Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the integrated terminal building of Vadodara Airport in Gujarat . Expressing his happiness on the occasion he said  “I am happy that 2 airports in India have joined the green movement – one in Kochi and now another one in Vadodara,”

Modi embraced the new aviation policy introduced by Gujarat government. "The new aviation policy, released under this Government, looks at the growth of the aviation sector," he said. Mentioning about the chances of growing tourism in the state, PM Modi said that better air connectivity enhances the chances of tourism in Gujarat.

"We have limitless opportunities when it comes to tourism in India. I am sure that Vadodara will contribute to that a lot" he added.

Modi announced the inception of the country’s first Railway University at Vadodara. “India's first Railway University will be in Vadodara, imagine the contribution it is making” PM said.

He also talked plans to bring about new technical innovations in Railways. “Many innovations have happened in the world; Rail is old, but we need to bring new technology to the Railways” he asserted.

Later on he attended a programme to distribute artificial limbs and other implements to more than 8000 'Divyangs' (disabled persons). This is Modi’s first visit to Vadodara after the 2014 parliamentary elections. He was elected to Parliament from Vadodara and Varanasi constituencies in which he kept the latter.

This will be Modi’s fourth visit to Gujarat in last three months where polls are bound next year. He was in Gujarat in last September on his 66th birthday inaugurating various irrigation and drinking water projects in the tribal district of Dahod. With Dalit and Patel communities’ protests still rocking Gujarat, PM Modi’s frequent visits are considered to woo the electorate.
