B’day boy Modi doles out goodies to tribals
Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi chose to make his 66th birthday special by spending time with his mother, tribals, and the differently abled ( divyangs).
After spending 25 minutes with his mother at her Gandhinagar residence, the PM arrived at the Limkheda town of Dahod district, where he addressed tribals and inaugurated a Rs 4,800- crore water supply project for the parched region.

I understood the region’s requirement for water, back when I was the state’s CM,” Modi said. Chief minister Vijay Rupani was also present at the event.

The FIR, accessed by dna, also sheds light on the alleged communal angle to the murders as the complainant reveals the conversations that apparently took place between him and some of
