In Pics: Narendra Modi addresses Indian diaspora in Sydney, Australia
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today told the Indian Diaspora living in Australia that there are many people who were born after independence and therefore could not get the opportunity to sacrifice their lives for the nation but they all have the opportunity now to live for the country.
“We couldn't die for the nation, but we can live for the nation, that is something that everyone has the opportunity to do,” Narendra Modi told a rapturous crowd at Allphones Arena of Olympic park in Sydney.
“I am fortunate that I am the first PM of India who was born in independent India,hence I feel greater responsibility. We couldn't die for the nation, but we can live for the nation, that is something that everyone has got the opportunity to do. It takes one day to come to Australia, but it took 28 years for an Indian PM to come here. My friends in Australia I assure you...you won't have to wait for 28 years,” said Modi.
