.@narendramodi speaks of everyone, in every job, can do their job to the best of ability, in service to country and others #ModiInAmerica
Gabbard earlier met Miss America 2014 @NinaDavuluri backstage at the Garden.
As ABC News reported, Modi “appealed for help from Indian-Americans to help develop his country’s economy, vowing that under his leadership, the South Asian nation wouldn’t look back.”
On Monday, Modi will meet with President Barack Obama at the White House.
Modi’s visit is not without controversy.
ABC News says a federal court in New York on Friday “issued a summons for Modi for a lawsuit brought by a U.S. human rights group. It was filed on behalf of victims of the Gujarat violence that claimed more than 1,000 lives, mostly Muslims.”
Also, protesters outside the Garden said the Indian leader “failed to stop the anti-Muslim rioting as chief minister of Gujarat in 2002.” Signs read “Modi, the fascist” and “Stop spreading hate in the name of Hinduism.”
