Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today described the late former Assembly Speaker Dhirubhai Shah as a man full of life, who lived a life fulfilled.

Unveiling his portrait at a function at Gandhidham, Mr. Modi said that Dhirubhai was one of the rare political leaders who combined values, and who never cared for posts or offices of profit or projecting political heirs. His contributions to the Sindhi community in the Gandhidham-Adipur-Kandla belt in Kutch district will be remembered for long.

Mr. Modi said how Dhirubhai, even after 1,158 days illness, bore a smile of contentment while departing. His death has created a void, comparable to that by late Arvindbhai Maniar, late Vasantbhai Ganjendra Gadkar and late Makarand Desai.

The bereaved family of Dhirubhai Shah donated Rs.1.11-lakh to the Chief Minister's Kanya Kelavni Nidhi, as other industrialists and organizations of Gandhidham donated another Rs.10.20-lakh to the fund.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included Minister of State for Backward Classes Vasanbhai Ahir, Member of Parliament Poonamben Jat, Kutch District Panchayat President Trikambhai Chhanga, legislators Dr Nimaben Acharya and Jayantibhai Bhanushali, Rameshbhai Maheshwari, Dhanjibhai Senghani, Anantbhai Dave and Tarachand Chheda.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard. 

PM will participate in the final day of the G7 Summit tomorrow and will speak in two Sessions.
