Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to the martyred soldiers of the IPKF on Friday and refused to use an umbrella to protect himself from a drizzle. After addressing the Sri Lankan Parliament stood in front of a statue of an Indian soldier for much more than two minutes. Army personnel presented a guard of honour as the PM was received by the Army chief. Various Political parties reacted differently to this gesture of PM Modi and certain groups were not in favour of Modi's visit.
