Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday arrived in Gujarat for a two-day Gujarat visit. Prime minister will inaugurate certain developmental projects and attend the annual meeting of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group. PM Modi is also scheduled to launch some projects at the Kandla Port and in Bhachau, both in the Kutch district which had witnessed the disastrous earthquake of 2001. As per a Press Trust of India report, the PM is scheduled to address at least two public meetings. “Tomorrow I will begin a two-day Gujarat visit, during which I will join programmes in Kutch and Gandhinagar,” the prime minister had tweeted on Sunday. “I shall inaugurate & lay the foundation stone for various projects of the Kandla Port and address a public meeting at Gandhidham,” Modi said in another tweet.

The prime minister further added that a pumping station would be inaugurated in Bhachau. This is PM Modi’s third visit to the home state in 2017. His last visit came in on April 7. The prime minister visited Botad to inaugurate the phase II of the state government’s ambitious Sauni project. “Kutch has a very special place in my heart. It is blessed with wonderful people and a remarkable spirit of resilience,” said Modi, a former chief minister of Gujarat. “From suffering unimaginable destruction due to the 2001 quake, Kutch is today known as one of India’s fastest growing districts,” he said. Modi was the serving chief minister of Gujarat when the massive earthquake hit the state on January 26, 2001.

Kutch district was worst hit by the quake. “On Tuesday, I will be in Gandhinagar to participate in the opening ceremony of the meetings of the @AfDB_Group,” the prime minister added. “The Annual Meetings of @AfDB_Group have chosen the very relevant theme of ‘Transforming Agriculture for Wealth Creation in Africa’,” he said. On the sidelines, he will meet some of the distinguished delegates of the ADB Group.
