Engineering miracle says Modi on Sardar Sarovar

AHMEDABAD, SEPTEMBER 17TH   Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat on his 67th birthday. Addressing a public meeting after the event, PM Modi called the dam an engineering marvel. "A massive misinformation campaign was launched against the dam project, which is an engineering miracle," he said. The foundation stone was laid by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru nearly six decades ago, on April 5, 1961. But, the construction began only in 1987. The Prime Minister said the Sardar Sarovar Dam will become a symbol of India's new and emerging power. It is the second biggest dam in the world after the Grand Coulee Dam in the United States.
