Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Japan Thursday night for his second visit to the country after taking charge in 2014. He had twice visited Japan when he was the chief minister of Gujarat. “Reached Japan. Looking forward to fruitful deliberations that will boost economic and cultural ties between India and Japan,” he tweeted. The PM had a brief stopover in Thailand to pay respects to late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, considered one of Asia’s tallest leaders.


The Prime Minister will be meeting his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe for wide-ranging bilateral talks. The two countries are likely to sign the civilian nuclear deal as well.

On Saturday, Modi and Abe will travel from Tokyo to Kobe on Shinkansen. It will give them some “quality time”, sources said, to talk about bilateral and regional issues in a more relaxed setting. Japanese officials recalled that Abe had liked the idea of their travelling together, and had also wanted to showcase one of the commercial hubs in the country. A Japanese government source told the Indian Express the visit to the Kawasaki Heavy Industries facility in Kobe, where high-speed trains are manufactured, has been organised. “A consent was taken from the Prime Minister’s office since he is interested in the project,” a source said.

          Don't create panic. No body will starve to death. Poor hardly get to see the notes of 500 or 1000 in normal days. Poor are hand to mouth and they will start getting new notes for their service and transaction. Sizable number have credit/debit cards. Small people run credit with the provision shops. Even some hardship the move is good

              Modi, it is very disheartening to hear u thump ur chest on the so called "surgical strike" on black money, where is the black money that is already sitting in overseas banks ? Anyways, in case ur DM tell u, our country lost 32 jawans just four days ago, in congo, that should not bother u, since u are busy making sure all ur corporate friends are changing they black to white !!! This country is not a fool, like u would like to think. Now a jawans life dont matter to u !!!! No votes there !!!!

                        That said, Modi did not create these problems. We can't wait until these issues are solved to work on getting investments to grow the economy.

                            Why can't you digest good things? 90% black money is in India only, in that as per my guess around 50% is in hard cash. stani ISI also pumped around 12 Lakh crore fake 500 and 1000 currency to India which is not good for our economy. He will initiate good things with proper plan and facility carry forward is based on respective departments. Congress has damaged our country a lot, repair is very challenging. Wait and see every individuals will feel the heat and work for development of self and our country.
