The Prime Minister officially opened Ozfest at Deli’s historic Old Fort last night.

Indigenous artists helped kick off the four-month festival, featuring more than 100 events in 18 different Indian cities.

Earlier, Ms Gillard attended a Young Leaders forum at the Australian High Commission.

And was put on the spot, when asked how she really felt about the Opposition Leader.

Julia Gillard, Prime Minister: “That’s a very hard question. Day to day I don’t spend much time thinking about the Leader of the Opposition. I bear him no personal ill-will and I hope he is the leader of the opposition for the rest of his life.”

The Prime Minister’s final stop on her three-day tour is a meeting with both the President and the Prime Minister, where her plan to sell uranium is sure to be discussed.
