New Delhi:

"Ferry service is a first of sorts. Its a dream come true for people of Gujarat," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while inaugurating ro-ro ferry service in poll-bound Gujarat's Bhavnagar on Sunday.

He addressed a gathering in Ghogha and undertook a journey to Dahej from Ghogha on the ferry. From Dahej, he will leave for Vadodara, where he is scheduled to inaugurate and lay the foundation stones for projects worth over Rs 1,140 crore.

The prime minister had called the ferry service, which will reduce the distance between the two towns from 310 kilometres by road to 30 kilometres, his “dream project” while addressing a gathering at Gandhinagar on Monday.
