Recently PM Narendra Modi visited Lakshadweep on Thursday  also shared picture his picture on social media sitting on the beach he interacted with locals and submerged in the beauty of magnificent views of Lakshadweep – His emphasise during the tour was about booming the tourism sector. Insist the people to come and visit Lakshadweep when move for a tour.

Post of Maldivian minister:

The following were the derogatory comments:

  • Former deputy speaker of island nation Eva Abdulla on Sunday passed the comment saying- “shameful and racist”
  • The minister, in his now deleted post, called PM Modi a ‘clown’ and and ‘puppet’ over his recent Lakshadweep visit. Former Maldivian president Mohamed Nasheed condemned Shiuna’s comments, emphasizing the importance of maintaining diplomatic decorum and respect between nations.


Apology by ministers of Maldives:

The ex-speaker apologized to India and requested Indians to end the bycott campaign against Maldives.

In a talk with NDTV Ms. Abdulla said it is understandable that Indians are angry and the comments are outrageous indeed. However the comment are not the reflection of opinion of Maldivian people. I would like to apologies personally to Indians – she said. They want to maintain cordial relations with India.

Lakshadweep an alternative to Maldives:

The problem begin when PM Modi posted videos and Photos of Lakshadweep where he was seen as relaxing on the beach. And there comes the insulting jokes made by some Maldivian ministers as Modi’s social media post prompted the social media users to go for Lakshadweep as an alternative holiday destination to Maldives.

India expressed anger through Boycott Campaign:

How the Indian can sit after receiving such comments against their PM and as a result people of India began  #BoycottMaldives on social media platforms .

The Maldivian MP appealed the Indian people to end #BoycottMaldives social media campaign after a row began when many Indian people cancelled their planned holidays to Maldives and several people including Bollywood stars began to pitch Lakshadweep as an alternative tourist destination.

India Maldives relations:

Maldives is an island nation whose economy largely depend on tourism sector and Indians are obviously the big market for them. Indians   usually choose Maldives as their holiday destination and India have never been a troublesome country for Maldives.

Ms Abdulla reiterated the importance of strong and peaceful relations with india said our island nation depend on ‘’long standing ally’’ India for economic gains. And this response of India is not something Maldivian govt. can take.

Administration of Maldives will take care no such thing will ever happen against India – she said.
