PM in Guj to inaugurate solar scheme
Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a whirlwind one-day visit to his home state Gujarat on Sunday, where a packed schedule awaits him.
The Prime Minister will launch the country’s first ever cooperative society of farmers, under the Gujarat government’s SKY scheme, in Anand. The scheme will help farmers install solar panels in their farms and generate energy they can use to operate water pumps, while the surplus power can be sold to a power distribution company.
PM Modi will then inaugurate a chocolate plant of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which owns Amul, at Mogar village in Anand. Other projects under the GCMMF, with a total investment of Rs 1,120 crore, will also be launched. These include production of milk powder, ghee and butter at Bhat village near Gandhinagar.
