The strengthened and tactical diplomacy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led centre has led India to be on the top. Don’t believe this? Right from Masood Azhar’s designation as global terrorist to making world understand the difference between ‘good terrorism’ and ‘bad terrorism’, it was a great success for India and the credit goes to PM Modi and cabinet ministers and also diplomats. In the meantime, PM Modi and his team successfully developed good relations with the international community as well.

Not only on the diplomatic front but PM Modi has developed friendly relations with the heads of several nations. Recently, we saw the presidents of two nations personally holding an umbrella for PM Modi instead of security staff who usually are seen carrying them for world leaders. Well, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been left humbled by the kind acts of the two presidents.

As soon as PM Modi arrives in Bishkek for the SCO summit, he was extended a ceremonial welcome by the Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbay Jeenbekov when the rains came down. Photographs from the event showed Jeenbekov holding an umbrella for the PM.

The same instance happened on last Sunday when PM Modi was being accorded a ceremonial welcome by Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena in Colombo. When the skies opened up, Sirisena was seen holding an umbrella and providing cover to himself and Modi. As per sources, the gesture of both the Presidents has reportedly left Modi deeply touched.

“Different places, same special gestures: Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov hold the umbrella themselves instead of security staff and walk with PM Modi,” tweeted Prasar Bharati News Services.
