Distinguished voices of the Indian diaspora in Malaysia hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong and progressive leadership for India’s rapid transformation during the last 10 years and his vision of a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region.

Speaking during the Sadbhawna event ' India’s Global Odyssey for Communal Harmony and World Peace’ organised by the Indian Minorities Foundation (IMF) in association with NID Foundation in Malaysia’s capital city 17 March, eminent dignitaries, business leaders, vice chancellors, academicians and members of Indian diaspora attributed India's ascent to global prominence as a testament to the nation's advancement in technology and economic prowess under PM Modi in past 10 years. They said PM Modi fulfilled the aspirations of millions by building Ram Temple at Ayodhya and reconnecting youth with Bharat’s rich heritage and culture.

A 'Malaysia Resolution' was also passed on the occasion with the Indian diaspora pledging their support for India’s progress and actively contributing to PM Modi's vision of a Viksit Bharat (developed India) by 2047. This Sadbhawna event included the launch of a book “Igniting Collective Goodness: Mann Ki Baat@100', which chronicles Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dialogue session with India since October 2014.

Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) and IMF Convenor Satnam Singh Sandhu presided over this event which was attended by Deputy High Commissioner of India at Kuala Lumpur, Ms Subashini Narayanan, NID founder Prof Himani Sood besides other dignitaries, and esteemed members of the Malaysia-based Indian Diaspora including Tamils, Malayalees, Punjabis, Gujaratis and Sindhis in larger numbers.

During the event, the members of the Indian diaspora said Modi is the most successful Indian Prime Minister whose good governance is behind the country's impressive growth story and inclusive development which has led to the upliftment of 25 crore Indians out-of-poverty during the past 10 years.
