Want to develop Gujarat as global tourism hub: Chief Minister

The Gujarat government wants to develop the state as a global tourism hub by presenting its “culture and heritage in new forms and colours”, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel said at the ongoing Madhavpur Mela, the religio-cultural fair going on in Porbandar, reports The Indian Express.

Addressing a gathering at the Madhavpur Mela on the fourth day of the fair, Patel said that fairs such as these reflect the colourful regional diversity of Gujarat’s cultural life as well as promote social unity and harmony.

The Chief Minister said that the state government wants to project this diverse cultural heritage on the global stage. “Our government wants to make Gujarat a global hub of tourism. To achieve this, we have adopted the policy of doing well-planned development of religious places, renovation of ancient and heritage places and reinventing fairs like this one,” Patel said. “Inspired by Narendra Modi, we have chosen the path of presenting Gujarat’s festivals and functions in forms and colours,” he added.
