Prime Minister Narendra Modi will open the landmark footbridge erected on the Sabarmati Riverfront between Ellis Bridge and Sardar Bridge On Saturday, August 27.
Last week, as India commemorated its 75th anniversary of independence, Ahmedabad’s well-known tourist destination Sabarmati Riverfront reached a decade old.
By building a foot-over bridge between Ellis Bridge and Sardar Bridge, additional attraction has been created with the interest of tourists and other visitors in mind. The Sabarmati Riverfront’s east and west sides are connected by this 300-meter bridge.
In a release, it was said that “this bridge would give connectivity to multi-level parking and diverse public projects on East and West Bank from plaza between Flower Park and Event Ground at West Bank to projected Art / Cultural / Exhibition Centre on East Bank.”
In addition, the prime minister will dedicate the “Veer Balak Memorial” in the Kutchi village of Anjar on Sunday.
185 schoolchildren and 20 instructors who were during a demonstration in the Kutch town of Anjar on January 26, 2001, were buried under the wreckage of surrounding houses. The world was aware of the sorrow of this situation. Narendra Modi, who was the chief minister at the time, declared that a memorial will be built in honour of these kids.
The Prime Minister will dedicate this memorial when it is finished outside of Anjar city. The building of this memorial was finished under the direction of Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel. At the inauguration, 100 members of the deceased’s family are invited.
