Indian PM Narendra Modi is in Houston to address 50,000 Indian-Americans community for ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event where US President Donald Trump will be joining him to address a mega rally.

PM Modi arrived in Houston on Saturday and tweeted, “Howdy, Houston”, the traditional way of greeting in Texas. Posy his arrival, PM Modi met leaders of the energy sector in the US with the aim of working together for energy security and expanding mutual investment opportunities between India and the US.

He has also met members of the Sikh community who handed him a memorandum. The Indian PM also met a delegation of Kashmiri Pandits, who voiced support for the “steps being taken” in India.

The “Howdy Modi” event on Sunday at the sprawling NRG Football Stadium here is the largest gathering ever for an elected foreign leader visiting the US, other than the Pope. US President Trump’s presence at the Houston event marks a new milestone, Modi had said in his departure statement ahead of his visit.

This would be the first time a US President is attending an Indian-American community event with Modi.

Kashmiri Pandit says PM told the community they have suffered a lot.

Surinder Kaul, Kashmiri Pandit who met PM Modi in Houston this morning told ANI, “PM told us you’ve suffered a lot together we’ve to build new Kashmir. Our youth presented him with the messages that the community have prepared for him. I presented a memorandum on behalf of the community.

He gladly accepted that. We thanked him on behalf of the 7,00,000 Kashmiri Pandits all over the globe for such a historic decision. We assured him that our community will work with the government to fulfil your dream for a Kashmir which is peaceful, full of growth where people are all happy.”
