“The Indian Diaspora event in Sydney was not only attended by the Australian Prime Minister, but also by the former Prime Minister, MPs from opposition parties and the ruling party. This is the strength of democracy. They all participated in this Indian community program together,” Modi said, in what many saw as a subtle attack on opposition parties for their decision to stay away from the inauguration of the new parliament building.
The prime minister, who was addressing a gathering of BJP supporters at Palam airport on his return from a five-day trip abroad, refrained from referring to the opposition protest.
Morrison’s presence at the community reception had shocked many. The former Australian prime minister, who was fond of Modi, lost to the Albanese in a close contest, a result that raised concerns that the regime change in Canberra would affect bilateral relations that were on the rise due to mutual mistrust from Beijing. and other factors.

Modi welcomed the non-partisan show of support for better ties with India. “Everyone respected the Indian representative, and it was not about the glory of Modi but about the strength of India,” he said, adding that world leaders knew he was simply the voice of the Indians. He said that he spoke with confidence of India and the strengths of his people abroad and that the world listened because the people here had elected majority rule.
Although he was speaking after a grueling tour punctuated by a grueling schedule, the prime minister showed little sign of fatigue. He, too, did not seem fazed by the escalation of protests by an opposition galvanized by the BJP’s massive defeat in Karnataka.
“The challenges are great. But it is in my nature to rise to challenges,” the prime minister said, expressing confidence that his government will manage to meet these expectations on time. “Global expectations of the country have been rising.”
Modi spoke about the respect paid to him by the people of the Pacific island countries during the visit, saying that they were grateful to India for the covid-19 vaccines they had been sent during the pandemic.
Hitting his critics, the prime minister said he had been questioned for sending the vaccines. “Remember, it is the land of the Buddha, it is the land of Gandhi. We care even for our enemies, we are people inspired by compassion, ”he said.
Modi stated that the world was eager to hear the history of India and said that Indians should never suffer from a “slave mentality” when speaking about their great culture and traditions and instead speak out boldly. He added that the world agreed with him when he said that no attack on any of our country’s pilgrimage sites was acceptable.
Modi had raised Indian Albanian concerns over attacks on temples in Australia on May 24.
The prime minister said: “When I talk about the culture of my country, I look into the eyes of the world. This confidence has come because you have formed a government with an absolute majority. Those who have come here are people who love India, not Prime Minister Modi.”
About the publication of Thirukkural’s translation during his visit, the Prime Minister said: “Tamil is our language. It is the language of all the Indians. It is the oldest language in the world. I had the opportunity to publish the Tok Pisin translation of the book ‘Thirukkural’ in Papua New Guinea.” Tok Pisin is the language of Papua New Guinea, used by approximately three quarters of the country’s 4 million people.
Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said that the Papua New Guinea Prime Minister said that for him, Modi was ‘vishwa guru‘. “The Australian PM called PM Modi ‘The Boss’… Today, the world is seeing a new India thanks to the leadership of PM Modi,” Jaishankar said.
Party chairman JP Nadda, who was among the leaders present at Palam airport, said: “The way the Papua New Guinea prime minister touched their feet shows how much respect they have there. The people of India feel proud when they see our Prime Minister being received in this way.”
