PM Narendra Modi Bhutan visit: PM Modi asked the "brightest minds" of Bhutan to work hard

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday left for home after concluding his two-day state visit to Bhutan during which he held talks with the country's leaders to further deepen the bilateral ties.

"Thank you Bhutan! It was a memorable visit. The affection I have received from the people of this wonderful nation can never be forgotten. There were many programmes which I had the honour of taking part in. The outcomes of the visit will enhance bilateral ties," PM Modi said just before his departure from Bhutan.

PM Modi arrived in Bhutan on Saturday. This was his second visit to the country and the first since his re-election in May this year. He addressed parliamentarians and students at the Royal University of Bhutan in Thimphu this morning and spoke on the bond between India and Bhutan. 

Praising Bhutan, he said: "In any part of the world, if we ask the question what do you associate with Bhutan, the answer will be the concept of Gross National Happiness. I am not surprised. Bhutan has understood the essence of happiness." 

He also asked the "brightest minds" of Bhutan to work hard and take the Himalayan nation to great heights. "There is no better time to be young than now," PM Modi said. 

Here are the highlights of PM Modi's visit to Bhutan:
