The Indian diaspora has stood out around the world: PM Modi
The Prime Minister was greeted by Native Americans at the airport shortly after his plane landed in Washington on September 22, and then at the hotel where he interacted with community members.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the Indian diaspora for standing out across the world as he received a warm welcome from the community upon his arrival here.
He was greeted by groups of American Indians at the airport shortly after his plane landed here on Wednesday and later at the hotel where he interacted with community members.
“I thank the Indian community in Washington DC for their warm welcome. Our diaspora is our strength, ”Modi said in a tweet accompanied by a series of photos of his interaction with Indo-American CEOs.
“It is commendable how the Indian diaspora has distinguished itself across the world,” Modi said.
One of the highlights of the Prime Minister’s overseas visit was his meetings with the diaspora community at large gatherings.
However, due to the current COVID-19 situation, the Prime Minister is unlikely to hold a large rally or meeting with the diaspora.
Mr. Modi has been popular among American Indians, who constitute over 1.2 percent of the country’s population.
Previously, the Prime Minister was received by TH Brian McKeon, Assistant Secretary of State for Management and Resources on behalf of the United States government.
Exuberant members of the Indian diaspora were also present at Andrews Air Force Base and they warmly greeted the Prime Minister, according to a press release from the MEA.
