Indian diaspora in Dubai 'excited' with PM Modi's address

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

 The enthusiastic Indian disapora lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi post his passionate address and said that he is bringing India on a new level.

"We have been looking forward to this event since two months. PM Modi told us that he will provide us with security and stability here, which was very assuring," said an Indian national.

"We are excited with his speech. The fact that there will be a temple here in Dubai is something that is great and our community could not be happier with this news," added a Mangalorean residing in Dubai.

However, there were a few people who felt that the Prime Minister had not said anything concrete in his speech with regard to providing solutions to their problems.

"There is nothing new in what the Prime Minister said. Yes, we are very happy to hear about the developments happening in our country and it is a great matter of pride that an Indian Prime Minister has come here after so long but he has not provided any solutions to our existing problems," said a Malayalee residing in Dubai.

"We need something new, especially for our travelling issues to India," he added.

Prime Minister Modi earlier wooed the Indian diaspora in the UAE, saying that he saw a mini India in Dubai where all Indians living in the gulf nation are connected to each and every corner of India.

"I can see a 'mini India' in front of me. I salute all Indians, who have come from every corner of UAE. You are among those who are earning livelihood here for 15-20 years and continue to make India proud through your conduct," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing the Indian diaspora in the Dubai Cricket Stadium.

"People from Kerala are in UAE in large numbers. And I am especially talking about them due to the New Year festival today. Dubai is not just 'mini India' but a 'mini world'. People from across the world live here. Even those from the coldest region come in the country despite hot temperature," he added. (ANI)
