Energy revolution in Gujarat
New Delhi, Dec 17 (PTI) Gujarat is indeed all set to paint the country "saffron", Chief Minister Narendra Modi said here but the Hindutva icon was today referring to his state taking the lead in bringing about an energy revolution.

"The milk (white) revolution began here, the green revolution was from Delhi, and now, we will trigger the energy - saffron- revolution. In this way, the tricolours of Indian flag will be in Gujarat," he said.

The Chief Minister was speaking at a seminar on ''Gujarat-- the hub of excellence for infrastructure and real estate'' organised here by Confederation of Real Estate Developers of India (CREDAI).

Modi said the government''s "modus operandi" when it came to preparing policies was to make a draft and then upload it on the website, invite inputs from industry and common man and then go ahead with a balanced view.

A leading US-based foundation has awarded Gujarat the world''s largest solar plant and 34 solar projects are in the pipeline. The state also houses India''s first tidal energy project and the largest wind energy farm, he pointed out.
