Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday unveiled Australia’s first ‘Little India’. Harris Park, a Sydney suburb in Australia will now be known as ‘Little India’. PM Modi and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese jointly launched it.

In Australia, Modi addressed the members of the Indian diaspora at a community event – to celebrate the country’s dynamic, diverse Indian diaspora, amid immense enthusiasm among the community members. “When I came here in 2014, I made a promise to you that you will not have to wait for 28 years for an Indian Prime Minister. So, here I am in Sydney once again,” Modi said.

Modi arrived in Sydney on Monday for the third and final leg of his three-nation tour during which he will hold talks with his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese on Wednesday.
