Bhopal/New Delhi, May 15 (Agencies): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Monday pay a one-day visit to Madhya Pradesh to attend the concluding ceremony of the 'Namami Devi Narmada Sewa Yatra' in Anooppur district.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will receive the PM at the Dumna airport in Jabalpur.

Modi will take a chopper ride from Jabalpur in the afternoon to reach Amarkantak to participate in the event, which will mark the end of the Madhya Pradesh government's pet project.

"Narmada Seva Yatra is an excellent mass movement to protect the Narmada & conveys a larger message of saving the environment as well".

He said he will launch the 'Narmada Seva Mission' which will have a major impact on Madhya Pradesh`s ecology.

"The Prime Minister will release a roadmap for the conservation of Narmada, the lifeline of Madhya Pradesh, at Amarkantak," Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said yesterday.

"The roadmap has been prepared after wide-ranging consultations with various stakeholders, including environmentalists, river conservation experts and people directly associated with the Narmada," he said.

The Yatra had started from Amarkantak on December 11, 2016, and is concluding there after covering a distance of 3,344 km and passing through over 1,100 villages and towns.

Narmada flows 1,312 km before draining through the Gulf of Khambhat into the Arabian Sea.

Narmada, also known as Rewa, is one of only three major rivers in the country that flows from east to west. The other two are Tapti and Mahi.
