PM Modi to kick-start Pravasi Bharatiya Divas at Gandhinagar
Sources said about 4000 NRIs from 58 countries will attend the annual fest that brings together members of the Indian diaspora to engage and discuss investing in India.
The Foreign Minister of South Africa Maite Nikoana-Mashabane and President of Guyana Doland Ramotar will also attend the inauguration.
The Pravasi Bharatiya Divas entered its 13th year on Thursday. The occasion has traditionally celebrated Mahatma Gandhi as the original NRI (non-resident Indian).
2015 is also the centenary year of the return of Gandhi to India from South Africa on January 9, 1915 from where he started freedom struggle against the British Empire.
