Gadkari in the US

networking for greater benefits

nitin-gadkariMODI Cabinet’s senior minister Nitin Gadkari is walking in his boss Modi’s footsteps now. He was in the US for a week in July; he first reached Washington, where he took part in a conference with prominent think-tank members of America’s infrastructure sector for the Atlantic Council. The same day, he took part in a roundtable conference of the US India Business Council, and then met with Anthony Fox, US Secretary of Transportation. He went to New York on July 13. There he met with investors in meetings organised by Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. After the meeting ended, he walked to Times Square with his NRI friend, where he reportedly shopped a lot and bought sugar-free chocolates for himself. Both of them landed at Indian restaurant, Accent, thereafter; the restaurant is owned by Anand Mahindra and Rohit Khattar and is known in New York for its Indian dishes. Later in the evening, Gadkari had to attend a dinner hosted by the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce. Now Gadkari has to brief Modi on how his US visit has benefitted India.
