Gujarat chief minister "misled" Niti Aayog: Ex-BJP CM Suresh Mehta

Gujarat’s Lokshahi Bachao Andolan (Save Democracy Campaign), which is led by former BJP chief minister Suresh Mehta, has accused the state’s chief minister, Vijay Rupani, for misleading the Government of India’s top think-tank, Niti Aayog, by saying that the government has “revived” 32 rivers. In a statement signed by Mehta and two civil rights leaders, Mahesh Pandya and Prof Hemant Shah on behalf of the campaign body, they have said that nothing of the sort has happened.
“The Sujalam Sufalam recharge canal of North Gujarat has not revived any river. The state government website has not even given the names of the rivers that it claims to have revived. There is no water in any of the rivers that connect the canal. Where is the question of reviving the dead rivers?”, the statement says, seeking complete accounts of money spent on the canal network and revive rivers.
