After inaugurating the ro-ro, Modi will address public in Ghogna and then he will undertake a journey to Dahej on the ferry. But the Central Government at that time (UPA) forced the state government to announce that they don't need the help of Gujarat government for the reconstruction of the Kedarnath Temple.

The forex reserves of the nation has gone up from $30,000 crore to $40,000 crore despite bold initiatives, it indicates the economy is on the right track, Modi said in context of his Government's two initiatives - demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The Ro-Ro ferry service is the first of its kind in India and is capable of carrying up to 100 vehicles (cars, buses and trucks) and 250 passengers between Ghogha and Dahej ports. We came to power in Gujarat and changed the policies to encourage private investments in the ferry services. The PM added that the inauguration of ferry service is to bring back to life our glorious past.

Modi also stated that once successful, similar ferry services will be carried out to connect other coastal towns of Hazira in Surat, Pipavav, Jafrabad, Daman & Diu besides connecting with Mumbai. The 31-km ferry service will cut travel time from almost eight hours to just about one hour. He said that his government was committed to executing projects stalled for decades.
