Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister
Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the state`s model of development through
unity and harmony (sadhbhavna) in the past 10 years rooted out
Congress`s divide-and-rule politics.
"Gujarat`s model of development through unity and
harmony for last 10 years has uprooted the past Congress style of
divide-and-rule," he said, while speaking at his tenth day-
long district level fast as a part of the statewide Sadhbhavna
Mission at Ahwa in Dangs district.
"The vote-bank politics of rulers in Delhi has spread
atmosphere of gloom and dejection, while Gujarat provides the
ray of hope," he said.
Noting that earlier rulers (Congress) never bothered
much about tribals in the past 40 years, Modi said his government
had for the first time set up higher secondary schools with
science stream for tribals, which helped them become engineers
He also announced a slew of development projects,
worth around Rs 575 crore, for Dangs district.
The projects include roads renovation (Rs 185 crore),
drinking water projects (Rs 30 crore), educational
infrastructure (Rs 100 crore), Saputara hill station
development (Rs 77 crore) and Dandakaranya development, check
