Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi visited the BSF Jawans at Dharamshala Border Post at the India-Pakistan border in Kutch, on the occasion of Independence Day. Dedicating a war memorial and water supply pipeline on the occasion, Modi profusely lauded the contribution of BSF in safeguarding the borders of the nation.

Asserting that is indeed a matter of immense pride that “these Jawans are ready to fight for the Tricolour in every circumstances, including in this desert district of Kutch,” Modi inaugurated the 27.50 kms long pipeline. This will carry water from River Narmada and permanently solve the drinking water issues of BSF Jawans. It will also reach the further most post at the India-Pakistan border, said sources.

At a time when security of the nation is under immense threat, Modi spoke out against the Central government’s decision of withdrawinng the BSF’s right to retaliate at India-Bangladesh border. Modi affirmed that “it is the right of every soldier to have the honour to fight for the country” and demanded that “this order preventing them to do so must be immediately withdrawn by the Centre.”

Narendra Modi also announced that the Gujarat Government has waived off VAT on those commodities that are available at the canteen for Jawans.
