The British prime minister visited India on Friday with an agenda to enhance Indo-UK ties in the key areas of trade, security, investment and defense. This is her first trip after taking office in July. Ms.May held talks with Narendra Modi. The main objective of her visit was to discuss post-Brexit British relations with India. She also visited Bangalore where she met up with local businessmen and entrepreneurs and also made a visit to the Dynamatic Technologies which has branches in Britain too. She was seen interacting with many children in a school in Bangalore.
Theresa May believes that the world’s oldest democracy and the world’s largest democracy can achieve great things together. She meant collaboration in terms of jobs, skills, developing new technologies and improving culture. The highlight of the India-UK urban Partnership on smart cities and urban development is it will lead to a business of 2 billion pound for the British. This collaboration is also expected to focus on the state of Madhya Pradesh and other cities like Varanasi in India.
Theresa May has offered a deal with India. The deal means more visas for the country’s nationals to come to UK in return for an increase in the number of illegal migrants sent back. Modi has been putting pressure on Mrs.May to make their partnerships more favorable for Indians. In her schedule, she also incorporated temple visits and was accompanied by two priests and went around the Sree Someshwara temple. She was seen sporting a gold and green saree. The priests presented her with garlands, a flower and a piece of silk to offer Lord Siva.
Ms. May also had a fun time in India. She was served a multi-course banquet meal during her work lunch with Modi. She also enjoyed pudding course garnish with gold leaf in the Hyderabad House in New Delhi.
