London: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Friday, the second day of his three-days long UK visit, said that the fact that the world’s confidence in India is increasing is proved by the fact that foreign direct investment into India has increased by 40 percent.
“ FDI into India has increased by 40 percent. It shows the increasing international confidence in India,” Modi said in Hindi in his much-awaited address to 60,000 wildly cheering British Indians at the iconic Wembley Stadium
Two dreams that we are working towards — a clean India and India with 24/7 electricity,
Earlier, British Prime Cameron and his wife Samantha, dressed in a sari, welcomed Modi as he arrived at Wembley Stadium.
After Modi met with organizers of the much-hyped event, the two leaders interacted with a group of schoolchildren of Indian origin who had performed in the cultural extravaganza that preceded Modi’s speech.
