Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi dedicates an alleged incomplete Sardar Sarovar Dam to the Nation yesterday ( 17/09/2017)
Occasion : His own 67th Birthday.

Why incomplete : Despite Gujarat been ruled by the BJP since past 22 Years, this project remains allegedly incomplete as Canals of 43,000 km length are yet to be built.

Foundation stone of Sardar Sarovar Project on the Narmada river was laid on 5th April 1961 by the then ‘perspicacious & sagacious’ PM Pt. Jawaharlal_Nehru. The construction of this huge Dam began in 1987.

Interestingly, this 1.2 Kms long & 163 Mts deep Canal has covered more than double of its cost by producing 4,141 Cr Units of Electricity and in turn earning over Rs.16,000 Cr.

The installed Capacity of the Dam’s two Power houses is 1,200 MW & 250 MW resp.

Of the total electricity produced, Maharashtra gets 57%, MP 27% & Gujarat 16%.

Only_regret : 40,000 families in 192 Villages of MP and 18,380 families of Gujarat are reported to be affected due to this Construction. Noted Social activist Ms. Medha Patkar has been championing the cause of the displaced families & has been agitating on their behalf.
