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 on November.
It is expected that the Prime minister would be delivering his historic address in ‘Hindi’ as he has done the same in the past in other parts of the world.
Labour Senator from Tasmania Lisa Singh said Mr. Modi’s speech in Hindi would mean he was bringing in respect, culture and strengths of India to Australia.
“I think it shows that he is bringing the respect, the culture and strengths of India to Australia. And I think it is important that he makes this journey to our country,” she said.
Other leaders who would also address the special sitting are British PM David Cameron and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
