Former health minister Jay Narayan Vyas on Tuesday said while Gujarat was progressing industrially, he often faced questions on malnutrition and pollution in the context of development.
Vyas, who is also a former spokesperson of the state government, was speaking on the sidelines of a talk given by noted Canadian author David M Malone, who is an expert on international affairs at Sardar Patel Institute of Economic and Social Research.
"I am also accustomed to questions on malnutrition and pollution despite Gujarat being a state with the highest industrial development. I faced the question of development when I was faced with the prospect of displacing people while heading Sardar Sarovar project. Development means different things for different people and the growth process itself is unequal. Balanced development itself is not possible and many inequalities will be there," Vyas said.
