“Looking forward to being in Gujarat today for the launch of SAUNI Yojana. This scheme will truly benefit the people of Gujarat,” Modi tweeted on Tuesday.
Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation – SAUNI was a project launched by Modi in September 2012.
The project aims at diverting the floodwater from Sardar Sarovar Dam to several dams of the water scarce Saurasthra region trhough a network of canal and pipelines.
This would help with irrigation of 4.13 lakh hectares land in draught prone Saurashtra.
