Much of the country has been reported to have been plunged into poverty under his leadership.

Dozens of demonstrators are expected at noon on Sunday in George Square in Glasgow to protest against Mr Modi’s visit.

Harsev Bains of Kisan Morcha Support Group Scotland said: “Mr Modi is coming to Cop 26 in Scotland, not so much to deal with climate change which is impacting the world, which we desperately need, but to sell the India to the highest bidder in the world market.

“There is understandably nervousness among the Indian diaspora in Britain as people remember the East India Company and their agreements that led to centuries of colonial rule by Britain.

“It is widely feared that Mr. Modi’s visit will be the catalyst for the strengthening of modern neocolonialism. The rise of new empires.

Farmers and their families have been demonstrating in India for months, camping in Delhi to protest the government’s new farm laws which they say will ruin their livelihoods.

Mr. Bains said: “We are raising our collective voice in solidarity with the farmers’ protests and all their just demands.”

“Today we support the Indian people.

“Hindus, Dalits, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and all citizens of India who are divided and exploited as majority and minorities after 75 years of independence.

“We stand up in fraternal solidarity with the people of Kashmir for the restoration of the state.

“We appeal as citizens of the Republic for the maintenance of constitutional democracy.

“As patriots and heirs to the freedom fighters, we are committed to maintaining the integrity and unity of India.

“We demand that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has presided over the wrenching of the constitution, rising hunger and poverty and declining human rights, listen to the Indian people and immediately respond to their demands for social justice. “
