Mumbai: Devendra Fadnavis, Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra unveiled a statue of Maratha warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Mauritius on Saturday, April 29.
It was his first visit to Mauritius. In a meeting hosted by the Mauritius India Business Community, Fadnavis also got to know representatives of Mauritius-based businesses.
"India lives in the states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji always says. He continuously pushes for more communication between governments and other nations. He thinks that these relationships will be more beneficial, and I believe that is what has brought me here. In this professional setting, we are discussing not only our past interactions but also our shared future, according to Fadnavis.
"We are aware that India is holding the G20 presidency under PM Modi's direction, and that the G20's symbol and motto are 'one earth, one family, one destiny'... And I can see how these ideals are put into practise when I visit Mauritius because, when I connect with the locals, I feel like I've come home, according to Fadnavis. He expressed his admiration for Mauritius' development and the infrastructure it had built. He will also attend an event with Mauritian Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth to sign agreements in the tourism Industry.
Fadnavis and Jugnauth attended a cultural event hosted by the Maharashtrian community in Mauritius. The Deputy Chief Minister will meet with representatives of the Maharashtrian community and the President of Mauritius on Sunday, April 30.
