President on two-day Gujarat visit”

President Ram Nath Kovind who arrived in Ahmedabad on Sunday afternoon will launch a water project for the parched Saurashtra region on Monday. Kovind's statement came after Gujarat Chief minister Vijay Rupani said that Kovind preferred Gujarat on his first state visit.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday said that the "globally cherished" Gandhian values of truth and non-violence were as much relevant in the contemporary times as in the past.

Chairperson of the trust, Elabehn Bhatt, along with trustees Kartikeya Sarabhai and Amrut Modi accompanied Kovind during his brief tour of the Ashram, which is celebrating 100-years of its establishment. "This is the concept of trusteeship given by Mahatma Gandhi".

On September 4, Kovind will visit Jasdan in Rajkot district where he will address a gathering after attending the foundation stone-laying ceremony for Link-4 of the ambitious SAUNI irrigation project. Addressing a function organised to felicitate Jain monk Acharya Shri Padmasagarsuriji on his 83rd birthday here, Kovind linked the monk's work with Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of trusteeship and urged him to spread the message further for the betterment of the society.

The president also visited "Hriday Kunj", a house inside the Ashram where Gandhiji and his wife Kasturba once lived.
