New Delhi: BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Thursday said NRIs should not be "weighed in dollars and pounds" and their experience should be used to give new direction to the nation.

"When we talk about NRIs, we think that they will bring dollars and pounds. Our Indian brothers and sisters should not be weighed in dollars and pounds," Modi said at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas.

"They have a different work culture, global exposure, knowledge and experience. This experience can take us in a new direction," he said.
