Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday inaugurated a two-day national conference of environment ministers of several states at Ekta Nagar in Gujarat's Narmada district via video conference. During this, PM Modi addressed the environment ministers of various states and said that due to our track record of fulfilling our commitments, the world is also connecting with India today.

Addressing the program, Modi targeted urban naxals and 'anti-development elements' with political support and said that for many years the construction of Sardar Sarovar Dam on Narmada river was put on hold in the name of environment. He said that the work which was started by the first Prime Minister of the country, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was completed after my arrival. 

He further said that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel played a big role in constructiom of the resevoir and Pandit Nehru had laid its foundation stone. But, all the urban naxalites came in the field and the people of the world came making false propaganda, campaigned that it is anti-environment. It was stopped repeatedly. This shows how much money of the country has wasted.

Modi alsso said, "I would urge all the environment ministers of the country to promote circular economy as much as possible in the states. This will also give strength to our campaign of Solid Waste Management and freedom from single use plastic. Nowadays we see that in the states where there was abundance of water, the ground water used to remain above, there is a shortage of water today. This challenge is not only of the water related department, but the environment department will also have to consider it as an equally big challenge."
