Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared stage with US President Donald Trump today for ‘Howdy, Modi!’ – an event to be attended by 50,000 people in Texas. The organisers — the Texas India Forum — have billed it as the largest-ever turnout for a foreign elected leader on US soil. “Howdy Houston! It’s a bright afternoon here in Houston. Looking forward to a wide range of programmes in this dynamic and energetic city today and tomorrow,” tweeted PM Modi, who landed in the US for a week-long visit on Saturday.
The Prime Minister, who will hold several bilateral meetings and address the United Nations General Assembly, held a round-table of US-based energy companies last evening. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who will also speak at the UN, is likely to flag Kashmir again.
Here’s how people are reacting to it :
What a line. What oratory. What mastery. “You introduces me to your family in 2017. I now introduce you to my family – a Billion Plus Indians (and 50,000+ in stadium itself). #HowdyModi— Akhilesh Mishra (@amishra77) September 22, 2019
