No ban on visa to Modi, says British Minister

Chennai, Dec 11 : The British government does not judge Indian political leaders and there is no ban on issuing visa to Narendra Modi, Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate, a British minister said here Wednesday.
