The Make in India week, in the Prime Minister’s own words, “celebrates the achievements of the manufacturing sector and offers insights into the investment opportunities in India.”
The Prime Minister is expected to hold bilateral meetings with senior foreign leaders from different countries during the week.
Also, there were rumblings of discontent from Shiv Sena as Uddhav Thackeray was not invited to any of the inaugural events on Saturday that will be attended by Modi. Officials cited Union government protocol for the development.
As the chief of a political party without any constitutional post, protocol does not allow for Thackeray’s presence, an official said.
