New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a visit to Gujarat, on Sunday said that his home state is emerging as an LNG hub of the country. "Gujarat is emerging as an LNG hub of India. This should make every Gujarati proud," he said.
"The inauguration of the LNG terminal is the highlight of today's programme. I am fortunate to have inaugurated 3 LNG terminals. Now, we are poised to make fourth LNG terminal," he added.
The Prime Minister was addressing an event organised to inaugurate the Mundra LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal, the Anjar-Mundra pipeline project and the Palanpur-Pali-Barmer pipeline project.
Stressing that the Kutch has transformed in the last two decades, PM Modi said, "Everyone can see how Kutch has changed in the last 20 years.
