Politics of water: Worst monsoon in Gujarat in last 11 years
December 14, 2012 | Duration: 2 min, 30 sec

It's unlikely that the Chief Minister's recent announcement of filling Saurashtra dams with one million acre feet of Narmada waters cut any ice here since his earlier such promises have not been fulfilled. But politically, the Kutch-Saurashtra region is significant for Mr Modi. It accounts for 58 of the 182 seats and the BJP commands an overwhelming influence here. So can it take the region for granted?
