Good to see that development (though of religious importance) brings the opposite poles together! Hope that this project gets completed soon – in a stroke as it has already been delayed since 1994 and its project costs must have reached many times of that project @ ’94.
The treasury and opposition benches appeared to be united in the state Assembly on Friday over the issue of construction of a ropeway over the Girnar hills. The place is home to dozens of Hindu and Jain temples where lakhs of people from the state and outside visit every year. During the discussions on the issue after a question raised by BJP MLA Kanubhai Bhalana, state Congress president and Dabhoi MLA Siddharth Patel said it is a project of vital importance for the development of Junagadh. He said the project has found support from local trade and commerce organisations as well as social and cultural bodies. Patel said his party would support the government on the issue of development.
Leader of the Opposition Shaktisinh Gohil said he had personally taken up the matter with the Union Forests and Environment Minister, urging him to give clearance to the project soon.
