Banaskantha: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has given in-principle approval for the Rs 39 crore ‘Seema Darshan’ project for developing more infrastructure facilities from T-Junction to Zero Point at Nadabet near Suigam in Banaskantha district for border tourism to instill patriotism through a unique Gujarat initiative.

Presiding over the Seema Darshan Review Meeting at Gandhinagar on Tuesday, CM Rupani said that the project being developed on Wagah Border pattern entails an exhibition hall, a parade ground with an amphitheater for 5,000 people. It was decided in the meeting that a proposal on the same will be sent to the Union Home and Tourism Ministries for financial assistance.

Phase-1 of the project was launched on December 24, 2016, at the cost of Rs 22 crore. Nearly one lakh tourists-youth have already participated in watching the border in an atmosphere surcharged with excitement at Seema Darshan. The viewers can watch the border where Gujarat’s seacoast meets the landmass. The project demonstrates BSF jawans’ tryst with protecting the border as round-the-clock sentinels.

The project will encourage local economic activity in the Rann region, alongside the visit to adjoining flamingo and wild ass sanctuaries.
