PM Modi urges diaspora to help boost tourism

Houston, Sep 23 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged Indian Americans to help boost tourism in India by bringing at least five non Indian families to India.

“Can you do a small work for me, can I depend on you?” he said during a community reception by the Texas India Foundation, that had organised the massive ‘Howdy Modi’ event earlier.

“I am asking Indians to make a promise to bring at least five non-Indian families to India,” to which the audience clapped.

Praising the Indian American community, the PM said they have set the foundation for a bright future for India-US ties.

The PM unveiled the plaque of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Eternal Gandhi Museum, inauguration of the Gujarati Samaj of Houston Event Centre and for a Siddhi Vinayak temple.

“The Eternal Gandhi museum will be a prized cultural landmark in Houston. I have been associated with this effort for a while. It will surely make Gandhi Ji’s thoughts popular among the youth,” he said.
