How many times did India have a PM who despite having a nine days Navratri fast would have a packed first weekend of month working hard for issues concerning infrastructure, justice, technology, and of course, spirituality etc? Yes, you heard it right. Despite observing a punishing fast, consuming only fruit juice & warm water, our 66 years young PM will be working as hard as he usually does.
Today (Saturday), The Prime Minister will be host to the visiting Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak, for bilateral talks at Delhi’s Hyderabad House. Prime Minister Narendra Modi would start his day with a ceremonial reception at 9 am and would accompany his Malaysian counterpart till late evening. The official banquet is expected to start after 6:30 pm which could continue till 8 pm. But his day will not come to an end with the banquet.
Respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi will rest for half an hour after the banquet and then proceed to address India’s sharpest “tech” minds, who are taking part in the final round of the Smart India Hackathon, which will take place over two days from Saturday 8 am to Sunday 8 pm. It will focus on social issues and problems identified by 29 Ministries and Departments of the Union Government. Roughly 10,000 participants have qualified for the final round. The Prime Minister’s address to the participants at 10 pm on Saturday night is expected to last for 30 minutes and will be followed by an interaction with participants across multiple locations.
On Sunday, Modi will be at Allahabad to attend the closing celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Allahabad high court and after that Modi will fly to Udhampur where he will drive through India’s longest tunnel.
Once the function is over, he will fly back to Delhi. Monday will be a routine 12-hour work day for Narendra Modi.
