‘Terrorism a joint threat, needs collective action’: PM Modi in Sri Lanka

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made an unscheduled visit to a Colombo church bombed during the Easter suicide attacks on his first trip to neighbouring Sri Lanka since his election triumph.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he had come to Tirupati to seek blessings of Lord Venkateswara after forming the new government. Prime Minister said that each Ministry of the government should focus on ease of living.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe, Colombo archbishop cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, and Minister Sajith Premadasa and the High Commissioner of India to Sri Lanka, Taranjit Singh Sandhu were also present at the occasion.

During the meeting, Cabinet Secretary P.K. Sinha tasked the sectoral groups of secretaries with preparing a five-year plan document for each Ministry, with well-defined targets and milestones.

During the informal interaction, Modi, sources said, also bounced the idea of making all 26 million infant deliveries that happen in the country, free. "He said the mandate reflects the will and aspirations of the people to change the status quo, and seek a better life for themselves", a government statement said.

Mr Modi said, every Central department and each district have a role in making India a five trillion dollar economy. "He touched upon the importance of the "Make in India" initiative, and the need to make tangible progress towards this end", the statement added.

Puri said in a tweet on Sunday, "Honouring the spirit of friendship & mutual cooperation between India & Sri Lanka, & to express solidarity with the people of the island nation, I am delighted to announce the resumption of additional Air India flight between New Delhi & Colombo from 15th July 2019".

He said that during the interaction today, he has seen that Secretaries have vision, commitment and energy to take the country forward.

"I want the Lord to bless us so that we can fulfil the dreams of 130 crore Indians together", Modi said at a public meeting here. He urged everyone to use technology to improve outcomes and efficiency in each department.

Since first becoming prime minister in 2014, Modi has stressed a "neighbourhood first" policy for the South Asian region, promising neighbours prioritised benefits of India's economic growth.

During the meeting, Modi said the recent General Elections, have been marked by pro-incumbency, for which credit must go to the entire team of officials, that have worked hard, conceived schemes, and delivered results on the ground, over the last five years.
