The community of Indian citizens in the UK have launched a bus named ‘Modi Express’ in the honour of Modi whose sublime presence will be felt this year in November.
Sunday saw this bus first time on the road, whose first stop was at Ealing Road, Wembley, aka ‘Little India’.
“As we look forward to Prime Minister Modi’s visit in November, I am so encouraged to see members from across our communities coming together and supporting one another. I hope many of you get the chance to support and participate in what is looking to be Modi Mania in the UK,” Popat said.
Britain’s longest-serving Indian-origin parliamentarian Keith Vaz encouraged people to join him on the ‘Modi Express’ bus from Leicester saying, “even if you’ve left your oyster cards at home, be sure to bring your ‘Modi cards’ to join the ‘Modi Express’ wherever you are.”
Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, the London Borough where Wembley Stadium is situated said, “I am looking forward to welcoming Prime Minister Modi to Brent. There is huge excitement amongst all communities.”
Nitin Palan, coordinator of the ‘Modi Express’ bus said, “Our website will be going live next week. You will be able to book ‘Modi Express’ bus tickets to attend the event from all over the country.”
The event ‘UK Welcomes Modi’ will be held in Wembley Stadium whose ticket-sell would commence in a few weeks. The ballpark figure of the event attendees stands at around 1.5 million.
Narendra Modi’s greatness is gushing across the whole universe.
