‘Result-oriented Budget will boost up Narmada’

By Our Correspondent
Ahmedabad, Feb. 22:



Chairman of Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd. Bhupendrasinh Chudasma said allocation of Rs 1,330 crores for Sardar Sarovar project would give momentum to the project.

He said the state government was determined to complete the project and an action plan to rehabilitate project-affected people.

Allocation of Rs 640 crores for water and sanitation programmes in Kutch, Saurashtra, North Gujarat and Panchmahals would solve water scarcity in these regions to a great extent, he added.

Gujarat ex-MLA council has welcomed the budget for year 2000-2001 as result-oriented, the fruits of which will be reaped in the coming years.

The council appreciated allocation of Rs 1,330 crores for the Sardar Sarovar Project, inclusion of 20 crops in National Agriculture Insurance Scheme and allocation of funds for ground water recharging.

Industry and parliamentary affairs minister Mr Suresh Mehta described the budget as “development-oriented for trade and industry.” Constitution of a separate commissionerate for trade and industry will open avenues for further development, said the industry minister.

He also welcomed 55 per cent increase in budgetary allocation for industry.

Health minister Mr Ashok Bhatt said the proposed budget is development-oriented and human resource development will receive considerable impetus.
