Gujarat's Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi will perform the ground-breaking ceremony of the Mahatma Mandir here on Monday, June 7, 2010 at 10.30 a.m.

The majestic memorial to Mahatma Gandhi is being built by 'kar sevaks' with symbolic samples of soil and water brought in 50,000 pitchers from 26 nations, all the states in India, from all the 159 towns and 18,000 villages in Gujarat. The project has been undertaken as part of the state's golden jubilee celebration.

A 'time capsule' chronicling the march of the state since its foundation on May 1, 1960 will be lowered into the ground under the site of the Mahatma Mandir. The box, christened 'Kaal Sanduk' of 'Smriti Manjusha' is made of special gauge stainless steel after given proper treatment. The scripts too are written on a special paper mixed with plastic to last a long time.

It will contain audio-visual compact discs prepared by the Government of Gujarat, besides Ravishankar Maharaj's word-by-word speech delivered at the time of Gujarat's Foundation Day on May 1, 1960, the concept of the Mahatma Mandir and the opinion of 'kar sevaks' participating in the construction of Mahatma Mandir.

The time capsule will also carry the resolution passed by Gujarat's present and past Chief Ministers, MPs and MLAs at the unique parliamentary conclave, named 'Swarnim Gujarat Sanasadiya Parishad' held at the State Assembly on January 1, 2010.

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.
