The town is situated in the Saurashtra region which is facing an acute water scarcity.
"If gates are installed, the water problem of Maharashtra too will be solved. But Congress is not concerned about its own-ruled states as well. They are only worried about nephews, uncles... see how nephews have also jumped into the game," Modi said, in an apparent reference to the current bribery scandal involving the nephew of railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal.
Modi was speaking at Saurashtra Narmada Jal Avtaran Maha yagna near Bhadar dam, organised by Saurashtra Jaldhara Trust.
"I also assured the Prime Minister that gates would not be operated if the Centre wants, but despite it he does not allow us to construct gates," he said.
The chief minister also said the construction of Kalpasar project would start soon as 80% work on feasibility report was complete.
"Once the project is operational, Saurashtra will not have water shortage for the next hundred years," he said.
