Prime Minister Narendra Modi told French President Francois Hollande Sunday that India would “stand shoulder to shoulder” with France in the battle against terrorism.

Modi praised France’s response to the terror attacks in Paris in November 2015, saying he had decided that very day to invite Hollande to India.

“France has shown the way to combat terrorism without deviating from its principles and journey of progress,” Modi said, adding that the country deserves credit for going ahead with the COP21 conference during what was a difficult period for it.

Modi was speaking at the specially organised India-France business Summit here in the first leg of the French President’s India visit.

Hollande said issues of security affected both the countries and they would share efforts to combat terrorism.

With defence and security ties being a core issue during the visit, the French president also said that France was interested in making available military equipment to India. He also made a pitch for stronger civil-nuclear military deal between India and France.

The PM, who was accompanied by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, said defence issues are no longer about weapons alone and that cyber security is also a threat to be seriously contended with.

    About 200 million Dalits will be voting against the BJP and the selfie-hunting joker at the next Lok Sabha elections in 2019. BJP was super lucky to receive 31% votes at the last Lok Sabha elections. At the next Lok Sabha election, BJP cannot get more than about 15% of the votes. No Muslim votes. No Dalit votes. No South India votes. No Delhi votes. No Bihar votes. And believe it or not, hardly any Gujarat votes! So get ready for Mr Nitish Kumar to be the next PM.

      France will send the soldiers, and the selfie-chaser will send the Gujju babus from the PMO. That is joint operation.

          Good. This you will achieve by dancing with Nawaz Sharif. Such statements have been made by different leaders of your party time and again. You have found a soft killing field all over India and repeating what you made in Godhra. You have now seen Delhi and Bihar much more are in line.
