Commenting on the initiative of acknowledging the top 100 Gujaratis, Patel said, “Gujaratis have a unique style of living. Go in any corner of the world, and you will find that Gujaratis have developed trustworthiness for themselves. Such Gujaratis have made Gujarat prosperous. Today, Gujarat has become a model for various states of the country.”
