Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in the national capital on Wednesday morning, after completing his three-nation tour of Portugal, United States and Netherlands. He was received by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Modi’s three-nation tour began on Saturday, when he met his Portuguese counterpart Antonio Costa and signed 11 MoUs in areas including double taxation avoidance, investments, science and technology, and culture. Addressing a joint press conference, Modi said in Portugal that the two sides have agreed to establish a joint science and technology fund worth four million euros.

Modi also interacted with the Indian diaspora as well as top US CEOs  inviting them to invest in India. The Prime Minister also invited Trump’s daughter Ivanka to lead the US delegation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held in Delhi later this year.

Following his US visit, Modi arrived in Netherlands on Tuesday and held talks with Prime Minister Rutte on the relation between two countries. Modi said, “Strong ties between our nations are beneficial for the world.”  He also interacted with Dutch CEOs and invited them to invest in India. He also met with  King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.

      Modi and the BJP has the burden of providing dole to the millions of Muslims and the converted Dalit Christians who rely on the handouts. These freebies/dole/handouts cost millions of crore rupees. Today, the Muslims and the Dalit christians have become lazy bums and have lost incentive to work.
