New Delhi, April 21  Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will be visiting India from April 25-29, ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modis scheduled visit in the island nation next month for the Vesak Day celebrations.

The Vesak festival would be held from May 12 to 14. The opening ceremony would be held at Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), while the closing ceremony will be held in Kandy.

Several countries have been invited for the UN Day of Vesak celebration in Sri Lanka, which is being held under the theme ‘Buddha’s Teachings, Social Justice and Sustainable World Peace.

Prime Minister Modi will be hosting a luncheon meeting with Wickremesinghe here on April 26.
