As a part of the Green Ride initiative, he is also scheduled to visit the Statue of Unity on December 17, 2023, where he along with other dignitaries will be inaugurating the adventure sports at Statue of Unity. Milind, actively associated with the Lifelong campaign, encourages individuals to “Fight Lazy” and strive towards their fittest selves.
