Modi, who turned 67 today, unveiled the plaque dedicating the dam to the nation, after performing a puja at the site in the Narmada district.
The dam's construction began in 1987, although the project dates back to 1961 when Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, laid down the first stone for the foundation.
According to the SSP official, the power generated from the dam would be shared among three states - Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
It said the "so-called development project" comes at an immeasurable cost when considered in terms of the dislocation and debasement caused to countless men, women and children, their hearths and homes, besides the destruction of forests, biodiversity and ecosystems.
"As you know that it's not in my nature to think or do anything on a small scale.That is why we had made a decision to build this 182 metre tall statue".
In his address to a gathering of farmers and villagers from different districts of the State, Modi recalled that when the World Bank denied funds for the project, religious leaders and temples came forward to fund it. "Imagine his vision that he envisioned this dam to help farmers and citizens", Modi said while adding that even as the project faced several hurdles, his government was determined to continue with the project, ANI said. In this context, Modi said he would live for people's dreams and would die for their dreams.
