PM Modi Full Speech at Inauguration of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated this year’s edition of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas this morning at Gandhinagar’s swank Mahatma Mandir. About 4000 NRIs from 58 countries are expected to attend the annual fest that brings together members of the Indian diaspora.
He said that the “Indian nationals are there in over 200 countries. They have taken India there with them, 177 countries supported India’s proposal to celebrate International Yoga Divas at United Nations. There is a different strength when we meet our own people and share our joys, sorrows. It is a source of great energy. Everything is not measured in dollars or pounds and the relationship we have with Pravasis is beyond that.”
