A day before concluding his six-day visit to India, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will attend multiple events in Mumbai. His events for Thursday include having a power breakfast with Indian CEOs, attending a business forum and attending a Shalom Bollywood event. The Israeli PM will also be visiting Chabad House where he will meet with the Jewish community and also the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel where he will lay a wreath for those who lost their lives in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu was welcomed with a grand road show in Ahmadabad. PM Narendra Modi accompanied the Israeli PM and his wife to the Sabarmati Ashram and flew kites with the couple. The Israeli PM also attended a start-up exhibition with Modi and encouraged innovators. Describing the Indian PM as his “dear friend” Netanyahu said, “Now PM Modi is changing India by the force and vision of his leadership. He is revolutionising India. He is catapulting it into the future as one of the world’s great powers and he is doing it with the power of innovation.”

Carrying flags of India and Israel, thousands of people had lined up on the road leading to the Sabarmati Ashram. To welcome the Israel PM, 50 stages were set up along the 8-km-stretch where schoolchildren performed Indian folk dances.
