The newly built eco-friendly Kakorikota Pabna Anganwadi center in Majuli, built with old plastic bottles is indeed a wonderful initiative, which will provide a vibrant environment for children.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Cong govt must ensure outstanding dues of Rs 284 cr to sugarcane growers is released immediately.
Akali Dal also calls for an increase in State Assured Price of cane, which has been the same for 3 yrs.
If these demands aren’t met, Akali Dal will launch an agitation for cane growers.
Capt Amarinder has turned a blind eye to cane farmers.
Sugar mills must pay within 14 days of purchase or pay interest.
Why is the CM allowing private sugar mills to break rules & go unpunished?
If growers aren’t paid on time, it will also damage Punjab’s diversification plans.

Repeal the anti-farm laws.
Dharmendra Pradhan – Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas:
Dedication of the ambitious Kochi-Mangaluru natural gas pipeline by PM Shri Narendra Modi today is a historic moment in our journey towards becoming a gas-based economy.
This will usher a clean fuel-led development for the people of Kerala and Karnataka.
Grateful to PM Narendra Modi ji for his commitment towards reducing carbon footprints and mitigating climate change.
This ambitious national project has seen the light of day due to PM Modi’s clear-cut roadmap and efforts for adopting green pathways.
Gujarat under the Chief Ministership of PM Narendra Modi two decades ago had led the way in emerging as a gas-hub.
Gujarat’s current share of natural gas in its primary energy mix is 26%, 2% above the global average of 24%.
I am equally thankful to the people of Kerala and Karnataka, CM Shri Pinarayi Vijayan and CM Shri BS Yediyurappa for their support in completing this futuristic project. There can be no better example of cooperative federalism than this.
Kochi-Mangaluru natural gas pipeline will be a major driver of development for both Kerala and Karnataka.
This will further propel our efforts towards facilitating ease-of-living for citizens, facilitating ‘One Nation, One Grid’ and achieving Urja Aatmanirbharta.
Pinarayi Vijayan – Chief Minister, Kerala:

The success of the project is a manifestation of the change in the way business is conducted in the State.
Ashok Gehlot, CM, Rajasthan :
Cases of new corona strain from Britain are increasing in India. GoI should reconsider the decision to resuming flights from Britain after 7 January.
If flights from foreign countries were stopped in January, 2020 at the beginning of Corona, this situation probably would not have happened today.
GoI must ensure that after resuming the flights from Britain, new strain does not spread like the old virus.
I appeal to all who have come back from Britain in the recent times, should come further for their corona test to prevent this new strain from spreading further.
Arvind Kejriwal, CM, Delhi :

On behalf of the DMK, I extend my congratulations & best wishes to Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia for this initiative.MK Stalin, President DMK

PM Narendra Modi dedicates the Kochi – Mangaluru Natural Gas Pipeline to the nation :
Kochi-Mangaluru Natural Gas Pipeline will have a positive impact on economic growth. It is an example that if we work together, nothing is impossible.
It is an honour to dedicate the 450 km Kochi-Mangaluru Natural Gas Pipeline to the nation. I congratulate the people & all stakeholders for taking steps for providing clean energy infrastructure.
The Kochi-Mangaluru pipeline is an example that if everyone works together by prioritizing development, no goal is unachievable.
It is not just a pipeline but it will be a major driver of development in both states. India is focusing on a gas-based economy & a lot of work is being done on ‘One Nation, One Gas Grid’. Gas-based economy is also crucial for Aatma Nirbhar Bharat.
The Kochi-Mangaluru pipeline will increase the ease of living for millions of people in both the states. This pipeline will reduce the expenses of the poor, middle class and entrepreneurs of both the states.
There are those who are stuck in time, there are those who flow with time, and there are those who change the time, and there are yet others who surpass the time, go beyond the time and realize that the whole universe is nothing but One Eternal Life:
