Members of the public hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit yesterday saying it signified the strong connection between Fiji and India.

A big crowd gathered at Albert Park in Suva to catch a glimpse of Mr Modi.

Roshni Pal, 61, of Tamavua in Suva, who is also a member of the Art of Living Foundation in Fiji, said she attended the event to experience the energy being poured out by Mr Modi’s visit.

“Mr Modi has been a practitioner for the Art of Living Foundation in India for a long time and we want to come and see and welcome him here today,” Mrs Pal said.

“I am glad to shake hands with him and he acknowledged us for coming to see him.”

Prema Wal, 66 travelled from Nawaicoba in Nadi to see the leader of the world’s biggest democracy.

“I listened to Mr Modi’s speech and I could say that my trip to Suva today was really worth it and a dream come true.”

Gurdev Kaur, 72, of Tamavua in Suva said she was over the moon when she shook hands with Mr Modi.

“The feeling of being able to meet him face to face was just unexplainable and the link and emotions that is brought with it was just indescribable,” Mrs Kaur said.

Meanwhile, Moreen Singh, 35, of Valelevu, in Nasinu thanked Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama for getting Mr Modi to come over.

She said the visit was an indication of strong bilateral relations that Fiji and India had.
