Palestine to ask India to replace US as sole mediator in…

Mahmoud Abbas Narendra Modi

The Indian premier and the PA chairman signed agreements for an Indian government investment of $41 million in the establishment of a multi-purpose hospital in Beit Sahour, east of Bethlehem; three schools in Jenin, Tubas, and Abu Dis; a modern printing press in Ramallah; and a heritage center to empower women. Last month Modi hosted Benjamin Netanyahu on a week-long visit to India, where the prime minister pitched Israeli prowess in security and technology and sought to revive a half-billion dollar missile deal.

In his keynote address at the World Government Summit in Dubai, he said the government's e-market programme of GEM has witnessed transactions worth Rs 4,500 crores in a very short span of time.

PM Modi's Sunday will begin with a grand community event at the Dubai Opera House.

While a few poeple on social media has commeded Modi for laying the foundation stone of the temple, he has also learned some criticism for it.

"The occasion is going to be historic... because it will also see the commencement of the first Hindu Temple in Abu Dhabi".

This is Modi's second visit to UAE since he became the Prime Minister.

While the UAE already has two Hindu temples in Dubai, a spokesperson from Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) said the temple in Abu Dhabi will be the first traditional Hindu stone temple in the Middle East. BAPS manages nearly 1,200 temples in India, UK, the US, Australia, Canada and Africa. Israel has said it will only work with a US-led peace process.

"We took decisions for long-term gains, not immediate results", he said, adding, "When we make a change in 70-year-old norms, it is obvious that there would be some issues". Speaking on the occasion, Mr Modi said, the temple is a unique symbol of religious tolerance and the Indian principle of Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam- one world one family. "It's going to be tradition meeting technology", Suri said.

Temple Committee members had presented the temple literature to Modi and Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan Saturday evening in Abu Dhabi. While his transit from Jordan to Palestine, PM Modi was chauffered in Royal Jordanian helecopters which were accompanied by Israel choppers as well.

Temple artisans from India will be hand-carving the stones and assembling them in the UAE.

During his two-day visit, Modi will also meet Deputy Prime Minister for the Council of Ministers Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said and Deputy Prime Minister for International Relations and Cooperation Affairs Sayyid Asa'ad bin Tariq Al Said.
