Ahmedabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi took off this morning in a -plane from the Sabarmati River here to Dharoi Dam in Mehsana district on the last day of campaigning for the Gujarat Assembly polls.

Modi boarded the single-engine -plane from near the Sardar Bridge connecting the old city with Ahmedabad West, the first-ever flight by such a craft in the country.

A special jetty was constructed to facilitate the prime minister’s boarding from the river.

The plane took off from the Sardar Bridge-end amid chants of “Modi-Modi” from BJP workers and other city dwellers, who flocked the Sabarmati Riverfront to witness this one-of-a-kind event.

The plane would land at Dharoi dam reservoir in Mehsana.

From Dharoi, the prime minister would proceed to Ambaji Temple in Banaskantha district via road. After visiting the temple, he would return to Ahmedabad by the -plane in the evening.

Modi had yesterday said at a poll rally that today, for the first in the history of the country, a -plane will land on the Sabarmati river.

“I will go to Ambaji in the -plane after landing in Dharoi dam and come back,” he said.

He said the BJP had planned a road show for today in Ahmedabad.

“However, the administration has not given permission and I had so I decided to go to Ambaji in the -plane,” Modi had said.

“We cannot have airports everywhere, so our government has planned to have these -planes,” he said.

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani yesterday said this is for the first in the country’s history that a sea-plane will land on a water body and that will be the Sabarmati river.
