Shop where Modi sold tea to be converted into a tourist spot

A small tea stall near Vadnagar railway station in Gujarat is all set to become a tourist spot. This is the same tea stall where Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sold tea as a child.

 

Converting the stall into a tourist spot is part of a larger project of putting Modi's birthplace Vadnagar in Mehsana district of Gujarat on the world tourism map.

 

Officials of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on Sunday visited the town.

 

Ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Modi had often mentioned that he used to sell tea during his childhood at the Vadnagar railway station along with his father.

 

"Inside the Vadnagar railway station, there is a small tea stall, from where our PM had probably started his life's journey.

We also want to develop that tea stall as a tourism spot. Our aim is to put Vadnagar on world tourism map," Union Culture and Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma said.

 

The stall is located on one of the platforms of the Vadnagar Railway station.
