PM Jugnauth set to visit Varanasi

The Mauritius PM will also pay a visit to Varanasi apart from his official engagements in Gujarat and New Delhi. Further talking about the ties between India and Mauritius, the MEA said that India and Mauritius enjoy uniquely close ties, bound by shared history, culture, and heritage and the upcoming visit will further strengthen the vibrant bilateral ties. 

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met with Mauritius’ Secretary to the Cabinet NK Ballah in New Delhi last week, saying that the two countries’ bilateral relationship was “progressing from strength to strength.” 

According to ANI reports, PM Modi and Mauritius PM Jugnauth virtually inaugurated the India-assisted social housing units project in Mauritius earlier this month. They also unveiled the Civil Service College and an 8 MW Solar PV Farm project in Mauritius, both of which are being funded by India.
