People protest against displacement by the Sardar Sarovar Dam project

The Congress on its part alleged that while the dam project would have been complete, the benefits would not accrue to farmers in the state due to non-availability of sub-canals in sufficient numbers.

The height of the dam was recently raised to 138.68 metres, which will allow maximum "usable storage" of 4.73 million acre-feet of water. About 57 percent of the electricity produced from the dam goes to Maharashtra, while Madhya Pradesh gets 27 per cent and Gujarat gets 16 per cent.

Bharatiya Janata Party will look to use this opportunity to grow its vote bank in the run-up to the assembly elections in Gujarat. Ahead of Modi's visit, the state will organise Narmada Mahotsav Yatra from 6-15 September.
