Delegates from 60 countries
Some 35 business jets and choppers ferrying the country's top industrialists and political leaders have descended at Ahmedabad for the Vibrant Gujarat two-day biennial conclave that started on Wednesday.
Such was the rush at the roads leading from the airport to the city that a run that takes some 15-20 minutes to mid-town Ahmedabad took around an hour. But with no jams as such, few were complaining, since the flow was smooth with police personnel well-equipped to handle the situation.
Airport authorities said Wednesday morning that they were also ready for some last-minute landing of private aircrafts - a few of them from overseas. Delegates have also been pouring in from some 60 countries, including Japan, the US, Canada, Australia and even Rwanda and Mozambique.
