Jamnagar (Gujarat) [India]: Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel on Saturday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s contribution to the development of the country.
He added that the PM’s US tour has benefited Gujarat the most, as an MoU was signed between the Gujarat Government and the American company Micron Technology for semiconductors. “During the nine years of PM Modi’s government, the country has significantly progressed in all sectors.
From his (PM’s) US tour, Gujarat has the maximum benefit, as we signed an MOU with American company Micron Technology for semiconductors. Hopefully, we will organise a foundation stone laying ceremony,” Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel.
