Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

On the oc­ca­sion of his birth­day, Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia Naren­dra Modi in­au­gu­rated Hari Krishna Sarovar (Lake) through video con­fer­ence from Am­reli in Gujarat on Septem­ber 17th.

The lake is the brain­child of Hari Krishna Ex­ports founder Savji Dho­lakia, who hails from a small vil­lage named Dud­hala from this re­gion. It was con­structed from Dho­lakia’s own re­sources on 150 acres of land and was com­pleted in just 120 days.

Hari Krishna Lake was filled to ca­pac­ity fol­low­ing heavy rain­fall in the area. It is ex­pected to ben­e­fit about 22 vil­lages in the sur­round­ing ar­eas. The wa­ter level in this area is ex­pected to im­prove which will, in turn, help ir­ri­ga­tion farm­ing through the year, and yield around I100 crore or more to farm­ers of the area, the com­pany said.
