Hi Respected Kalpana ji

Hon Anil Kumar Bachoo is not the Prime Minister of Mauritius, but the Minister of Public Infrastructure, Shipping and Land Transport. The other one with the suit is Hon Mukeshwar Choonee, Minister of Arts and Culture. Our Prime Minister is Hon Dr Navin Ramgoolam, FRCS (UK), LLB (UK) whose paternal grandfather(dada) came as a labourer to Mauritius from Bihar in the 1870's.
