New Delhi: As soon as the swearing-in ceremony was over and Modi 3.0 had begun, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was back on the job and had a detailed conversation with Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu at the dinner table during Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet late on Sunday evening.

It is learnt that President Muizzu was seated next to PM Modi as the Indian PM was seen having a serious conversation with the Maldivian head of state. Muizzu visited India seven months after taking over as President on November 17, which is seen as an unusually long time for a Maldivian President. Muizzu ran his election campaign on the “Out India” slogan but the matters got complicated as his junior ministers started making controversial statements on India.

While Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe is expected to depart for Colombo by noon, other leaders will hold meetings with the External Affairs Minister (still to be announced) and later call on President Draupadi Murmu.

President Muizzu and other visiting dignitaries like Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Nepal Prime Minister Prachanda, Bhutan Tshering Tobgay, Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth and Seychelles Vice President Ahmed Affif will also be holding meetings with External Affairs Minister calling on them and then all the dignitaries meeting the Indian President.
