Speaking at the event, the Prime Minister praised the Shramiks and Vishwakarmas for their contributions to the development of the International Convention and Expo Centre - 'Yashobhoomi. "Today, I dedicate 'Yashobhoomi' to every worker and Vishwakarma in the country," he remarked.

“Our Vishwakarma colleagues are the pride of Make in India and this International Convention Center will become a medium to showcase this pride to the world,” he asserted.

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that Bharat Mandapam and Yashobhoomi will become symbols of India's hospitality, superiority and grandeur. “Both Bharat Mandapam and Yasobhoomi are a confluence of Indian culture and state-of-the-art facilities, and these grand establishments express India’s story before the world”, he maintained.
