On the morning of 21st May, Shri Narendra Modi addressed a special assembly session in the Gujarat State Legislative Assembly, before tendering his resignation from the post of Gujarat Chief Minister. Shri Modi, who was appointed as the Prime Minister of India a day prior, will also resign as a member of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly.

Speaking on the occasion, which also witnessed a farewell for him by the Assembly members, Shri Modi affirmed of how for him MLAs had always been the most important since they reflected the people’s voice. Encouraging his team of MLAs to continue performing excellently, Shri Modi said that Gujarat’s rapid and unstopped development, even in his absence, would be his true success and the hallmark of the State’s success story. He further affirmed that he had complete faith in his team for this.

Calling for the need to institutionalize ideas within the institutional framework, Shri Modi asserted that this would ensure speedy development for the Nation.

He also stated that despite him not speaking much in the past Assembly sessions of the State, he was glad that he could listen to every member and address their concerns. “I may not have spoken much in the House but I made it a point to hear each and every member also on the opposition,” said Shri Modi.

Speaking on the occasion, Gujarat Assembly speaker Shri Vajubhai Vala expressed keenness on the replication of the Gujarat model across the Nation, and affirmed of complete support from Gujarat towards this.

Recalling the political fervour during early days, Leader of Opposition Shri Shankersinh Vaghela commended Shri Modi’s resolute spirit to live for the country and single-mindedly work for its progress. He spoke of how the BJP’s magnificent rise from being a party with merely 2 seats in 1984 to emerging as the single party with 284 seats in 2014, was predominantly due to Shri Modi’s promising efforts for the people and the Nation.

Finance Minister Shri Nitin Patel spoke of the revolutionary initiatives taken by Shri Modi for the development of the state and the welfare of its people, and also stated of how the Nation was keenly looking forward to imbibing the innovative and effective initiatives of Shri Modi.

Revenue Minister Smt. Anandiben Patel applauded the decision-making ability and foresightedness of Shri Modi and spoke of how, previously defunct sectors like textiles, got a revival and other fledgling sectors got a major boost, under Shri Modi’s able leadership.

Shri Amit Shah said that under the BJP’s rule, and under the stellar leadership of Shri Modi, development has reached every corner of the society. With special emphasis on villages, agriculture, education and health, and due importance given to the development of the tribal community and the Dalits, the State had emerged as a model state, with a good law and order scenario that ensured the safety and security of every citizen. He also stated that under the Prime Ministership of Shri Modi, the Nation’s Federal structure will get a new dimension with his concept of Team India, and the country will reach the pedestal of Vishwa Guru.

Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama recalled Shri Modi’s steadfast determination to serve the society during his early days as an organisation worker and conveyed good wishes so that he may successfully replicate Gujarat’s success story for India too.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
