From Sweden, Modi will leave for Britain on April 17 evening.

Modi will arrive in Stockholm on April 16 in the afternoon in what will be the first visit of a Prime Minister from India to Sweden in 30 years since Rajiv Gandhi's visit in 1988.

Modi will also hold bilateral meetings with the prime ministers of the other four Nordic countries.

On the sidelines of the "unprecedented" welcome, Modi will also be greeted with some protests at Parliament Square on Wednesday afternoon, being spearheaded by Pakistani-origin peer, Lord Ahmed, and bringing together UK-based Kashmiri and Sikh groups.

Prime Minister Modi has never given a press conference since assuming office and he remains seemingly reluctant to speak up about issues such as lynching of suspected cattle smugglers and the two recent rape cases.
