Nordic Competencies Fit Well With Our Vision For India's Transformation: PM Modi

Women stage protest demanding justice for the victims of Kathua and Unnao rape cases in Kolkata on Wednesday

On the 127th birth anniversary of Bhimrao Ambedkar, Prime Minister on Saturday invoked the Dalit icon multiple times in a speech in the Maoist-hit Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh. "It reflects the importance the UK attaches to the visit and shows the mature level of India-UK ties", said an official involved with the preparations for the visit.

Addressing a huge gathering of villagers in Jangala in the Naxal-heartland of Bijapur in this tribal-dominated region of Chhattisgarh, Modi asked people not to hand over the rights of their children to Naxal leaders who keep themselves safe but allow locals to die.

The bilateral agenda includes renewing a memorandum of understanding that lapsed in 2014 on the framework to return illegal Indians in the UK - British authorities claim that number is in the hundreds of thousands.

The Prime Minister will also address CEO's forum in Stockholm and London besides addressing Indian Diaspora at the two places.

This will be followed by the launch of a new Ayurvedic Centre of Excellence, marked by an MoU between the All India Institute of Ayurveda and College of Medicine in the UK.

He inaugurated the first health centre under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme here.

During the visit, he will hold a bilateral meeting with May on April 18 and also have an audience with Prince Charles.

According to official estimates, India-UK bilateral trade stands at Dollars 13 billion, with the UK among the largest G20 investors into India.

He also asked the human rights organizations and as well as Kashmiris based in UK to largely participate in protest during the upcoming Modi's visit to the kingdom. Within the United Kingdom over the past six years, several gurudwaras have been taken over by pro-Khalistan elements, several of whom regularly visit India while preventing Indian diplomats from entering gurudwaras newly controlled by them.

During the visit he is expected to hold bilateral talks with Britain and heads of other Commonwealth countries.

Keeping the focus on Ambedkar, Modi said, "Babasahab could have lived a life of great comfort".

An estimated 2,000 people are expected to have received confirmations to attend the "niche event", since online registrations closed earlier this month. "All our daughters will definitely get justice" said Modi during the inauguration of Dr Ambedkar National Memorial in the national capital. The government is duty-bound to protect your interests.

In the first FIR, the CBI named Sengar and Shashi Singh, a woman who allegedly took the rape victim to the Bharatiya Janata Party leader's house.

In a statement from Brussels Chairman Kashmir Council EU expressed hope the British Prime Minister Theresa May will put issue of human rights during her meeting with PM Modi.
