Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel on Sunday inaugurated the week-long International Kite Festival, which draws participants from 55 countries and various states of India. Speaking at the event, Patel said India’s economy is reaching new heights with the development of industries and businesses due to the progressive ideology and visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
