Congress leader and former Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi will hold a rally in New York’s Madison Square Garden for about 5,000 NRIs on June 4, according to a report.
The rally will be a part of his 10-day trip, which is expected to start on May 31, according to a news agency, which cited sources.
Gandhi will also travel to California and Washington for a panel discussion and address at Stanford University. During his trip, he will also meet with entrepreneurs and politicians.
Prior to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official state visit to the US on June 22, Gandhi will pay a brief visit to the country. On June 22, 2023, US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the country for an official state visit, which would include a state dinner.
“The upcoming visit will affirm the deep and close partnership between the United States and India and the warm bonds of family and friendship that link Americans and Indians together. The visit will strengthen our two countries’ shared commitment to a free, open, prosperous, and secure Indo-Pacific and our shared resolve to elevate our strategic technology partnership, including in defence, clean energy, and space,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement while announcing the visit.
“The leaders will discuss ways to further expand our educational exchanges and people-to-people ties, as well as our work together to confront common challenges from climate change, to workforce development and health security,” the statement read further.
PM Modi last visited the United States on September 23, 2021. In 2022, PM Modi and President Biden announced the India-US initiative of critical and emerging technology, or iCET, on the sidelines of the QUAD Leaders Summit.
