Thiruvananthapuram, May 24 (UiTV/IANS) - Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday lost his cool on the floor of the assembly and spoke sharply at senior Congress legislator V.D. Sateeshan, who raised the issue of bickering between senior state bureaucrats.

The immediate provocation for Vijayan to lose his cool was when Sateeshan referred to his economic advisor Gita Gopinath's father who runs a farm from which the state-run Horticrop was procuring vegetables and was paying promptly, while he alleged, poor vegetable farmers in Idukki district were not getting paid on time.

Prime Minister Modi To Strengthen The Defense Technology Ties With Israel

Tel Aviv - Israel, May 24 (Uitv) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be the first Indian Head of the Government to visit Israel. In his two-day visit starting July 5, the PM will visit Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, during the course of which India and Israel are slated to sign agreements on defense, agriculture, water conservation and innovation/start-ups.

The microbiologist who is said to have created the ‘Madison Square’ template for Modi’s foreign trips says that UPA may have kept India’s relationship with Israel under the radar due to vote bank politics.

PM Modi would be the first head of the government to visit Israel. This comes almost 25 years after India established diplomatic ties with Israel.

The ties between the countries have  improved even during Vajpayee era when Areal Sheron became the first Israeli Prime Minister to visit India.

India values its relationship with the Arab countries, but equal weight-age to Israeli partnership is given. India has had close ties with Israel in many areas, including defence.

On the issue of de-hyphenating our relations with Palestine, supported the cause of Palestine, but a partnership with Israel has many dimensions.
