PM pledges support to Lanka’s war on terror”

In Colombo, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday pledged India's solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka as he visited the St Anthony's church, one of the sites of the horrific attacks, and paid tributes to the victims of the deadly terror strikes. During the meeting, the Prime Minister directed all the ministries to focus on steps to improve "Ease of Living".

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe, Colombo archbishop cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, and Minister Sajith Premadasa and the High Commissioner of India to Sri Lanka, Taranjit Singh Sandhu were also present at the occasion.

The Prime Minister's Office described his visit as "important, signifying the strong bonds of friendship with a valued neighbour".

Modi added that all BJP "karyakartas" including himself were servants of the nation and added that even when the party wasn't able to win seats in the municipality elections, they had always raised the slogan of "Bharat Mata ki Jai"."We are not electoral organisms, we are committed to providing safety, security and growth to the people of the country, this goes for every BJP worker across the nation. He said the mandate reflects the will and aspirations of the people to change the status quo, and seek a better life for themselves", a government statement said. The huge expectations of the people should not be viewed as a challenge but as an opportunity.

Speaking of the demographic dividend, the Prime Minister said it is essential that the demographics be utilised efficiently.

During his visit, Modi said he was confident that Sri Lanka will rise again and cowardly acts of terror can not defeat the spirit of Sri Lanka.

Mr. Modi pointed out that each department had a role to play in making India a five-trillion dollar economy.

Modi also touched upon the importance of the "Make in India" initiative and the need to make tangible progress towards this end.

During his short visit Premier Modi also held talks with top Lankan leadership including Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa and Leader of Tami National Alliance Sampanthan and discussed ways to strengthen the bilateral ties reflecting India's "Neighborhood First" policy.

"We have to take the country forward together". Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha, in his opening remarks, spoke of how the PM has interacted directly with all officers up to Director and Deputy Secretary level, in the previous tenure of the government. He urged everyone to hit the ground running, to fulfil the aspirations of the people.
