After his powerful stint in the US, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the first Indian Prime Minister to address the gallery of Australian member of parliamentarians and leaders at a special joint sitting of Federal Parliament after he attends the G20 leaders' Summit in Brisbane next month.

While several MPs have expressed their delight and happiness for him to make his maiden trip as the PM, there are speculations that he would be delivering his historic address in Hindi like he has done in the past in other parts of the world.

Labor Senator from Tasmania Lisa Singh said Modi's speech in Hindi would mean he was bringing in respect, culture and strengths of India to Australia.

Other leaders who would also address the special sitting are British PM David Cameron and Chinese president Xi Jinping.
