New Delhi: The picturesque historical seaside town of Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu will be the cynosure of all eyes as Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping at the UNESCO world heritage site for the second bilateral informal summit on October 11-12.

This is not the first time that Modi is hosting a foreign leader outside the national capital, which earlier used to be the norm. Modi has always maintained that the other states should get their due in showcasing to the world their beauty and culture. He has in the true sense opened the doors of ‘Incredible India’ to the world.

In the last five years, besides the transformational shift in diplomacy that he has brought about, visiting dignitaries have been given a first hand experience of the diverse Indian hospitality in different parts of the country, that has helped promote Indian culture, heritage and diversity at the world stage.

From cutting-edge technology to ancient Indian heritage, from spirituality to architecture, India’s guests have witnessed the vibrant culture of India. In the process, the foreign dignitaries have visited various Indian states across the country while giving the states an opportunity to highlight their traditions to the world.

In the recent past, Modi hosted Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe and his wife in Ahmedabad, where they visited the Sabarmati Ashram and Sidi Sayyed Mosque. During the last visit of Xi, he was also welcomed in Ahmedabad, where they visited the Sabarmati riverfront.

French President Emmanuel Macron visited Varanasi and Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh with Modi, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was hosted in Bengaluru’s Bosch Research Centre while Israeli Premier Bejamin Netanyahu was also hosted in Ahmedabad.

Modi hosted former French President Francois Hollande in Chandigarh, where they visited the Rock Garden, former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at Akshardham Temple in Delhi, South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Noida while US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump was hosted in Hyderabad for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.

Similarly, during his India visit, German President Frank Walter visited Varanasi, Sarnath and Chennai while Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat and Mumbai.

The First Lady of South Korea was a special invitee to witness Diwali celebrations in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya, rekindling the centuries-old connect between both countries. The Prime Minister of Mauritius was welcomed in Varanasi for the Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas programme.

Farmers’ Income Has Halved, That Of Govt’s Friends Risen: Rahul Takes Dig At Centre

Congress leader seeks scrapping of the three ‘black’ farm laws, asks Centre not to befool farmers with rhetoric.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked the Centre over its claim of doubling farmers’ income and alleged that their income has in fact “halved” under the “suit-boot” government, while that of its crony friends has grown four times.

He also demanded that the government abolishes the three “black” farm laws which are against farmers and farm labourers and asked it not to befool them with rhetoric.

No immediate response was available from the government.

Gandhi’s remarks come at a time when farmers from Punjab and Haryana are protesting at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders of the national capital against the Centre’s new agriculture reform laws.

“They (government) said farmers’ income will be doubled. What they did was increase the income of (their) ‘friends’ four times and halved that of farmers. This is a government of suit-boot, lies and loot,” the Congress leader said in a tweet in Hindi.

Gandhi also shared a video showing police using water cannons and firing tear gas shells during protests by farmers with a speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi playing in the background wherein he says his government is taking steps to resolve the problems faced by farmers and double their income.

“Modi government, stop giving ‘jumlas’ (rhetoric) to farmers, stop the dishonesty and atrocities, stop giving them the falsehood of talks, (and) abolish all three black laws which are against farmers and labourers,” Gandhi said in another tweet.

The Congress has been attacking the government over the use of force against the protesting farmers, and urged the dispensation to withdraw the new farm laws and redress the grievances of the protesters.

Farmer unions say the three new laws will lead to the dismantling of the minimum support price (MSP) system, leaving farmers at the mercy of corporate houses.

But the government says the MSP system will continue and the new laws will give farmers more options to sell their crop.

Farm leaders met Union ministers on Tuesday, but the two sides failed to break the deadlock. The next round of talks is scheduled to be.

Taking to Twitter, Manish Tewari said, “Farmers have besieged Delhi, Economy is officially in recession, Chinese continues to encroach upon over 1000 square kilometres of our land, COVID cases are at 95 lakhs with 1.38 lakhs dead in 8 months. GOVT NEEDS TO CONVENE THE WINTER SESSION OF PARLIAMENT ASAP WITHOUT DELAY.”

Sources in the government stated that currently, deliberations are on the decision to not hold the winter session.

Whether to club the winter session and budget session or to just to hold the budget session directly next year is also under consideration, sources added.

Farmers From Punjab, Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been agitating against the recently passed farm laws at the borders of the national capital with the ‘Dilli Chalo’ protest march.

In light of this, Union Minister of Agriculture Narendra Singh Tomar held a meeting with representatives of Farmer’s Organisations on Tuesday. Talks, however, remained inconclusive.

The Congress leader, who is also a member of the Parliament Committee on Defence has raised the issue of Chinese Encroachment on Indian Land up to 1000 kilometers.
