Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed the Indian diaspora in Japan and thanked the community for Increasing India’s prestige in the Nation.
Modi, who arrived in Japan on Friday evening to attend the 13th India-Japan yearly summit, detailed India’s technological and economic advancement during his tenure. “India is going through a huge transformative phase now. The planet is enjoying India because of its support to humanity. The country has been felicitated because of its policies and also for the job being performed towards public welfare,” he explained.
Hailing the expanding community of internet and telecommunications at India, Modi said, “Now India is making enormous progress in the area of electronic infrastructure. Broadband connectivity is hitting villages, more than 100 crore cell phones are busy in India; 1 GB is much less costly than a little bottle of cold beverage. This information is becoming the instrument for service delivery,” he explained.
Talking about Make in India, Modi said the initiative has emerged as an international brand. “We are producing quality products not just for India but also for the entire world. India is turning into a global hub, particularly in the area of electronics and auto manufacturing. We are quickly moving towards being no.1 in cell phones producing,” he explained.
Modi also gave the Indian community a sneak peek at the parties planned for Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth anniversary on October 31, that is celebrated as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas or National Unity Day throughout India.
“We observe Sardar Patel’s birth anniversary each year, but this time we will catch the interest of the whole planet. In Gujarat, his birthplace, Sardar sahab’s statue — the greatest in the world — has been constructed,” the PM said.
The PM will devote the statue to Patel on October 31. Erected on the banks of the River Narmada in Gujarat, the arrangement is double the height of the Statue of Liberty at the USA.
