Former Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah, who rarely praises PM Narendra Modi, has reacted positively to the PM’s invitation to US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka to India. Taking to Twitter, the former J&K minister wrote,”Very clever diplomacy by PM Modi inviting the First Daughter given the power equations in the White House & Trump weakness for family (sic).” Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday extended a warm invitation to President Donald Trump and his family to visit India. “I would like to invite you to India, along with your family. And I hope that you will give me the opportunity to welcome you and host you in India,” Modi said in his remarks, standing along side Trump at the White House’s Rose Garden. PM Narendra Modi also specially invited Trump’s daughter Ivanka to lead the US delegation to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India later this year. “…And I believe she has accepted,” Trump said.
