  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi leaves on three-nation visit to Palestine, Oman and the UAE

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will make history today by becoming the first Indian premier to visit Palestine.

Another official pointed at the "moral standing" India enjoys in the worldwide community which can be put to good use.

"Well even Jordan and Egypt have full diplomatic relations with Israel so why can't India have", said Ayman, a university student. At the BJP parliamentary party meeting, Modi asked MPs to hold interactive sessions with common people and let them know the budget's provisions, mainly in rural areas where people need to be told about schemes meant for them.

Details of his other engagements in the state were not immediately available. The Indian prime minister would be skipping Israel during his tour of the Middle East in a clear message that New Delhi is de-hyphenating its ties with Israel and Palestine.

The glossy compilation, given to BJP MPs at the parliamentary party meeting, describes Mr Modi as an unbeatable global legend and sheds light on worldwide media reports on his Davos visit for attending the World Economic Forum. Israel has made it clear that it will only work under a US-led peace process.

Modi is on a three-nation tour Jordon, Palestine and UAE starting Friday.

"And in 2016 we laid the foundation stone to establish the Palestine India Techno Park project in Ramallah, and we are also looking forward the establishment of the Institute of Diplomacy that is kindly funded by the Indian Government", he noted.

"The Prime Minister expressed honest thanks for logistical support extended for smooth facilitation for his Palestine visit", Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

He will spend some 20 minutes touring the 15-month-old Yasser Arafat Museum, which chronicles the life of the former Palestinian leader.

On his arrival here, Modi was received by Jordan Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki.

On Saturday, Modi will leave for Palestine where he is scheduled to hold discussions with President Mahmoud Abbas and reaffirm India's support for the Palestinian people and the development of Palestine. "In a gracious and personal gesture, the King invited Prime Minister Modi to his residence for the meeting", he said.

Highly placed sources said the prime minister will visit Surat to flag off the Surat Night Marathon on February 25.
