In his speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a special reference to the implementation of GST.Modi had said that the GST implementation was a complex task but India was able to pull it through.

Modi assured the diaspora he will work to fulfil the dreams they have seen for their country's development.

"When India conducted surgical strikes the world experienced our power and realised that India practices restrain but can show power when needed", PM Modi said.

"Governments were changed because of corruption".

GST rates would depend upon whether the commodity is used by a rich person or a common man. There has been not a single blot on our government in the past three years. "Our people and institutions have steadfastly viewed democratic change as an instrument for renewal and resurgence", Modi said.

"Increased usage of technology brings transparency in systems. When I think of a developed India, I think of a healthy India, particularly the good health of women and children of our nation", he said.

The Prime Minister also said the warmth, the Indian community gave is memorable. PM Modi addressed the Indian diaspora at a community reception in Ritz Carlton in Washington DC.

For them it was a law and order problem, because they were not the sufferers.

Referring to the H1B Visa regime, she said, "As an American citizen of Indian origin, we want that everyone should have jobs and tech savvy people are required both in America and India". "Terrorists have themselves explained it to them".

Attorney Ravi Batra said Modi promises Indian-Americans that India will be a global force for good because India's 800 million youth's dreams are "young dreams".

Ashley Tellis, an expert on South Asia at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said the U.S. decision to offer the Guardian aircraft to India is significant as the United States has a standing policy of declining export of such advanced drones other than to allies involved in combined operations with USA forces. For us the concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - the world is one family - are not just words. "This is our character", he added.

Given Goa's strong cultural and historic connection with Portugal, Modi's visit, the first leg of his three-nation tour that will also take him to the U.S. and the Netherlands, is significant. Pence later added that Trump wanted to make it clear to both India and Pakistan that "when this administration takes office, that we intend to be fully engaged in the region and fully engaged with both nations to advance peace and security". "All my family members are settled in America..."
