India Woos Young Diaspora At Pravasi In Bengaluru

PM Modi termed the remittance of almost 69 billion dollars annually by overseas Indians as "invaluable contribution" to the Indian economy calling the Indian diaspora to be "valuable partners, valuable stakeholders" for the country's economy. "We want it extended further", Abraham, who is based in the United States east coast, said.

"They are respected for the contributions they make", he said. "Among them are politicians of great stature, scientists of repute, outstanding doctors, brilliant educationists, economists, journalists, musicians, engineers, bankers and did I mention our well known technology professionals", Modi said. He said, Indians staying overseas are respected not only for their strength in numbers but also for the contributions they make. The Indian diaspora represents the best of Indian culture, ethos and values.

Modi also said that the central government was committed to the safety of Indians overseas.

"Security of all Indians overseas is top priority. We don't see the colour of passports, but the relations written by blood", the Prime Minister said.

"For the migrant Indian workers, a skill development programme called Pravasi Kaushal Vikas Yojana will be launched, targeted at Indians who seek overseas employment", he said. I would again encourage all PIO Card holders to convert their PIO Cards to OCI Cards. He added that beginning with Delhi and Bengaluru, the government has set up special counters for OCI cardholders at immigration points of airports.

The Mystery of Ronda Rousey
Rousey is a favourite, but only a slight one: around 7-5, which translates to only about a 58 percent chance of winning. Rousey featured ten fights with six ending in decisions, two by knockout, one submission finish, and one No Contest.

- The government's effort is to provide maximum facilitation and ensure least inconvenience to those workers who seek economic opportunities overseas.

Modi also said engagement with overseas Indian community was a key area of priority for the government.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak at the convention on Sunday. "They should know that we are never offered citizenship in the Gulf". In October past year, I had the honour of inaugurating the Pravasi Bharti Kendra in new delhi. Also, such persons travelling would not be required to register with the FRRO/Police authorities for any length of stay in India. This is your home.

Overseas Indians contribute $69 billion annually.

"Earlier there used to be talk of "brain drain".

Her foundation, Spravedlivaya Pomoshch, or Just Help, says she was accompanying a shipment of medicines for a hospital in Syria. Petersburg, declared December 26 a national day of mourning and said the cause of the crash would be carefully investigated.

Modi also spoke passionately about his fight against black money.

PM Modi said those terming the government's demonetisation move as anti-people' were the "political worshippers" of graft and black money which were making the economy, polity and society hollow.

"We took a massive step against corruption and black money".

"It is very saddening to see some black money supporters maligning the moves against corruption", he added.

Note ban is economic loot, not fight against corruption: Rahul slams Modi
The inclusion of couplets by renowned poets in his speech and using them to attack PM Modi as per the situation is admirable. He also repeated the charge that top corporate houses paid crores to Narendra Modi when he was Gujarat chief minister.

"Will you please help me in this mission?" We welcome you all to Maharashtra, the land of opportunities. His analogy of India being as accessible and near to NRIs and PIOs as the "maternal uncle's house in one's neighbourhood" is a refreshing welcome sign to the diaspora, which has historically held a grudge that India is an impossible and ungrateful place for those who chose or were forced by circumstances to leave its shores.
