Giving an example of the pro-activeness of the State Government, Shri Modi stated, “No sooner did the elections get over than we began preparing for the 2013 Vibrant Gujarat Summit.

He shared that Saputara has become the apple of Gujarat’s eye and that it is said, ‘Gujarat Ki Aankhon Ka Taara, Saputara.’ Shri Modi shared that tourism helps the poorest of the poor and many people can earn their livelihood if tourism is given an impetus.
