On the first leg of his visit, the Prime Minister will attend the first ever India-Nordic Summit at Stockholm, which will be co-hosted by India and Sweden. The events that are in discussion in the last two days is shameful.

Modi will be in London on 18 April, where he is also scheduled to make a globally televised address.

"India and Sweden share warm and friendly ties". The letter said, "The bestiality and the barbarity involved in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old child shows the depths of depravity that we have sunk into".

India and Sweden are set to sign a security agreement when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits Stockholm next week, people familiar with the developments said, a move that will facilitate transfer of technology if Swedish defence major Saab is chosen to build fighter jets here.

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 strong words from the Prime Minister also had immediate effect as the two BJP ministers from the state of Jammu and Kashmir resigned.

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

Japan, China agree to mutual official visits by Abe, Xi
Mr Kono, who visited Beijing in January, stressed that the two countries share the same goal on North Korea. Wang said his visit was China's answer to "positive" messages and policies by Japan.

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

He further said, "Under the theme of "Living Bridge", I will also have the opportunity to meet people from various walks of life who have enriched the multi-faceted India-UK relationship".

Paying tributes to Ambedkar on his 127th birth anniversary, Modi said the Dalit icon was highly educated and could have easily led a lavish life in any developed country. The Prime Minister's delay in condemning such elements has added fuel to the fire of negative perceptions being created about him in the UK.

An estimated 2,000 people are expected to have received confirmations to attend the "niche event", since online registrations closed earlier this month. They knew that their behaviour would be endorsed by the politically powerful and those who have made their careers by polarising Hindus and Muslims across a sectarian divide.

Our sense of shame is all the more acute because our younger colleagues who are still in service, especially those working in the districts and are required by law to care for and protect the weak and the vulnerable, also seem to have failed in their duty. In a letter by National Indian Students and Alumni Union, UK, PM Modi was asked "When you did address the issues, you assured the nation that justice will be delivered". Unlike in 2015, when Modi had the advantage of a strongly supportive British Prime Minister in David Cameron, and when problems in the implementation of measures such as GST and demonetisation were yet to take place, this time around there has been much greater resonance to criticism of the PM.
