Six months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to his country, Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu pays state visit to India on Sunday.
After Ariel Sharon, Benjamin Netanyahu is only the second Prime Minister of the Jewish state who visited India in last 25 years of diplomatic relationship.
Netanyahu is on a six-day visit to Inida. During the visit, he will hold a road show with PM Modi in his home state Gujarat.

Netanyahu will be accompanied by a delegation of 130 members from various sectors including cyber, agriculture and defence.
