Rabari and Bharwad community members from Adhoi village of Kutch today paid visit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Gandhinagar to thank him for timely rescue of 10 community members who were lost in Little Rann of Kutch last week. The Maldharis were rescued from the Rann area through Air Force helicopters. A group of Maldharis was led by BJP MLA Jayantibhai Bhanushali. BJP leader Arjanbhai Rabari who had extended timely help to the victims was also present. The Chief Minister heard detail narration of what difficulties the victims faced when they were in Rann for hours without any communication or way out. It should be mentioned that those lost in the rann first called the locals through mobile phone. The locals approached Arjanbhai Rabari who contacted district collector. It was timely intervention of Surendranagar and Kutch district collectors that resulted into a decision to call Indian Air Force for rescue. Few jawans of Surendranagar district police also played a major role in locating the maldharis.
