PM Narendra Modi Wraps Up Gujarat Campaign With An Appeal To Voters: Highlights

Gujarat Election 2017: PM Narendra Modi said 106 water-ways have been planned in the country.

New Delhi: 
PM Modi began his travel in a seaplane from Sabarmati river in the city to Dharoi dam in Mehsana district, the first-ever flight by such a craft in the country. His return journey would also be by the same seaplane. The Congress "can't even imagine development work like this," said the Prime Minister, taking a dig at the opposition party which has recently pointed to the absence of any mention of "development" from the BJP in the political discourse in Gujarat. In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister added: "We won't be able to build airports everywhere so we will focus on waterways". He said as many as 106 such water-ways have been planned in the country. Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said this is for the first time in the history of the country that a seaplane will land on a water body and that will be the Sabarmati river.

Here are the highlights of PM Modi's last day of Gujarat election campaigning:
