Save girl child, save water: Modi to people of north Gujarat

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday called upon people of north Gujarat to embark on ‘Beti Bachavo’ (Save Girl Child) and ‘Pani Bachavo’ (Save Water) campaigns.

Addressing a huge gathering of Samasta Anjana Chaudhary Samaj at Arbudadham, Modi asked people to stop discriminating between boy and girl and refrain from female foeticide.

The Gujarat Chief Minister also appealed farmers to save water and make use of drip irrigation as the economy in north Gujarat is based chiefly on agriculture and animal husbandry.

Pran-pratishtha mahotsav of Goddess Arbuda at Arbuda Dham, kuldevi of Samasta Anjana Chaudhary Samaj, concluded today. On the occasion, women of Anjana community vowed for undertaking the campaigns against female foeticide and for conservation of water.

Offering prayers at the temple of Goddess Arbuda, Modi said that it is a historical event to build a temple for social awareness and the efforts of all those who have contributed for this cause is worth appreciation.

The Gujarat Chief Minister said our culture has worshiped mothers from ages in various forms such as Goddess Amba, Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Bahuchar and Goddess Anjani, among others. It is contradictory to worship female power at one hand and to kill female foetus on the other. “With such a cultural backdrop it is necessary that our society take vow for refraining from the sin of female foeticide. Besides, the female foeticide will also disturb natural cycle and the gender balance in the society”, he said.

    This is what makes Narendra Modi apart from other politicians. Because he is a statesman, not just a politician. “A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.”

    He really knows how to connect with Indian people. That too positively and consistently.
