Greeted people gathered outside the airport
Prime Minister Modi greets people gathered outside the HAL airport in Bengaluru. During this, PM Modi also addressed the people. He said that when the scientists of the country give such a great gift to the country, achieve such a great achievement, then this scene which I am seeing in Bangalore, I saw the same scene in Greece as well as in Johannesburg. In every corner of the world, not only Indians, but people who believe in science, who see the future, who are dedicated to humanity, are full of such zeal and enthusiasm.
My mind is very eager to reach out to scientists: PM Modi
He said that you people came here so early in the morning. Small children, who are the future of India, have also come here so early in the morning. I was abroad at the time of Chandrayaan-3's historic landing, but I had thought of going to Bangalore first on my way to India. As soon as I go to India, first of all I will bow down to the scientists. This is not the time for my address, because my mind is very eager to reach out to the scientists.
