London 2016 mayoral candidate George Galloway has condemned the state visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the UK, saying he is a "tyrant" who should not have been invited.

"The prime minister can invite whom ever he wants to London. But the rest of us are entitled to say not in our name and this invitation is not in our name. Modi is a four-letter word just like Sisi, the last dictator - tyrant - that David Cameron invited here. Well not in our name," said Galloway in front of 10 Downing Street on 12 November.

Modi is due to address the Indian diaspora at Wembley Stadium on 13 November, with up to 60,000 people expected to attend the event. Prior to that, he is expected to have lunch with the Queen at Buckingham Palace, an event many protesters raised their concern over.
