Rural development is a term coined by the late, great former President Indira Gandhi.
It is a concept that has become a defining theme of the Narendra Modi government’s policies in the state.
Modi is known for his emphasis on rural development, which includes roads, electricity, and water projects.
He has also promised to build 1.5 lakh villages by 2022.
He also wants to build 5 lakh solar power projects in Gujarat by 2022, and 10 lakh homes by 2022 as well.
But it was a project in Gujarat that Modi was known to be the most committed to in his first term.
In the state’s first five years of government, the government allotted around Rs 5,000 crore for development of rural areas, with Rs 5 lakh crore being allocated for infrastructure projects.
The government allocated another Rs 2,000-crore for roads, Rs 500 crore for roads and highways, Rs 300 crore for power projects and Rs 75 crore for water projects, with an additional Rs 5 crore being set aside for the purpose of infrastructure.
This was in spite of a drought situation that saw over 3.5 million people in Gujarat die due to lack of water and a major dam failure that shut down the state for over a week in November 2014.
Modis government has been credited with building rural development as well, but this has not always been the case.
In Gujarat, despite the drought situation, roads were not built and highways were not upgraded.
Instead, roads and railways were constructed with a view to linking them with the rest of the country.
This did not help the people of the state, and the rural population suffered from the absence of adequate infrastructure.
This has meant that the state has had one of the lowest population growth rates in the country, as compared to other states.
The population in Gujarat has also been a major beneficiary of the Modi government, as they have seen growth of almost 13 per cent between 2010 and 2016.
In contrast, India’s GDP growth rate has been around 6.8 per cent.
This was the backdrop for the current controversy in the State over the allocation of funds to farmers, who had suffered from poor infrastructure, lack of infrastructure and lack of money for development.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court said that it was considering the matter.
The bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that the funds were being used to promote and maintain the infrastructure and to promote the farmers of the State.
This included providing subsidies for irrigation and electricity projects, and building roads and bridges.
In the first hearing on the matter, the bench had reserved its verdict in a case filed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against the State government.
In its reply to the BJP, the State Government argued that it had given the funds for infrastructure, which it did not have to do, but did so in order to promote agricultural production.
The government also claimed that it has invested Rs 3,200 crore in roads, highways and bridges and Rs 50 crore in irrigation projects.
The BJP has also argued that the State had been allotted funds for development for the development of its agricultural sector, but it was not given a share of the funds.
The apex court also said that while the Centre had provided the funds, the States had to allocate them in the form of an allocation plan.
The allocation plan, the Centre said, must be approved by the States and submitted to the Centre.
In a statement, the Union Minister of State for Rural Development and Tribal Affairs, Prakash Javadekar, said the State has been allotted the funds in a manner consistent with the allocation plan and that it is a matter to be decided by the State Governance Commission.
