The BJP government in Madhya Pradesh Tuesday dedicated to public the ambitious Narmada-Kshipra-Simhastha project.
By linking the two rivers, the government hopes to create a perennial source of water for the Malwa region that depends on Kshipra, which remains dry for most of the year.
Two separate functions, the first held in Ujjaini, the origin of Kshipra in Indore district, and second at Ramghat in Ujjain, marked the elaborate dedication ceremony attended by top BJP leaders and saints.
“It’s the most important day in my life. My dream has come true,’’ Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said at Ujjaini. Party veteran L K Advani described the Rs 432-crore project a fulfilment of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s dream of linking rivers in the country. Without naming Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Advani said “both CMs keep performing miracles”.
