Jaipur/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron Thursday evening held a mega roadshow in Jaipur which was attended by hundreds of people who gathered on both sides of the road to greet the two leaders.

French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Jaipur on Thursday as part of his two-day state visit to India.

He is visiting the country as the chief guest in the Republic Day ceremony this year.

On his arrival, Marcon was greeted with a warm reception followed by the roadshow.

Modi gifted him with a replica of the majestic Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, which was opened to devotees across the world on Monday, with the Indian Prime Minister performing the main rituals of the 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony under the watchful eyes of a select complement of priests.

Macron held talks with PM Modi later in Jaipur before flying to New Delhi. The two leaders were expected to discuss major global challenges in economic, defense, space and cyber security, as well as France's role in the Indo-Pacific region.

France is looking to strengthen cooperation with India in areas ranging from climate to military sales, despite frictions over the two countries' attitudes to Russia's war on Ukraine.

They are expected to continue discussions on India’s plans to purchase 26 French Rafale fighter aircraft for its navy, approved by India's Defense Acquisition Council last year.
