Narendra Modi US visit: After his meeting with top American CEOs of multinational companies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today had an interaction with the Indian American community. Compared to the large gathering at the New York’s Madison Square in 2014, when he went to US for the first time as prime minister, there were only about 600 odd Indian-Americans at this exclusive meeting. The reason behind this small event was the lack of time. Earlier in the day, soon after he landed in Washington DC, the PM was given a rousing welcome by supporters who had gathered near the hotel he is staying during his visit. PM Narendra Modi will meet President Donald Trump tomorrow in the White House. Both leaders will discuss several pressing issues. In his address to the Indian diaspora, PM says, “You fill me with new energy.”
PM Modi said, “When I meet you all I experience the kind of joy one feels while meeting his/her family. You fill me with new energy.” PM Modi was speaking after entering the hall to a rapturous welcome. He thereafter said, “I will ensure that the dreams you have seen for India, I will get done within your lifetime.” PM added, “Have traveled across USA before I became CM or PM and after taking over as PM, the warmth the Indian community gave is memorable.”
