Prime Minister Narendra Modi will wrap up his two-day visit to his home state of Gujarat. On Saturday, Modi launched a number of projects and symbolically sounded the Bharatiya Janata Party's poll bugle for Gujarat, which goes to the polls later this year.
He began his trip with a focus on the revision brought to the Goods and Services Tax regime by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. "Today, everywhere it is being said that Diwali has come 15 days ahead due to the decisions taken in the GST Council (on Friday). I am happy," Modi said.
Today, the prime minister will first visit Vadnagar, his birthplace, where he is scheduled to inaugurate a medical college and hold a public meeting. He will later be in Bharuch, where he will flag off an express train to Bihar and hold another public meeting.
