British opposition leader meets Modi

London, Nov 14 (IANS) British leader of opposition Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday called on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the second day of his three-day visit to Britain.

“Engaging across the UK political spectrum. Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn calls on PM Narendra Modi,” tweeted ministry of external affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup.
