Chinese Consul General in India Liu Youfa on Friday called Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi a “political star” who is finding his way to New Delhi for the top job. The diplomat is on a two-day visit to the state.

The Mumbai-based envoy,who attended the annual Gujarat SME Manufacturing Summit on Friday,also said he would get a crew of Delhi-based Chinese news agency to shoot Rani ni Vav at Patan and Sun temple of Modhera in August.

Liu,who took charge in January this year,said he would accompany the crew.

“We don’t have many Chinese tourists here. This could be a good way to get more of them to visit this place. Gujarat is leading in economic growth,the infrastructure is better than most states,” he said. “My mission here is to find local partners to bring in more Chinese investments to Ahmedabad,Bangalore and Mumbai. We are looking at bilateral trade in sectors like pharma,high-end IT manufacturing,textiles,project cooperation in infrastructure,power,roads,port construction,tourism and agriculture,” he said.
