Modi tells biz men he is building a city on the seashore in Gujarat, where they can start business
Come to Gujarat, I am constructing a city, Dholera, that’s six times the size of Shanghai and two times the size of Delhi,” said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the business community at KC College auditorium yesterday.
Modi, who was chief guest, was speaking at a programme organised by the Indian Merchants’ Chamber (IMC), which saw a considerable gathering of the city’s traders, businessman and others. During the meet, several traders and businessmen informed Modi that they have shut their shops and markets because of the newly imposed local body tax. “Please give us some space in Gujarat, so that we can run our business there and we will make that place like Mumbai,” said a beleaguered member of the crowd.
