We’ll see brighter India: PM Modi in Tirupati

Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivers a joint press statement at Male in Maldives on 8 June 2019

"India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka", Modi tweeted afterwards, sharing footage from the scene. Ease of doing business and ease of living would be the focus areas of the government, he said, adding that water, fisheries, and animal husbandry, will also be important areas for the government. TNA MPs M.A. Sumanthiran, S.Adaikkalanathan, Mavai Senathiraja and D. Siddarthan were also present on the occasion.

Both sides agreed terrorism was a joint threat that needed collective and focussed action. In 2017, Sri Lanka handed over control of its Hambantota port to China because it couldn't pay back $6 billion in Chinese loans for building the port.

The decision was made during deliberations held between President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the course of the latter's two-day state trip to Maldives.

During the interaction, the Prime Minister recalled his first such interaction with the Secretaries, in June 2014.

The Prime Minister also appealed to the diaspora to contribute to India's development.

He said that the huge expectations of the people should not be viewed as a challenge, but an opportunity for the government to achieve the targets.

Modi visited St. Anthony's Shrine to pay tribute to victims who were among those killed on Easter Sunday by a coordinated terrorist suicide bombing on Christian places of worship.

Taking an indirect dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said some people could not still come out of the election hangover.

"Since both Sri Lanka and India have been victims of terrorism, both the leaders condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and chose to step up cooperation in this critical area", Sri Lanka's presidential office said in a statement.

Two good occasions beckoned the country in the near future, PM Modi pointed out, referring to the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi in October 2019 and the 75th anniversary of the nation's Independence in 2022. He reconfirmed bilateral projects that have, for long, been under consideration, such as offering India the development of a civilian airport in the formerly military airfield, Palali in the Jaffna peninsula as well as upgrading an existing one the eastern coastal town, Batticaloa.
