A Hug, Roadshow With PM Modi As Japan's Abe Starts Gujarat Tour

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe changed into a Indian-style kurta-pyjama and Nehru jacket today before going on a roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi after landing in Gujarat's Ahmedabad for a two-day visit. Underscoring the importance of India-Japan ties, PM Modi went to the airport and received his Japanese counterpart with a warm hug. Mr Abe, who is on his fourth visit to India, paid tribute at Mahatma Gandhi's Sabarmati ashram and visited the 16th Century mosque 'Sidi Saiyyid Ni Jaali'. The highlight of his visit will be tomorrow's launch of India's first bullet train project, which will run between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The project is getting financial assistance from Japan.
