Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated via video conferencing the Ahmedabad-based Sardardham Bhavan and, in the same function, also performed the “Bhoomi Pujan” of the Sardardham Phase-II Kanya Chhatralaya (girls’ hostel). The two establishments, as their names suggest, are dedicated to the “Iron Man of India,” Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
PM Modi noted how Lord Ganesha is invoked before doing something new and, coincidentally, the Sardardham Bhavan is being inaugurated at a time when the nation is celebrating Ganeshotsav. “I have full faith that the Sardardham Bhavan will not only empower our future generations, but also inspire them to lead their lives by following principles followed by Sardar Patel in his life,” he remarked.
“All these youngsters will be in decisive roles by the time the country completed 100 years of independence in 2047,” Prime Minister Modi noted.
