Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a special request to Indians living across the world on Sunday - send at least five non-Indian families to India as tourists every year.
Addressing the 50,000-strong Indian-American community at the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event in Houston, Texas, Modi said, "Can you do something for me? It is a small request. I am saying this to all Indians living all over the world. You take a decision that every year, each one of you will send at least five non-Indian families to India as tourists."
The prime minister also unveiled the plaque of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Eternal Gandhi Museum, the inauguration of the Gujarati Samaj of Houston Event Centre and a Siddhi Vinayak temple.
"The Eternal Gandhi museum will be a prized cultural landmark in Houston. I have been associated with this effort for a while. It will surely make Gandhi Ji's thoughts popular among the youth: PM," the PMO said in a tweet.
