Modi to open Gandhi museum in Rajkot

Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be visiting Gujarat on Sunday to inaugurate multiple projects, including a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi at the Alfred high School in Rajkot, and a modern chocolate factory set up by Amul in Anand. Mr. Modi would also inaugurate a gas pipeline project in Kutch and an LNG terminal built by the Gujarat government-promoted Gujarat State Petronet Ltd (GSPL). In Rajkot, the museum had been set up by the State government at the school from where Gandhiji passed his matriculation in 1887. Renamed Mohandas Gandhi High School after Independence, the school was closed in 2017 after authorities decided to convert it into a museum. The chocolate plant in Anand district has been set up by Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, which markets dairy products under the brand name ‘Amul’. The plant has been built with investment of Rs. 190 crore and has a capacity to produce 1,000 tonnes of chocolates of different flavours.
Mr. Modi would address a gathering of farmers after inaugurating the Amul plant.
