Narendra Modi set for high profile meet with UK foreign minister after boycott row over
The high-profile visit is in line with UK PM David Cameron government’s decision to re-engage with Gujarat after its decade-long boycott of the Modi government following the post-Godhra riots in 2002.
Britain’s rethink on Gujarat first became evident in October last year when Swire sent British High Commissioner James Bevan to meet Modi. Britain also participated in a big way at the sixth Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors’ Summit held in January this year and Bevan had gone to the extent of saying that he felt like a “son of Gujarat”.
