    Modi Express' bus launched ahead of PM's UK visit

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...s-maiden-visit-to-UK/articleshow/48714895.cms


    NEW DELHI: A 'Modi Express' bus has been launched that will also visit community organizations in the UK with the first stop at 'Little India' at Ealing Road at Wembley and Trafalgar Square to celebrate Diwali in London.

    70,000 people expected to greet PM Modi during his maiden visit to UK

    According to a press release issued by the organizers, Lord Dolar Popat, who broke a coconut to inaugurate the bus journey, said, "This bus launch is yet another example of the UK and India bringing people together for a positive cause. As we look forward to Prime Minister Modi's visit in November, I'm so encouraged to see members from across our communities coming together and supporting one another."

    Keith Vaz, MP, encouraged people to join him on the Modi Express bus from Leicester saying, "Even if you've left your oyster cards at home, be sure to bring your 'Modi cards' to join the Modi Express wherever you are."

    Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, the London borough where Wembley Stadium is situated, said, "I am looking forward to welcoming Prime Minister Modi to Brent. There is huge excitement amongst all communities." The civic leaders who attended and spoke at the event included Navin Shah, member of the London Assembly, Krupa Sheth, the youngest British Indian councillor in the UK, and Krupesh Hirani.

    The bus launch is in tribute to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the UK later this year, during which he is set to attend the biggest community reception for any foreign elected leader on British soil.

    Over 60,000 people will attend the reception, called UKWelcomesModi, and tickets are due to be distributed by Wembley Stadium in coming weeks. People from over 250 cities and towns in the UK have applied for an invitation. They have applied from as far north as Dundee and as far south as Plymouth.

    Nitin Palan, coordinator of the Modi Express bus said, "Our website will be going live next week. You will be able to book Modi Express bus tickets to attend the event from all over the country. "

    There has been overwhelming response to the event that is already oversubscribed. With over 450 community organizations joining the UKWelcomesModi as welcome partners, a large proportion of the 1.5 million Indian diaspora will attend the event. With 10% under the age of 16, the youngest applicant for an invitation has been two months, whilst the eldest is over 100 years old.

    They are probably busy preparing cartoons and slogans about :

    • 2002 riots
    • Azad Kashmir
    • Hindu fundamentalism
    • RSS

    Indian PM will be visiting UK for the first time after their PM has visited India four times without a reciprocal visit from our side. It pretty well demonstrates who is dominant in this relations. Suck on it britshits:fyeah:

    Navtej Sarna named high commissioner to the United Kingdom

    [​IMG]
    Navtej Singh Sarna, an Indian Foreign Service officer of 1980 batch, will be India’s next high commissioner to UK, the external affairs ministry said in a release on Saturday.

    Sarna, an author of many fiction and non-fiction books, is currently serving as secretary (west) in the ministry. He will succeed Ranjan Mathai, a former foreign secretary, as India’s envoy in the UK. “He is expected to take up his assignment shortly,” the release said.

    Sarna was the longest-serving spokesperson of the ministry and its most visible face from 2002 to 2008. He served as India’s ambassador to Israel from 2008 to 2012.

    For two years from August 2012, Sarna served as additional secretary in-charge of international organisations. He was then made secretary (west) in the ministry. He represented India at the officers’ meeting at the India-Africa forum summit that concluded on Thursday.

    Sarna is also well-versed in Russian and Polish languages and has served in various Indian missions, including Moscow, Warsaw, Tehran, Geneva, Thimphu and Washington.

    Defence, economy, energy, climate change to be on PM Narendra Modi’s UK agenda

    http://economictimes.indiatimes.com...ndra-modis-uk-agenda/articleshow/49743830.cms

    NEW DELHI: Notwithstanding negative comments in sections of British media about Indian PM's credibility following loss in Bihar Assembly polls, Narendra Modi's maiden visit to UK from Nov 12-14 as premier is expected to originate key outcome documents in the areas of security and defence, economy, development partnership and energy and climate change to propel bilateral partnership to the next level.

    The PM will use the opportunity to drive home the message that India is a job maker and not job taker in the backdrop of tight immigration laws and investments by TATA which is largest private sector employer in UK. "...You would be interested to know that UK has the largest diplomatic presence in India and is the 3rd largest source of foreign investment in our country. India too is the 3rd largest source of FDI (in terms of the number of projects) in UK. I see immense scope for our economic and trade relations to improve and this will benefit both our economies," the PM said in a pertinent statement ahead of his trip. Modi will visit the Jaguar Land Rover factory at Solihull.

    "There will be a lot of political and security related discussions between the Prime Ministers and also on terrorism and extremism. We expect a statement on defence and security, development partnership and on energy and climate change," Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar told media.

    Modi, once a pariah in UK, will be given a warm welcome with an address to British Parliament (UK made special arrangements though their Parliament is not in session), besides an address for the City of London and lunch with Queen Elizabeth II. Interestingly, when Prime Minister Modi pays homage at the statue of Gandhi near the Parliament, a fly-past with the Indian colours is likely.

    Joint defence production will be a key area of discussion and Modi himself highlighted this. "We have traditionally been cooperating extensively on defence and security issues and this visit will build on strong ties. Defence manufacturing will be a prime focus in my talks." This is first PM level trip to UK in almost a decade. However, David Cameron has been here thrice during his over five-year-term.

    Speaking on other areas of discussions with Cameron during his trip to UK, Modi informed, "There will be deliberations on clean energy and I will seek to achieve progress in our endeavour to make clean energy more affordable and accessible for the 1.25 billion people of India, as also to enhance bilateral cooperation in the fields of science, technology and education. UK remains a preferred choice for Indian students."

    To explore avenues of more effective economic cooperation, Modi will interact with CEOs at a roundtable in London. Making it clear that he is looking for feedback amid criticism of lack of ease of doing business, Modi said, "I always look forward to such discussions because it entails frank dialogue and constructive feedback from investors. My message to the business community is clear - come, make use of the opportunities India is offering and invest in India. "

    UK is home to a 1.5 million-people strong Indian diaspora On November 13, Modi will address Indian diaspora community at Wembley Stadium where a crowd of 60,000 is expected. Jainshankar highlighted this event as the difference between the Chinese President and Indian PM's visits to UK. The PM will also visit the place where Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar lived during his stay in London and unveil a statue of Basaveshwara.
