Ahead of Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and India PM Narendra Modi’s visit to Gujarat, the city has geared up with beautification plans.
“The expense will be around Rs 15 crore out of which Rs 10 crore is going to be spent on road repairs and fixing on their route.
The other work includes theme-based lighting, some cultural programmes and tasks related to documentation,” said Pravin Patel standing committee chairman, AMC Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation.
“The duo are going to visit Gandhi Ashram and Sabarmati Riverfront,” added Patel.
“It will be a moment of pride for us as they are going to perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the first bullet train of the country here in Ahmedabad.
There will also be business delegates from Japan for a two-day business summit to be held in the city,” remarked Patel.
