New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated modern food processing facilities  including dairy major Amul’s ultra modern Chocolate plant on Sunday at Anand, Gujarat.

The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone for the expansion of Amul manufacturing facilities at Anand and Khatraj and addressed a gathering there.


Lauding the brand he said: “The brand of Amul is known the world over. It has become an inspiration. This is an excellent model of empowerment. In various parts of the world, at various times we saw what socialism is, we also saw capitalism. But, through Amul Sardar Patel showed another way. Here is a way where neither Govt or industrialists call the shots. It's the people who matter.”

He said: “We are focussing on Jan Dhan, Van Dhan and Gobar Dhan. This will help our farmers.”

He said: “In a few years, Amul will complete 75 years. Let us think about what targets Amul can set for their own 75th anniversary and for 2022, when India marks 75 years of freedom.”

Modi is also expected to travel to Anjar where he will inaugurate Mundra LNG terminal, Anjar-Mundra Pipeline Project and Palanpur-Pali-Barmer pipeline project.

The Prime Minister will then head for Rajkot where he will inaugurate the Mahatma Gandhi Museum. The museum has been set up at the Alfred High School in Rajkot, which was an important part of the formative years of Mahatma Gandhi.

It will help spread awareness about Gandhian culture, values and philosophy. The Prime Minister will also unveil a plaque to mark the inauguration of a public housing project of 624 houses. He will witness the e-Gruh Pravesh (ritual of entering the house formally for the first time) of 240 beneficiary families.
