Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hailed the Indian diaspora in US, saying India would have still be perceived as a land of snake-charmers if the NRI community had not made presence in every corner of the world.
Addressing a mammoth of crowd of about 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden in New York on the third day of his five-day trip, Modi said,” Winning elections is not about any post or chair, but a responsibility.”
The PM promised that his government which rode to power following a landslide win in the Lok Sabha polls this year, will be able to fulfill the aspirations of the people of India and also those Indians living abroad.
“America is the oldest democracy of world, India is the biggest democracy,” he said.
On this occasion, Modi also announced sops for PIO(Persons of Indian Origin) card holders, saying that they would get a lifelong visa.
Also, Modi said the PIOs will not have to suffer humiliation by visiting the nearest police station time and again.
Modi, whose visa ban was revoked only when he took over as PM, announced long-term visa for US nationals.
