Chief Minister Narendra Modi along with Forest Minister, dignitaries and people planted saplings and launched Gujarat's 61st Swarnim Van Mahotsav today at Palitana. Chief Minister appealed people to go back to nature and become tree-lovers.

A Pavak-Van (Purifying Forest) is planned to be developed at Palitana in 17 acres of area with about 9560 trees of 51 different species. Trees will be grown here in different categories like - trees that are associated with the self-realization of Jain Tirthankaras, trees associated with zodiac signs and constellations, trees affecting the parts of human body etc.

Chief Minister said that today when materialistic approach has troubled the humanity with the issues of global warming and climate change, people will have to adopt Indian ethos and relate themselves with various elements of nature. He also honored people giving significant contribution in tree-planting with Vanpandit award.

I will be visiting USA from 22-25 September, 2021 at the invitation of His Excellency President Joe Biden of the United States of America

During my visit, I will review the India-U.S. Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with President Biden and exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest. I am also looking forward to meeting Vice President Kamala Harris to explore opportunities for cooperation between our two nations particularly in the area of science and technology.

I will participate in the first in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit along with President Biden, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan. The Summit provides an opportunity to take stock of the outcomes of our Virtual Summit in March this year and identify priorities for future engagements based on our shared vision for the Indo-Pacific region.

I will also meet Prime Minister Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Suga of Japan to take stock of the strong bilateral relations with their respective countries and continue our useful exchanges on regional and global issues.

I will conclude my visit with an Address at the United Nations General Assembly focusing on the pressing global challenges including the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to combat terrorism, climate change and other important issues.

My visit to the US would be an occasion to strengthen the Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with USA, consolidate relations with our strategic partners – Japan and Australia - and to take forward our collaboration on important global issues.
