Prime Minister Modi’s All Phones Arena, Sydney Speech in Hindi
A crowd of 16000 adoring fans cheered Narendra Modi at the All Phones Arena, Sydney. Indians from Sydney and Melbourne gathered to see the Indian Prime Minister visiting the Australian shores after a long gap of 28 years. Modi dedicated the welcome to the people of home country.,
“ This love, this welcome , this respect I give to the children of Mother India”. He said.
With all free tickets to the event snapped up, hundreds more watched the proceedings on a huge outdoor screen.
Prime Minister Modi pointed out that although it takes just one day to come to Australia, it had taken a Prime Minister of India 28 long years to arrive, and promised that it would never happen again.”Leave at night and you’ll reach Australia in the morning. But it took 28 years for the PM of India to come here. My friends in Australia, I assure you…you won’t have to wait for 28 more years for such a visit to take place,” he pointed out.
The Prime Minister also praised the scenic beauty of Sydney and talked about the shared bonds that bring India and Australia together.
“Sydney is a beautiful city. Australia is a beautiful country. Neither Australia nor India can live without cricket. Cricket has joined us, but before that, we had a cultural history that had linked us. Australia and India share common values and democracy,” he said.
He also explained that had it not been for democracy he would not have been present at the Allphones Arena today.
“The world looks at democratic counties with pride. Had it not been for a democracy would I be here? Let’s understand this strength of our democracy,” Prime Minister Modi added.
He also shared that he felt fortunate to be the first Prime Minister of India who was born in independent India, and hence, felt a greater responsibility.
“We must pledge that we will live for the country and we will struggle for the country. We did not get the opportunity to die for the nation or spend our youth in jail. But we can surely live for the nation, that is something that everyone has the opportunity to do,” he said.
