- Bill Gates' tweet about visiting India has touched a chord with people
- 'I try to visit India at least once a year,' he says on Twitter
- The tweet also links to his blog in which he has praised PM Modi
The business mogul and philanthropist's tweet also links to his most recent blog in which he praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat campaign, which aims to end open defecation by 2019.
Referring to PM Modi's first speech on Independence Day three years ago, Mr Gates says in his blog: "I can't think of another time when a national leader has broached such a sensitive topic (open defecation in the country) so frankly and so publicly."
"What I love most about Clean India is that it identified a big problem, got everyone working on it, and is using measurement to show where things need to be done differently," he adds.
While his words for PM Modi won him a lot of love online, his tweet about visiting India and being inspired by the country has also touched a chord with people.
