By Team ADU

Orly Airport, Paris. 13 July 2023. It was a red carpet welcome for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in France despite some parts of the city seeing anti-Modi demonstrations. And oblivious to the sloganeering of “ Modi you are not welcome in Paris” the leader landed at Orly Airport with the French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne herself leading the host nation in welcoming him on French soil.
