Ahmedabad: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited JCB factory along with Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel.  There the British PM jumps on the JCB’s Bulldozer at the new factory and waved to the media.

Earlier he had visited Sabarmati Ashram where he was seen trying his hand at the renowned charkha, or spinning wheel. He also left a message in the visitor’s book, saying, “It is an immense privilege to come to the Ashram of this extraordinary man, and to understand how he mobilised such simple principles of truth and non-violence to change the world for the better.”

He visited business tycoon Gautam Adani, who tweeted: “Honoured to host Boris Johnson, the first UK PM to visit Gujarat, at Adani HQ. Delighted to support climate & sustainability agenda with focus on renewables, green H2 & new energy. Will also work with UK companies to co-create defence & aerospace technologies. #AtmanirbharBharat.”

Johnson arrived in Ahmedabad on Thursday morning to begin his visit to India, and was greeted warmly along the four-kilometer walk from the airport to a city hotel.

Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and Governor Acharya Devvrat greeted Johnson at the Ahmedabad airport.

Senior state officials along with other ministers were also present to receive him.

As his convoy approached the hotel, troupes performing traditional Gujarati dances and music met the British Prime Minister at the airport and along the road.

The roadshow began outside the airport and proceeded down Ashram Road, via Dafnala, and to the Riverfront.

On the four-kilometer route from the Airport Circle to the five-star hotel on Ashram Road, as many as 40 platforms were erected at regular intervals, with troupes performing traditional Indian dances to welcome Johnson.

The British Prime Minister will also visit to the under-construction Gujarat Biotechnology University in Gandhinagar, which is being built in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, according to a Gujarat government announcement.
