Later in the day, Prime Minister Modi will have lunch at Gandhinagar Raj Bhawan, which will be followed by the inauguration of the Mahatma Mandir exhibition and conference. He will also address a youth symposium.

Prime Minister Modi will also address a textile summit, take part in a roadshow and unveil other state-centric projects.
