"A visit with a rich bilateral & multilateral content in the form of meetings with other leaders & participation at two multilateral meetings (India-Nordic & Commonwealth Summits)", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

There is a huge uproar over the cases and other issues among the Indian diaspora and South Asia community in the United Kingdom, who are planning a huge protest on 18 April outside Downing Street, London, reports said.

PM Modi's royal welcome will include a special event hosted by Prince Charles, during which the heir to the British throne will drive up in a Tata Motors' first-ever electric Jaguar to symbolise the India-UK technical collaboration.

In both cases, Prime Minister, it is your party which is in power.

Mariah Carey's Former Manager Suing For Sexual Harassment
Mariah's publicist previously denied that Stella's dismissal had anything to do with creative director and boyfriend Brian Tanaka. According to the preliminary legal docs, the suit involves a huge amount of money Stolper claims Mimi didn't pay her.

Also on the cards is the launch of an Ayurvedic Centre of Excellence at the University of Westminster, for which an MoU will be signed between the All India Institute of Ayurveda and College of Medicine, an MoU between NASSCOM and Innovate UK, and another MoU between NITI Aayog and its counterpart in the UK in the area of innovation. The Swedish prime minister's gesture is reminiscent of Narendra Modi's own gesture of greeting state guests personally at the airport, who he feels are special friends of India. He seems to have failed to learn the lesson of his predecessors who did not forcefully respond to protests in late 2012 and early 2013 after a young woman was raped and killed on a public bus in New Delhi.

Under the theme of "Living Bridge", he will also have the opportunity to meet people from various walks of life who have enriched the multi-faceted India-UK relationship. This time, the PM's tour will last five days and he will visit three European countries - Sweden, United Kingdom and Germany. "On April 18, the PM will be in London on the invitation of Prime Minister Theresa May, a visit that presents another opportunity for both countries to infuse fresh momentum to this growing bilateral engagement". Nordic competencies fit well with the vision for India's transformation.

According to the Ministry of External Affairs, PM Modi would meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel during his brief stopover in Berlin on April 20.

"The Commonwealth is a unique multilateral grouping that not only provides useful assistance to its developing country members, particularly the small states and small-island developing states, but also has a strong global voice for development issues", Modi had said.
