Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate a Rs 400-crore hospital in Surat run by a welfare trust, a cattle feed plant and an ice-cream facility of Surat District Co-operative Milk Producers Union at Bajipura village in Tapi district.
He will also inaugurate the first phase of an irrigation project at Botad in Saurashtra, and lay the foundation stone for the second phase of the scheme.
The scheme, Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation (SAUNI), aims to fill 115 dams in the parched Saurashtra region by diverting floodwaters overflowing from the Sardar Sarovar Dam across the Narmada river.
On March 8, PM Modi had addressed a convention of women sarpanch at Gandhinagar.
