Shah: Committed to developing border areas

Dhordo (Guj), November 12

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said infrastructure development in the country’s border areas in last six years of the Narendra Modi government has been much more than in the previous 50 years.

Referring to air strikes and surgical strike by the defence forces, Shah said India is now give a befitting reply to enemies rather than the past practice of just issuing a “diplomatic statement”.

He was addressing a gathering at the “Simant Kshetra Vikasotsav-2020” at Dhordo village in Gujarat’s Kutch district as part of the central government’s Border Area Development Programme.

Sarpanchs along with other elected representatives of Kutch, Banaskantha and Patan districts, which share land border with Pakistan, were present at the event.

Shah said the Central government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi was committed to develop areas situated along the country’s border.

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had stressed on stopping migration and providing water, electricity to the border villages. But, after his death, the Congress government did not implement it, Shah said. “But now, Modiji has taken up that task,” he said. — PTI
