Prime Minister Modi addresses the Indian community at the Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar on his bilateral visit to the nation.

“We share not only a border but also a lot of sentiments,” Modi told the diaspora.

We are not merely reforming India, we are transforming India. An India free from poverty, terrorism, corruption, communalism and casteism is being created.

He further said that any talks of India’s freedom struggle is incomplete without mentioning Myanmar. He further reminded the diaspora that it was at Myanmar that leader Subhash Chandra Bose said the words – “tum Mujhe khoon do, mai tumhe azaadi doonga (You give me blood, I will give you freedom.)”

The PM’s visit came amid a spike in violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine, after a military counter-offensive against insurgents killed at least 400 people and triggered the exodus of nearly 90,000 villagers to Bangladesh since 25 August.
