British PM Theresa May becomes second world leader to take stroll with Narendra Modi at Hyderabad House garden
British Prime Minister Theresa May arrived on Sunday night on a three-day visit to India.
New Delhi: British Prime Minister Theresa May became the second world leader to take a stroll with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Hyderabad House garden on Monday.
Before her, US President Barack Obama had done the same with PM Modi.
During his January, 2015 visit to India, PM Modi had hosted Obama for tea at the Hyderabad House gardens.
The two leaders had taken a stroll under a warm wintry sun.
PM Modi received May at the Hyderabad House and the two leaders were seen talking to each other during the brief stroll.
They stopped for while near a pond full of water lilies before continuing their walk towards the iconic main building, used mostly to hold high profile bilateral events with visiting foreign dignitaries.
Tweeted about the stroll, MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup wrote, "A time for reflection, an occasion to forge a special connection. The Prime Ministers take a walk in the gardens of Hyderabad House."
