Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday morning inaugurated the Seema Darshan Project at Nadabet in the border district of Banaskantha in Gujarat.

The facilities that have come up at a cost of Rs 125 crore will enable people to see a parade like the one at the Wagah-Atari border.

Speaking on the occasion, Shah expressed gratitude towards the BSF jawans, who have been protecting the borders, and said that it is because of their efforts that India is safe and progressing.

The minister asked the government to promote the facility and said that in 10 years, it will give employment to 5 lakh people.

Among the facilities include a parade ground that has a capacity of 5,000, a gallery showcasing the history and work of BSF, souvenir shop, restaurants, BSF barracks, activity areas for children and a light facility powered by solar panels.

One of the highlights of the place is the Indian tricolour hoisted at a height of 40 feet. On display are also artillery guns, battle tanks and aircraft.

Exhorting officials to ensure that more young children visit the place, Shah said that the facilities will inculcate the spirit of patriotism among them.

Shah is to attend a series of programmes during the day.
