IN a bid to reach out to the Indian blue-collar community, PM Narendra Modi Saturday told Indian workers that it is their sweat and toil that brought him to Saudi Arabia. “It is your sweat and toil that has brought me here,” he told more than 300 workers of L&T at their residential complex. “Your happiness is my happiness and when you are not happy, I feel the same.” The workers are building the metro in Riyadh.

Asking them to download the Narendra Modi app, he said, “…I do not have any work… The work is being done by 125 crore people. If you download the app, I will always be in your pocket…what else do you want?”

“Your sweat increases India’s prestige… In the future, people will say that youth from India came here and built the project,” he said during the 17-minute speech. “Letters from your families reach me… When there is good news, it gives me joy; when there is bad news, it pains me. In fact, I am grateful to His Majesty, King (Salman), whenever he praises the Indian community, my chest swells with pride,” he said.

“You people have not only given a good reputation to India, but also have opened opportunities for Indian youth,” Modi said.

He went around shaking their hands and had some pakoras with them. (Foreign media reports)
