Washington. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will go to America in September. News Agency gave information about this. They will attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting here. Along with that, he will also address the Indian-American community in Houston.
According to the news agency, due to the population of Indian immigrants, only one in Houston and Chicago will be chosen for the Prime Minister's program. However, those who know the matter say that Modi will address the Indian community on September 22 in Houston itself. After this, on 23 September he will deliver a speech at a special meeting on climate change in the UN.
Modi has done programs in New York and Silicon Valley
Houston is also called the world's energy capital. Energy security is also a priority for Modi. This will be the third opportunity after becoming Prime Minister in 2014, when Modi will give a speech to the Indian-American community in America. Earlier in 2014, Modi's programs were also held in the New York Madison Square Garden and in Silicon Valley in 2016. There was a huge crowd of Indians on both occasions. According to an estimate, more than 20 thousand people from across the US used to listen to these programs in these programs.
The program can have a capacity of 70 thousand NRG stadiums
The preparations for the proposed program to be held in Houston have not started yet. However, those who make the event say that they can organize the event at the NRG stadium. Its viewer capacity is 70 thousand. One of the reasons for choosing Houston for the program is that there is a large number of Indian communities. Last year, the Governor of Texas and the Mayor of Houston also visited India. Apart from this, former Texas Governor Rick Perry (now Energy Minister) has a very close relationship with Indian-Americans.
