On his birthday, PM Modi to inaugurate world's second biggest dam

The foundation stone for the grand project was laid on April 5, 1961, by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Huge hoardings and banners dot the streets with pictures of PM Modi.

Three days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurates the Sardar Sarovar Dam, the families displaced by the dam in Madhya Pradesh protested on Thursday by shaving off their heads.

"Modi will inaugurate Narmada Dam at Kevadiya in the presence of religious leaders and others". The height of the dam was then increased to 138 metres raising its storage capacity to 4.73 million cubic metres from the earlier 1.27 million cubic metres.

Government sources claim that irrigation from the project is expected to benefit about 10 lakh farmers and drinking water to be supplied to various villages and towns, is likely to benefit up to four crore people.

September 17 also happens to be the birthday of PM Modi.

The Congress on its part alleged that while the dam project would have been complete, the benefits would not accrue to farmers in the state due to non-availability of sub-canals in sufficient numbers.

From the dam site, the Prime Minister will travel to Sadhu Bet, where the Statue of Unity, an iconic statue and associated memorial complex for Sardar Patel, is now under construction. The gates of the country's highest dam were closed the following day. Modi will visit the site of "Statue of Unity", created to be the world's highest, being built to commemorate Sardar Patel's contribution in uniting 565 erstwhile princely states at the time of India's Independence.

The dam has already earned Rs 16,000 crore, which is more than double the cost of the mega structure.

57 per cent of the electricity produced from the dam goes to Maharashtra, while Madhya Pradesh gets 27 per cent and 16 per cent goes to Gujarat.

He will also lay the foundation stone for National Tribal Freedom Fighters' Museum during the event.

Talking about her protest, Medha Patkar said, "The two dams have not yet reached the optimum levels, in fact, there is no rain upstream, the Bargi and Tawa dams too are much below their optimum levels, but water is being released so that there is water for the inauguration ceremony".

The court allowed resumption of work in October 2000.
