Thinni’s statement came hours after the peace talks among Libya’s warring parties resumed in Geneva, reported Xinhua.

Libya has been witnessing a frayed political process after the 2011 turmoil toppled its leader Muammar Gaddafi. The country is juggling with two rival parliaments and governments.

Thinni’s government, now exiled in the town of Tobruk, is internationally recognized but was driven away from the capital Tripoli by Islamist armed groups.

Earlier, Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari welcomed the Prime Minister and thanked him for regularization of the unauthorised colonies in the national capital.

Calling the Prime Minister a ‘messiah’ of the poor, Tiwari said BJP never goes back on its promises.

Tiwari said Delhi also needs a government of the BJP at least for five years. He chanted Modi’s name to draw cheers from the crowd.

Union MInister Prakash Javadekar said, ” Delhi will go to the polls in the next 45 days. I see BJP coming to power with a full majority.”

“What do you want — development or destruction, nationalism or anarchy, anti-national slogans raised in JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) or those who would end such activities?” said Javadekar.
