"Jann ki Baat" will form part of the 20-day celebrations the BJP has planned to mark the Modi government's three years in office beginning May 26, the day he was sworn-in as prime minister in 2014.

From the time the BJP led by Keshubhai Patel came to power in the state in 1998, till the present dispensation led by Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Gujarat has focused on making arrangements to bring permanent solution to water woes, the prime minister said. "For cost-effective farming, there is a need for water", said Modi, mentioning schemes like PM Krishi Sichai Yojana and interlinking of rivers.

Addressing the public meeting after the dedication of the pumping station, Mr Modi appealed the people of Kutch to use the water judiciously.

Earlier, Modi laid foundation of infrastructure projects, including a state-of-art Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Convention Center, construction of berth 14 and 16, mechanization of fertilizer handling, interchange-cum-road overbridge among others at the KPT.

The pumping station has been constructed at a cost of Rs. 148 crore. "There should be more production in less land", Modi said while releasing a two-part book series on renowned agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan at his residence here. "Deendayal stood for the poor.(so this name change) will inspire us to work for the poor, suppressed section of society", he added.

This is Modi's third visit to Gujarat in the election year, as assembly polls are expected to be held in the state later this year. On March 8, he had visited Gandhinagar to address women sarpanches on the International Women's Day.
