Modi witnesses temple foundation stone laying in UAE

Prime Minister Modi watched the puja over a live satellite feed that was broadcast to the Dubai Opera, where he addressed the Indian community.

Abbas has appealed to the worldwide community, including countries in Europe and the Arab world, to demand a say in future negotiations, but he has so far failed to secure commitments.

He said India had reached 100 in Ease of Doing Business rankings, from 142, four years ago.

This is Modi's second visit to the UAE after his trip in 2015.

India and the UAE on Saturday signed five Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.

India was undergoing a transformation, the prime minister said.

The Prime Minister who arrived in Abu Dhabi from Jordan on the second leg of his three-nation tour on Saturday, was received by Mohammed Bin Zayed and other members of the Royal family.

Mr. Modi further says that the future of humanity should not to be struggle with nature.

Referring to the plans of his government to uplift the poor, he said attitudes had moved from despair and frustration that change was impossible to asking questions of the government about when it would happen. "I believe this temple will not be only unique in terms of architecture and splendour, but will also give a message of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" to people across the world". "We must use technology as a means to development, not destruction", he told the gathering, amid applause. "Taking India story to the business leaders!

Prime Minister Modi met with Vice President and PM of UAE Sheikh Mohammed in Dubai", Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. The historically Muslim country already has one Hindu temple in the nearby emirate of Dubai. "But those who lost their sleeps, are crying even two years after the move", he said, even as he pointed that his government has made Goods and Services Tax a reality, which had been languishing for past seven years.

The temple, to be built on 55,000 square metres of land, will be hand-carved by Indian temple artisans and assembled in UAE, PTI reported.

Modi is now touring the UAE.
