22-May-2014

"When I met Mr. Narendra Modi (please see photos in the image gallery), I spent almost 45 minutes with him. I requested him to strengthen ties within the SAARC region. The man is really action and result oriented, he had assured me then that he will take SAARC agenda on priority. He also got quite interested in the role of SAARCLAW." said Hemant Batra, SG, SAARCLAW while talking to the local media.

The Indian Government on Modi's instructions has invited all the SAARC leaders - heads of nation for the oath ceremony on 26th May when he takes over as PM of India. It is said that his office and advisors are seriously following-up and expect representation from all the SAARC nations.

Hemant Batra also said "I think this is good beginning after a long stalemate . The situation reminds me of a famous quote of Benjamin Franklin – Life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by change."
