As Modi arrived at the airport, Indian community thronged the venue to have a glimpse of the PM. From airport he left for the Seoul National Cemetery directly to pay homage to the soldiers.
Addressing the Indian community in South Korea, PM talks about his act-east policy. He said that the world’s perception has changed for India, now India is emerging as one of the fastest growing economy in the world. Today people are excited to come to India.
The path is tough but we have embraced that path. The solution to all problems is development, Modi said. Development is not about big roads & buildings. It’s about a change in quality of life. For instance, I want every home to have a toilet, he added.
