Talking to the media, Sitharaman said, "Congress party which was in the centre earlier and in opposition here in Gujarat, never thought of or worked for the state. They did not do anything for river Narmada."

"Development of river Narmada was done only when Congress was not in the power, during the govt of Morarji Desai, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now Narendra Modi," she was quoted by ANI as saying.

Soon after her arrival in Ahmedabad, Sitharaman told that the government is trying its best to bring Kulbhushan Jadhav to India.

"We are trying our best that he be released and brought to India. So if his wife is meeting him before that, it will help him stay strong," she further added.
