PM Modi asks why Rich Indians are Marrying In Foreign Countries? By Prashant Dhawan
NEW DELHI: Making a pitch for holding destination weddings within the country instead of overseas venues, PM Modi in his Mann ki Baat address on Sunday said this would promote the development of such high-end infrastructure in India and lead to job creation.
“Since the topic of marriage has come up, one thing has been troubling me off and on for a long time… and if I don’t open up my heart’s pain to my family members, who else do I do it with? Just ponder, these days a new milieu is being created by some families to go abroad and conduct weddings.
Is this at all necessary? If we celebrate the festivities of marriages on Indian soil, amid the people of India, the country’s money will remain in the country,” Modi said.
He added that if rich families did so, people here would get an opportunity to render some service or the other at such weddings and even the poor would tell their children about the occasion.
PM Modi plucked the correct string
Indians need to introspect
Our INDIA has everything Desert, Jungle, Mountains, Snow, Mild, etc all we have. Mr Modi is right
Pm Modi is not only a great prime minister, he is a true indian
Modi ji is truly patriot
Yes- destination wedding should be in India like places like Andaman's or Goa- and government should also make infrastructure and develop such luxury resorts type destinations in India itself!!
INDIA IS LUCKY TO HAVE PM MODI - SO WISE AND THOUGHTFUL OF HIM TO SAY THIS IN THE BEST INTERESST OF INDIAN CITIZENS
I am an Indian who lives in USA and grew up in USA, but I had my wedding in India, my homeland. I always wanted my wedding in India because I wanted all my family there and also because Indian weddings are the best in India. Jai Hind. <3
Then don’t live in USA come to India and live here
@harashussein5684 man he grew up there and might have everything there like family and businesses.
But you left India
You are not Indian you are American
I am a well-educated NRI, making money abroad but investing nearly 70% of my earnings(savings) in India. However, when I return to India during holidays, I am sometimes disappointed with the services I Get.
Thank you & salute to your Patience. We are growing. Wait for sometime. India gives you the best experience.
I understand. Give it some time things will IMPROVE

My friend has also decided that he will marry in India after listening Modi ji's Man ki Baa.Otherwise he was also planning to go to Europe.
Thanks my friend for being loyal for our Mother Country
Modiji is down to Earth man ....he talk on every issue wheter it is small or big.....he doesnt think what people think....if its issue then it need to be solved
As a person from northeast this is funny to me... Our culture is too special and unique.. learn to embrace own culture
Then marry and wedding on North east too! It's in India. But if you go to maldeep, nepal or Bhutan. Then you are spending on the foreign countries. You are giving them the indian moneys! It's your motherland too!
This is the best prime minister we have ever had
Yesterday my sister get married it's a emotional moment for whole family especially mom and dad but new journey start it's good to see both are financially independent and wedding held in the india
Narendra Modi is a genius PM of India. He always points out important issues and its solution. Other politicians of India must consider this issue as non-important. But this issue is definitely an important issue.
