Gujarat : Prime Minister Narendra Modi today while inaugurating the SAUNI irrigation project in Jamnagar, Gujarat averted a tragic accident by alerting a cameraman on time to move away from the dam.
A Doordarshan cameraman was standing near a spot close to the dam when PM Modi spotted him while he was addressing the crowd and alerted him to move away as the dam water would flow in a rush towards him.
The cameraman moved in the nick of time and thanked the PM. However, the camera was washed away. Which was then recovered later and the DD cameraman was also safe.
The inauguration site of the project is located at Sanosara village near Dhroll. At least 10 dams and reservoirs have been built under the project, located at Rajkot, Jamnagar and Morbi. All the dams will soon be filled up with the Narmada River water.
