Ufa (Russia): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said India will help develop infrastructure in the Central Asian region.
“Our ties with Central Asia are very old,” Modi said while addressing the 15th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit here.
“India will be pleased to contribute to the development of infrastructure in the region,” he said.
The prime minister noted that India has been “actively participating in SCO activities that are open to observers”.
“Our membership of SCO is a natural extension of these relationships and mirrors the region’s place in India’s future,” he said.
SCO leaders are set to pass a resolution on starting the procedures to grant India and Pakistan full membership of the organisation.
Founded in 2001, the SCO has China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan as its full members.

If the whole hijra community was looked upon with enamour and respect in our history, what happened that when we come across the community we look at them with contempt and are filled with a mixture of negative, fear, laughter, and odd emotions. It's owing to the fact that under British Raj, the Criminal tribes Act 1871 hijras were criminalized and the law was made to eradicate the whole community. However, these acts were abolished by the Indian government after independence, and by 2014, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh all had officially recognized third gender people as citizens deserving of equal rights where the third gender means individuals categorizing themselves as neither male nor female. Even though the progress is slow but in 2015 Madhu Kinnar became the first hijra mayor in India was elected in the city of Raigarh.
