    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the world today wants to know what India is thinking.

    Concluding his three-nation visit, PM Modi arrived in Delhi in the morning and addressed his admirers who had gathered to welcome him. “The people here asked me why I gave the vaccines to the world. I want to say that this is the land of Buddha and Gandhi. We care even for our enemies… Today the world wants to know what India is thinking,” news agency ANI quoted Modi as saying.

    The PM lauded the “atmosphere of democracy” at the Indian diaspora event in Sydney, noting that not only the Australian Prime Minister and the ruling party leaders joined in, but also a former prime minister and opposition members.

    His comments come in the backdrop of 20 Opposition parties boycotting the inauguration of the new Parliament building, saying that the government has “sidelined” President Droupadi Murmu and insulted the high office of the President. However, PM Modi did not make a direct reference to this in his speech.

    He said he can look straight into the eyes of the world while talking about the culture of his country and this is because its people aided in forming a government with absolute majority in India. “Those who have come here are people who love India, not PM Modi,” he added.

    Talking about the release of the Tok Pisin translation of the book ‘Thirukkural’ in Papua New Guinea, PM Modi said, “Tamil language is our language. It is the language of every Indian. It is the oldest language in the world. I had the opportunity to release the Tok Pisin translation of the book ‘Thirukkural’ in Papua New Guinea.”

    PM Modi recently visited three nations — Japan, Papua New Guinea and Australia.

    On Thursday, Modi landed at Delhi’s Palam airport where he was garlanded by BJP National President JP Nadda and other party members on his arrival.

    Appreciating PM Modi, BJP national President Nadda said, “The world appreciates your governance model. US President Joe Biden asked for your autograph, this shows how the world is seeing India under your leadership… The way the PM of Papua New Guinea touched your feet, shows how much respect you have there. The people of India feel proud when they see that our Prime Minister is being welcomed like this,” he said.
