Modi’s leadership exemplary, Gujarat will provide leadership beyond country: Ratan TataSpeaking at Vibrant Gujarat summit’s inaugural function today in Gandhinagar, Tata sons Chairman Shri Ratan Tata said that soon Gujarat will start to provide leadership in terms of the projects and scale not only to country, but beyond that.
Shri Tata said: “Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership has been exemplary”, adding that Modi has not only made mark on this state, but beyond that.
“For Tata Motors Nano project, when we looked for a location where there was security and political stability, Modi promised that he would confirm the allotment of land and other facilities in a few days,” Tata said adding that “now a few days is difficult thing to follow in India because it often doesn’t happen, but in this case the few days became three days.”
Shri Tata said that his group now employs 5000 people in Gujarat, and potentially employing indirectly several more.
He said Mr. Modi is no longer looking at making investment only, but he is now embarking on advancement of rural community, infrastructure, health and wealth or rural people of Gujarat through Mission Mangalam that he has created.
“In this regard, we are going to sign MoU to provide rural transport during the summit,” Shri tata said.

“Our group is going to sign MoU for pilot project for management of waste and suez treatment plant, but the most significant MoU we are signing on the birthday of Vivekananda today is entering MoU with Municipal Corporation to manage 25 primary schools, as Vivekananda said what we will become is decided during the age of 8-12 the primary education is fundamental and therefore we will develop the children in knowledge skills through unique approaches, and we hope that we will be able to bring more Vivekananda and more Mahatma Gandhi and unique Narendra Modi,” Subhash Chandra said.
Shri Subhash Chandra said, “As media person, the way we see Narendra Modi is that he redefined politics, performance and principals.”
“In one of the Indian states one party promised that if they come to power they will distribute free color television, and they won, and the party contesting against Narendra Modi in Gujarat also promised free color TV(and free agri.power), but when media asked Narendra Modi to respond this, he said he would tax the people who are avoiding tax,” Subhash Chandra said in his speech.
