MIRZAPUR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron jointly inaugurated the 100 MW solar power plant in Mirzapur district in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi arrived in Varanasi and received President Macron at the Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport here.

For the welcome of the French President, the Ganga Ghat of Varanasi has been decorated with flowers. The operation of the boats in the Ganga Ghat has been completely closed to the public.

The decorations have been made from Assi Ghat to Dashashwamedh Ghat. Cutouts of Prime Minister Modi and President Macron have been installed at the ghats as well.

Both the leaders will attend multiple events in Varanasi. Security has been beefed up in the city for their visit.

In Varanasi, the two leaders will visit the Deen Dayal Hastkala Sankul and will interact with artisans and view a live demonstration of their crafts.

Prime Minister Modi and President Macron will then arrive at the famous Assi Ghat in Varanasi, where they will board a boat for a ride along the Ghats of the Ganga, culminating at the historic Dashashwamedh Ghat.

Assi Ghat is the place where Prime Minister Modi officially began the 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan' campaign in 2014.

The Prime Minister will also host a lunch in honour of President Macron.

In the afternoon, the Prime Minister will flag off a train between Maduadih Railway Station in Varanasi and Patna. He will launch various development projects and address a public meeting at the DLW Grounds in Varanasi.

President Macron arrived in India on Thursday for a four-day visit.

The last visit of President Macron to India was in January 2016, when he was the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations.

Prime Minister Modi had visited France in June last year.
