BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli on Monday said that US President Donald Trump confirming his participation in the 'Howdy Modi!' event in Houston is recognition of the fact that India's global prestige has increased under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"This indeed is a very important development that President Donald Trump will be participating and meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Howdy Modi event in Texas in Houston. Most of important of all it is recognition of testimony to the fact that India's global prestige has expanded enormously, under the Modiji's leadership,' said Kohli.
He further said that the event will be attended by approximately 50,000 people, which is to be held at the NRG Stadium in Houston and is being hosted by the Texas India Forum.
