Kick-starting the second informal summit, Prime Minister Modi took the visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping on a tour of UNESCO World Heritage Site Arjuna's Penance, before settling down for the colourful performances.
PM Modi was seen explaining the finer details of the motifs in the Arjuna's Penance to the Chinese President when a dog was seen entering the place and crossing them. According to One India, Recently, some locals of the area were perplexed when the panchayat informed her that stray dogs in her area will be removed on account of the Modi-Xi informal summit. The local body, which removed stray dogs under the pretext of relocating them, hasn't revealed where it had taken them.
Xi was received in the coastal city by a veshti-wearing Modi. While the Chinese President opted for a relaxed outfit comprising of a crisp white full-sleeved shirt and black trousers, Modi looked like a true son of the soil in a veshti, angvastram and a white half-sleeved shirt for the first day of the informal summit.
The Blue Cross of India in Chennai informed that they have received many complaints from the residents of Mamallapuram about the missing of the stray dogs recently all of a sudden. Though the local body said they have shifted the dog to a different place, reported One India.
Modi and Xi kicked off their two-day informal summit on Friday, the second one after the Wuhan edition last year, at this coastal town located about 50 km from Tamil Nadu's capital Chennai. The two leaders had earlier visited three heritage sites housing historical monuments at Arjuna's Penance, Pancha Rathas and the shore temple, all key landmarks of this quaint town.
