PM Narendra Modi Birthday Celebrations Highlights: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who turned 69 on Tuesday, visited Kevadiya in Gujarat to take part in the ‘Namami Narmada’ festival being celebrated by the western state’s government to mark the filling up of the Sardar Sarovar Dam (SSD) to its full reservoir level of 138.68 metres.
Modi lauded the vision of Sardar Patel, adding the BJP-led government’s decision last month on Jammu and Kashmir was an inspiration from the former home minister of India. The Union government’s decision on Kashmir is inspired
by Sardar Patel and is an attempt to find solution to a decades-old problem, Modi said at a public rally.
The Prime Minister participated in Namami Narmade Mahotsava, an event organised by the state government to mark the occasion of the Sardar Sarovar Dam crossing its Full Reservoir Level (FRL) of 138.68 metres.
Born on September 17, 1950, in Vadnagar (Gujarat), PM Modi is widely credited for being at the helm of the largest non-Congress government at the Centre since Independence. The BJP single-handedly won 303 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, reducing the Grand Old Party to 52 seats.
