India and Sweden will sign a general security agreement, which is a precondition for Sweden to share sensitive technology with India if, for instance, Swedish company Saab is chosen to build fighter jets in India.

Prime Minister Modi, who arrives in the United Kingdom from Sweden on Tuesday night, is also among only three senior world leaders attending CHOGM to be invited for an audience with Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday evening, they said.

The Prime Minister will fly to Sweden's capital Stockholm on Monday morning, around 9 am.

Mr Modi said, his visit to London presents another opportunity for both countries to infuse fresh momentum to this growing bilateral engagement. It will be only the second time that all five Nordic countries will have a summit with one country, the only other time was with the USA during Barack Obama's term.

Gandhi's tweet came soon after Modi said at an event in Delhi he wants to "assure the nation that no criminal will be spared" and justice will be delivered to its daughters, a statement seen as a reference to the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl in UP's Unnao and of an 8-year-old girl in J&K's Kathua.


The lady was one of the thousands of women covered under the scheme launched more than a decade earlier to provide slippers to people engaged in collecting Tendu leaves in Chhattisgarh. During his two-day visit to the state, PM Modi is also expected to meet the residents of Naxal-hit Bastar district.

On the first leg of his visit, the Prime Minister will visit Sweden where he will attend the first ever India-Nordic Summit at Stockholm. He also asked the human rights organizations and as well as Kashmiris based in UK to largely participate in protest during the upcoming Modi's visit to the kingdom. The information was later confirmed by the External Affairs Ministry. The centre is aimed at creating a first-of-its-kind global network involving Indian and British academics and medical professionals to coordinate on evidence-based research on yoga and Ayurveda.

According to official estimates, India-UK bilateral trade stands at United States dollars 13 billion, with the UK among the largest G20 investors into India. The India-UK CEOs Forum will also take place during this visit.

The Congress leader said the BJP can inaugurate as many memorials as they like, "but the fact is that they are reducing sub-plans, financial allocations".

In both cases, Prime Minister, it is your party which is in power.
