Trump says he will meet with PM Imran, Indian PM Modi soon

Both scoff at traditional media and enjoy making pronouncements by Twitter.

Modi, who landed in Houston on Saturday (local time), will deliver his address at "Howdy Modi" on September 22 at the NRG stadium, which will also be attended by US President Donald Trump. "The audience will be the largest gathering ever for an elected foreign leader visiting the USA, other than the pope".

"[It's] a chance to try and beam across the world not just in India, but in the United States and the worldwide newspapers, and a chance to appear on stage with US President Donald Trump to gloss over much of the global criticism about his nationalist brand of politics".

Modi will be sharing the stage with US President Donald Trump as he addresses the Indian diaspora. There is anticipation that the US president, as he has promised, could make a "surprise" announcement to strengthen India-US economic ties.

This is the largest gathering of Indian-Americans, which is the most affluent minority group in America.

Modi is popular among Indian-Americans, a group that has not traditionally voted homogeneously in U.S. elections.

They are also among the most solidly Democratic. He said the recent elections showcased the Indian democracy's greatness across the world. Another key engagement of the Prime Minister will be a dialogue on responses to terrorist and violent extremist narrative.

In Houston, Mr Hoyer said, "As we welcome Prime Minister Modi to Texas, we are inspired by the modern India he leads while mindful of the challenges it faces".

India has for decades rejected any outside role on Kashmir.

Special permission was sought this time since India revoked Article 370 of its Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

India has taken sweeping measures including a communications blackout that has snapped off ordinary people's Internet and mobile telephone service across much of Kashmir.

More than 50,000 Indian-Americans from across the country have registered for the "Howdy, Modi!" event, the largest-ever gathering of this minority but effluent ethnic community in the US.

Modi said in the two years that Trump has been office, India - U.S. relations have reached "new heights".

"This was a really bad one", Trump said about Imelda. "This is a moment for Modi to burst outside of his bubble and hear some criticism of what's happening in Kashmir".

The Prime Minister will address the annual United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session in NY on September 27.
