Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the world in a globally broadcast live event from the historic Central Hall Westminster in London during his visit to the United Kingdom, following in the footsteps of speakers such as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Modi - the first Prime Minister to visit Bijapur, which was earlier a part of Dantewada district - used the occasion to exhort the youth to adopt the path of development and have faith in country's Constitution. It is the duty of the government to take care of your rights. They have come from outside to your state. This is an insult to their sacrifice, Modi said.
