NEW DELHI : Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived home on Saturday after concluding an ‘extremely productive’ week-long US visit, was given a rousing welcome upon his arrival at the Palam airport. The PM was felicitated at an event outside Palam Technical Airport shortly after his arrival in Delhi after concluding his visit to the United States of America.
On his turn, the PM thanked his party workers for giving a rousing welcome to him and the countrymen for their faith in his leadership and their unflinching support to him. ”I want to thank you all for coming in large numbers. This has been a memorable welcome back home. On this occasion, I bow to each and every Indian,” the PM said.
The highlight of PM Modi’s visit to the United States was the glittering “Howdy Modi” event in Houston on Sunday, where he and US President Donald Trump resolved to work together in matters related to trade, development and anti-terrorism activities.

”The programme in Houston, ‘Howdy, Modi’ was grand. The coming of POTUS was special. There were Republicans and Democrats. In addition to all this, what stands out is the manner in which the Indian community in USA, in Texas and in Houston showcased their presence,” the PM said.
The PM further said, ”After assuming office in 2014, I went to the UN. I went to the UN even now. In these five years, I have seen a big change. The respect for India, the enthusiasm towards India has increased significantly. This is due to the 130 crore Indians.”

The PM’s fight landed at the Palam airport around 8.15 PM. PM Modi was recieved by BJP working president JP Nadda and top party leaders at the airport. In his speech at the airport soon after his arrival, PM Modi thanked the people for coming to receive him in large numbers and giving him an opportunity to extol the country’s virtues on a global stage.
“After winning the elections in 2014, I had gone to the UNGA. I went there in 2019 too. But this time, I observed a change in their attitude towards India. The credit for the increased respect for India goes to 130 crore Indians,” he said.
He also praised the armed forces contributing to the country’s glory. “Three years ago, on the night of September 28, the brave soldiers of my country enhanced India’s pride by conducting the surgical strike. Remembering that night, I salute the courage of our brave soldiers,” said PM Modi.
Prior to his arrival, the airport premises witnessed colourful events with ecstatic crowds performing cultural dances and playing patriotic tunes to welcome a leader who had successfully showcased the country’s achievements before the international community. “We are proud to have a Prime Minister like Narendra Modi. That is why we have spared no effort to welcome him back to India,” one of his supporters at the airport said.
The Prime Minister ended his week-long visit to the United States with a series of tweets thanking everybody from Donald Trump to the people of India.
