How Prime Minister Narendra Modi enthralled Indo-Canadians

PM Modi

By NewsGram Staff Writer

As the crowd cheered and chanted ‘Modi, Modi,’ India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an estimated 10,000 Indo-Canadians on Wednesday in Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.

In an exceptional speech given just hours after meeting Canadian PM Stephen Harper, Modi said that he would work to build a stronger relation with Canada.

Modi took an opportunity to woo Canada’s vast and influential Indian diaspora in a first bilateral visit to Canada by a sitting Indian Prime Minister in over 40 years.

In a speech clearly directed to the Indo-Canadian community and delivered in Hindi, Modi said that, “There is a new atmosphere of trust in our nation. We say Jan Gana Man Adhinayak — that ‘Jan Man’ has changed.”

Modi also did not leave a stone unturned in attacking the previous governments. “Jinko gandagi karni thi, gandagi kar ke chaley gaye, hum safai karke jayengey (Those who had create a mess, they have done so and left. We will go after cleaning it up),”  he said.

Indian PM also commended the uranium trade deal, and Canada’s potash exports, which help Indian farmers.

In addition, Modi also referred to the Swachh Bharat campaign. He said that it is not just the government but the people are also coming forward with initiatives to clean their surroundings. He cited the effort of cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar in this regard.

“It is a sign of the change in people’s attitude (jan man) in the country. There is a lot of mess to be cleaned and it has been there for a long time now,” he said. He also spoke about the government’s step to build toilets in schools especially for girls.

“People wonder if the Prime Minister should talk about such things. Others may be different but I will talk about such small things. The face of India will change with such small steps,” Modi added.

In an hour long speech, Modi referenced Mangalyaan too. He said that, “We are the first country to reach Mars in its first attempt. Our Mars mission cost less than what it takes to make a Hollywood film.”
