At the "Howdy, Modi" event in Texas, PM Modi will be joined by US President Donald Trump. In a statement on Sunday, the White House had said, "It will be a great opportunity to emphasize the strong ties between the people of the United States and India, to reaffirm the strategic partnership between the world's oldest and largest democracies, and to discuss ways to deepen their energy and trade."
On Monday PM Modi had tweeted that he was "delighted" that Donald Trump would join him at the 'Howdy, Modi' event in Houston and called it a "special gesture".
Over 50,000 Indian-Americans will attend the sold-out event at Houston's NRG Stadium.
