The Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week addressed a public meeting at Chotila, in Surendranagar district. He laid the Foundation Stones for a greenfield airport for Rajkot; six-laning of Ahmedabad-Rajkot National Highway; and four-laning of Rajkot-Morbi State Highway. He also dedicated to the nation, a fully automatic milk processing and packaging plant; and a drinking water distribution pipeline for Joravarnagar and Ratanpur area of Surendranagar.
The Prime Minister said that it was hard to imagine an airport in Surendranagar district. He said such development works empower citizens. He said aviation cannot be about rich people. We have made aviation affordable and within reach of the lesser privileged, he added.
