Prime Minister Narendra Modi will start his two-day Gujarat visit from where he would inaugurate some developmental projects and attend the annual meeting of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group. During the visit, the Prime Minister is scheduled to launch projects at the Kandla Port and in Bhachau, both in the Kutch district which had borne the brunt of the 2001 earthquake. The PM will also address at least two public meetings, Press Trust of India reported. “Tomorrow I will begin a two-day Gujarat visit, during which I will join programmes in Kutch and Gandhinagar,” the prime minister tweeted today. “I shall inaugurate & lay the foundation stone for various projects of the Kandla Port and address a public meeting at Gandhidham,” he said in another tweet. He added that a pumping station will be inaugurated in Bhachau.

“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 AfDB Group.
