The chief minister on Sunday tweeted about his visit to the National Museum and said that the visit helped him to know about the United States’ glorious freedom struggle.

“America is made up of people from all corners of the globe. It is a matter of pride that people of Indian origin have received prominence here prominently,” he wrote.

Chouhan visited Indian Ambassador Navtej Sarna and also attended an impressive gathering at the Indian Embassy in Washington DC.

“It was a great pleasure meeting ambassador @NavtejSarna,” he tweeted.

“Madhya Pradesh, the heartland of India is making impressive strides in economic development,” the Embassy quoted Chouhan speaking at the ‘New India & MP Opportunities Conference’.

He said the government is focused on Atal Bihar Vajpayee’s dream project of river linking and Madhya Pradesh has a major role in India’s development.

Chouhan will hold one-on-one meetings with Andy Whitman, VP Government Affairs, Varian Medical Systems; Selina Jackson, Kee President, Global Government Relations and Public Policy; and, Debbie Worm, Chief Legal Officer, Procter and Gamble and others on Monday.

He will also visit the Akshardham Temple in New Jersey on his way from Washington DC to New York and the Incubation Center at Columbia University.
