India and Sweden are set to sign a security agreement when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits Stockholm next week, people familiar with the developments said, a move that will facilitate transfer of technology if Swedish defence major Saab is chosen to build fighter jets here. "Our daughters will definitely get justice", PM Modi said during the inauguration of Dr Ambedkar National Memorial in the national capital. They said, "In both cases, prime minister, it is your party which is in power".

"The welcome being accorded to the Indian Prime Minister is unprecedented in many ways".

The prime minister was in Bijapur to inaugurate a health and wellness centre at the primary level, the first of 1.5 lakh such proposed centres at the village level across the country under the Ayushmaan Bharat scheme.

"When you are in public life, people come to you with their version... After so many years of independence these districts still remain backward", he said. The letter said, "The bestiality and the barbarity involved in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old child shows the depths of depravity that we have sunk into".

He said the government was working with a different approach on the 115 backward districts, which are lebelled as "aspirational and ambitious districts".

"Each district faces its own challenges, and therefore, a different strategy is required in each case", he said. He also inaugurated a new rail line and a passenger train between Gudum and Bhanupratapur, bringing north Bastar region on railways map.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Health Minister J P Nadda were also present on the occasion. He made special mention of the development initiatives carried out in Chhattisgarh's southern districts of Sukma, Dantewada and Bijapur. "It would soon be recognised as an economic hub", he pointed out. He surprised thousands of people when he walked up to her, bent down and helped the bare-footed woman wear her new pair of slippers.

Welcoming those who had gathered here in "Halbi", a local dialect, Modi gave a "charan paduka" to a woman and hearing aid to another woman.

PM Modi will then head for his audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace before the Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath diaspora event to be telecast live from an as-yet undisclosed iconic central London venue on Wednesday evening. Within the United Kingdom over the past six years, several gurudwaras have been taken over by pro-Khalistan elements, several of whom regularly visit India while preventing Indian diplomats from entering gurudwaras newly controlled by them.
