Over the last six decades, the Sardar Sarovar Dam on Narmada faced many hurdles but India overcame them with her "blood and sweat" Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today. The inauguration of the world's second largest dam coincides with the PM's 67th birthday. "The World Bank said it would not fund the project," the Prime Minister said in his address at a public meeting in Dabhoi, an hour's drive from Ahmedabad, after the dam's inauguration. The World Bank, he said, alleged the dam would ruin the environment. "It did all it can to ensure India cannot have such a mega project... But India too had decided that World Bank or no World Bank, we would build the Sardar Sarovar Dam," he added.
