The alertness of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the inauguration of a water project near here on Tuesday saved the lives of several cameramen and photographers, Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat Nitin Patel informed.

Speaking at a function here after Modi inaugurated the ambitious SAUNI project, Patel said that the Prime Minister was just looking at the flow of the water at the Aji-3 dam site after pushing a button to start the release from the dam.

“He suddenly noticed that several cameramen and photographers were standing on the downstream side. The strong flow of water released a little while ago was racing towards them and could have washed them away,” Patel said.

Busy taking photographs of the event, the cameramen and photographers were seemingly unaware of it. But by clapping his hands and with other gestures the Prime Minister alerted them and they escaped in time.

“If the PM had not alerted them, a big mishap could have happened,” Patel said.

    Leftists Congi busy writing ultra negative points. These pygmies were happy when Kashmir forced Hindus out. They were happy when large scale Muslims were being imported in to am and Bengal for their vote bank kitty. The same ultra negatives were not happy when all those sted Indians in Syria, Iraq, Saudi and other places were being saved against all odds. Growing up is not in their DNA. Elephants will keep on walking majestically street pygmies may keep on hauling.

      It is pathetic that we have such persons with ultra negative mind set. These handful of filthy brains no doubt can never appreciate a good deed. They refuse to grow up.

            He is a very active and caring Prime minister. Has watchful eye of a mother.
