Narmada waters reach Gujarat villages

BARODA, APRIL 1. The Narmada waters have reached 1,467 villages and 29 cities of six districts of Gujarat following completion of work on Mahi pipeline at a cost of Rs. 880 crores, the Chief Minister, Mr. Keshubhai Patel, has said. The waters were released to four districts of Saurashtra today while two other districts started getting it last month. The six districts were Baroda, Ahmedabad, Amreli, Junagadh, Bhavnagar and Rajkot.

``Such a permanent solution to the water problem, benefitting a vast population and a large stretch of land, is unparalleled in the history of Gujarat,'' Mr. Patel said adding that this would also prevent large-scale migration.

The Government has taken up work on the project of supplying the river water to the districts of Kutch, Jamnagar and Surendranagar, and is expected to be completed by April-May 2002. With the river flowing through the Mahi canal-based, Vasavad- godal main pipeline, the water problem of north Gujarat and Saurashtra is expected to be solved, he added.
