New Delhi, Jan 14 (IBNS):  In an attempt to uphold the bilateral ties between the two nations, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will arrive in India on Sunday afternoon.

He is the second Prime Minister from his country after Ariel Sharon to visit India in the last 25 years of a diplomatic relationship.

The Israeli PM will be accompanied by a 130-member delegation from various sectors including cyber, agriculture and defence.

Later in the day, he will meet Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj.

On Monday, Netanyahu will be given a ceremonial reception at the Rashtrapati Bhawan which will be followed by the wreath laying at the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi.

He will also meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and hold delegation level talks.

Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had told reporters that Netanyahu will hold a roadshow with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad on Jan 17.

The two PMs will hold the roadshow for 8 kms. Both the leaders are likely to visit Sabarmati Ashram, abode of Mahatma Gandhi.

Rupani was quoted by NDTV: "According to the tentative schedule, Modi and Netanyahu would first visit the Sabarmati Ashram on their arrival here on January 17. Both the dignitaries will be accorded a grand welcome."

Both Modi and  Netanyahu will visit two centres of excellency in Ahmedabad and inaugurate one.

In July last year, Modi visited Israel as the first Indian Prime Minister since the establishment of bilateral ties in 1992.
