Ahmedabad: In the next six months, a high-speed railway will start operating between Ahmedabad and Sanand, according to Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw's announcement on Saturday. The news that Vande Bharat Express trains would also stop in Sanand was made by Vaishnaw during the groundbreaking ceremony for the Micron semiconductor facility in Sanand.
The impending high-speed train was highlighted by the railway minister, who emphasized its superior quality and the convenience it will offer travellers between Ahmedabad and Sanand. The region's communication and transportation alternatives are anticipated to receive a considerable boost as a result of this endeavor.
In a related development, Gujarat's rail connectivity will be significantly improved when Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially opens the Jamnagar-Ahmedabad Vande Bharat Express on September 24.
Vaishnaw talked about the expanding significance of the semiconductor ecosystem in addition to transportation. In the upcoming years, he anticipated, the demand for chips will soar to Rs 5 lakh crore. In line with the goal of Prime Minister Modi, he emphasized the significance of developing and producing semiconductors in India, with Gujarat setting the standard in this vital sector.
In other news, the major purpose of the Sardar Sarovar dam, according to Congress leader Jay Narayan Vyas, is to prevent floods in villages downstream. However, poor water release management led to severe flooding and significant damage to crops and property.
Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL), in the meantime, reaffirmed on Friday that successful water release management has prevented losses in downstream sections of the dam.
SSNNL stated that significant rainfall happened on September 16 and 17, not earlier, citing data from rain gauge stations. Speaking at the GPCC headquarters, Vyas claimed that beginning on September 6, rain began to fall heavily in the dam's catchment areas. “Release of water from the dam should have started on September 14 or 15, but for some unknown reason, it was not done,” he said.
