Washington DC: Hailing the success of the surgical strikes against the terror along the Line of Control (LOC), Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing Indian Diaspora in the United States, said that the move was a double-edged sword for which the entire world could have questioned New Delhi, but only those who faced the consequences took to criticising them.
The Prime Minister pointed that two decades ago when India talked about terrorism, it was perceived as a law and order situation, but today that understanding has improved as the threat has been affecting countries worldwide.
“Two decades ago, when India raised concerns over terrorism, the others thought that it was our law and order problem, because they themselves hadn’t experienced it, but today there is no need to explain to anyone what terrorism is,” he told the gathering.
Asserting that positive environment has enveloped India under his regime, Prime Minister assured that he will fulfill all their dreams they have for their motherland.
Prime Minister Modi further said that under his regime no cases of corruption have been reported against the government at the Centre.
“I assure you that whatever you have dreamt of India, I will fulfill them in your life time. People back in India are like you, you developed here and helped America grow because you got an environment to flourish, now back in India people are getting an environment to grow, they soon will make India developed,” he said in his address.
“Let me tell you that our nation is moving ahead with the pace like never before. Corruption has been a main issue stymieing progress of our country. I would like to assert that in the past three years of my government no case of corruption has cropped up,” he added.
Earlier in his conference with U.S. business honchos, Prime Minister Modi stressed that the whole world is looking at India today adding that growth for New Delhi also presents a win-win partnership for the United States.
Prime Minister Modi who touched down the Andrews Air Force base in Washington yesterday is on a bilateral visit to meet U.S. President Donald Trump.
He would be the first world leader to have a working dinner with U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.
Speaking ahead of the visit, India’s Ambassador to the U.S., Navtej Sarna, said that Prime Minister Modi and President Trump would discuss crucial issues such as counter-terrorism, security and cyber security.
