外文标题：PM to NRIs at Pravasi Bharatiya Divas: India is full of opportunities now
GANDHINAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated the 13th edition of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas at Gandhinagar's swank Mahatma Mandir.
Modi, in his address to over 4,000 delegates who had arrived here for the event, said that several opportunities await the NRIs in India and that they will be welcomed with open arms.
"The world is seeing India with immense hope and optimism. The rich and the poor nations are looking at India...," Modi said in his inaugural address at the 13th PBD.
Modi praised the diaspora for putting India on the global map and said that they are admired all around the world for their values. "The whole world admires the Indian community not due to the money but the values they are living with," he said.
No matter what Modi says and promises, none of those NRIs will return to India and give up all the benefits they are enjoying in western countries. Some NRIs from Middle East countries might accept his proposal.
First provide proper opportunities to people living in India. Second jobs should be given on merit rather than caste. Why else do you think NRIs left the country? India can develop only if jobs are provided on merit and not caste.
NRIs to India are welcome , with arms full of dollars for investments . Revision of Labour laws and curbing of corruptions can attract NRIs more..

India under Modi, with one of his largest support base (33% of all NRIs are from Gujarat), should reinitiate dual citizenship issue, that started by Vajpayee Govt.

Make something concrete for them like dual citizenship etc. Congressmen said many things but did not deliver.

Dual citizenship is against the constitution and won't happen. This is fully understood and not demanded by the PIOs/NRIs. The relaxation of the bureaucracy regarding PIO/OCI and foreigners registration is sufficient.
This is BJPs trap to loot the NRI money by asking them to invest in india..

Lets hope india shines under you...
Those who want dual citizenship should be willing to pay taxes in India.
