Last week, British MPs invited Modi to the House of Commons to speak on the future of modern India.

“India has been on the top in Australia’s foreign policy owing to smooth relations and parallels between both the countries. Developing relations with Gujarat has been top priority for the last 10 years,” the Gujarat government release quoting Suckling stated.

Modi praised the Australian government’s interests in Gujarat. In the last three Vibrant Gujarat summits, Australia had sent delegations. He also invited Suckling to attend the Vibrant Gujarat Global Agro Tech Summit and Exhibition in September and the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors’ Summit in 2015.

SGPC is for all India, Modi govt is with us: Badal

For long locked in intractable legal disputes over sharing of river waters and territorial claims, Punjab and Haryana are now sparring on politico-religious turf. And, the slugfest is only getting vicious and complicated by the day, raising the fears of religious frenzy that consumed Punjab in the dark 1980s. Vehemently opposed to Haryana’s move to set up a separate gurdwara panel, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal believes that the Amritsar-based SGPC’s supremacy must be maintained at all costs. He is even ready to step down as CM, if required, to scuttle the Congress’ ‘poll-oriented’ step. On the other hand, Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda vociferously defends the passing of a law by the state assembly to form a separate gurdwara management committee. He sees no impropriety at all.
