reports, the plane will land at Dharoi Dam about 180 km away from Ahmedabad and PM Modi will then head to the famous Ambaji temple in Mehsana, the constituency of deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and the hotbed of patidar stir.
The seaplane take-off from the Sabarmati was Plan B after the PM’s roadshow in Ahmedabad on Tuesday was cancelled. His return journey would also be by the same sea-plane.
On last day of campaigning, many are calling it a masterstroke of PM Modi to showcase the development that has taken place under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the last 22 years.
Modi had tweeted about his seaplane journey on Monday night.
“Tomorrow at 9:30 AM I will travel from Sabarmati River in Ahmedabad to Dharoi Dam via sea plane. After that will offer prayers to Maa Amba at Ambaji. With air, roads & rail connectivity, our Government is making efforts for harnessing waterways. All this is for 125 crore Indians!,” he tweeted.
