You must have seen this in Thailand too,” he said.
The Prime Minister also referred to the BJP’s massive victory in the Lok Sabha elections held earlier this year in his address. “India is the world’s biggest democracy, and in this year’s elections, our people blessed me even more than last time.
And it makes me proud to say that more people came out to vote this time than ever in our post-Independence history,” he said, listing out the various welfare projects introduced by his government in India.
Addressing the Indian diaspora at the ‘Sawasdee PM Modi’ community event in Bangkok, Modi said that under the Act East policy, India-Myanmar-Thailand seamless connectivity will boost development in the entire North East.
Speaking on the Indo-Thailand ties, the Prime Minister said every moment shared between two countries in the past has built and strengthened relationships between the two countries and that “no government can be credited for its ties.”
In his speech, Modi also talked about the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. He said that India has eliminated a big reason behind the sowing of seeds of terrorism and separatism and that his government was working to fulfill those aims that seemed impossible.
“You are aware that India has decided to eliminate a big reason behind sowing of seeds of terrorism and separatism,” Modi said. Prime Minister will attend the 16th ASEAN-India Summit, the 14th East Asia Summit and the third summit meeting of Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership as part of his three-day visit to Thailand.
He will also participate in the annual East Asia summit and partake in a special leaders’ luncheon organised by his Thai counterpart, Prayut Chan-o-cha, on Monday.(With Agency Inputs).
