The Prime Minister said on Twitter, “Met CJI Shri Thakur. I thank him for his kind wishes (sic).”

Later at a function, justice Thakur said, “When I met the Prime Minister in the morning for breakfast, (I) told him that coming to Gujarat gave me peace…Once you land here, you feel you have landed in a very very peaceful place. “And who can feel these vibrations and reverberations more than those who hold high offices? Because you know so many things are connected to the office you hold. Therefore, I would say that I am lucky to be here with you this morning, and to share my thoughts with you.”
