Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated ‘Garvi Gujarat’, the second state bhawan of the Gujarat government in the national capital.

PM Modi was accompanied by Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and former chief minister Anandiben Patel, who is currently Uttar Pradesh governor, as he inaugurated and walked through the complex built over more than 7,000 sq metres of area at Akbar Road.

The bhawan has been described a mix of traditional and mordern architecture with a rich reflection of the western state’s culture.
