Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Tuesday, said that the Indian diaspora is making a mark all over the world and they are the country’s Rashtra-doots. PM Modi said this while addressing the Indian community in Rwanda.

PM Modi, who is on his three-nation visit to Africa, arrived in Rwanda on Monday.

“All over the world, the Indian diaspora is making a mark. They are our ‘Rashtradoots’,” the Prime Minister added.

“For years the Indian community in Rwanda wanted a High Commission. This long pending demand will be fulfilled and you will be connected even further with India,” he told the gathering.

Later in the day Prime Minister Modi visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to pay tribute to the genocide victims. He also visited Rweru Model village, where he donated 200 cows under the Girinka programme, a scheme initiated by President Kagame in response to the high rate of child malnutrition.
