Houston, September 22
Time for a decisive battle against terrorism has come, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday as he defended revoking Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
Modi also praised India’s democracy and said Indians are working day and night to realise its goal of new India.
“India working day and night to realise its goal of new India; we are challenging and changing ourself,” Modi said.
Before the event, Trump tweeted: "Will be in Houston to be with my friend. Will be a great day in Texas!" To this, PM Modi replied: "It surely will be a great day!"
From Houston, Modi will fly to New York, where a packed schedule awaits him. On Tuesday, he is scheduled to meet President Trump on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
Soon after his arrival in Houston, #HowdyModi started trending on social media.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who is also a Democratic presidential aspirant, greeted the prime minister on Twitter.
“Indian PM Narendra Modi has just arrived in Houston. And we cannot wait to say hello. Are you ready Houston?” she said on the microblogging website.
“We are already here to welcome our Beloved PM,” said Rikin Talati. — Agencies
