The external Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, on 8 January, spoke to a large gathering in Madhya Pradesh state, calling the Indian diaspora the largest and most talented Indian community in the world.

The Minister of External Affairs with the Government of Madhya Pradesh welcomed members of the Indian diaspora in Indore from Jan 8-10, 2023. The convention’s theme was “Diaspora: Reliable partners for India’s progress.

Mr Minister, during his opening remarks at the convention, said: “Whether it is the startup of technology, the younger generations are leading the way in linking India to the rest of the world. Our goal is to give the diaspora the most of our support; our primary goal is to concentrate on online mechanisms for grievance redress. I am confident that young Indians, both at home and abroad, will accelerate this nation’s development. We work hard to improve the workplace and adopt a non-discriminatory approach.” NDTV reported

The Minister also praised the Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) community for their outstanding support shown to the Indian government throughout the most trying times of our COVID experience. “So as we meet today, I can truly say that our bonds have become even stronger as a result of all the trials and tribulations that we went through during the Covid period,” he added.

Jaishankar commented that India has the largest diaspora in the world and the country’s relationship with 34 million people of Indian origin is what brings us here. He explained that the identity of a diaspora is very much derived from how closely it is connected to its roots.

“Here, too, our efforts have been to encourage easier exposure to Indian culture and tradition abroad. Many of our Embassies, I think most of them today, now offer Yoga, dance and music classes,” he further stated, NDTV reported.

With the tenure of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India in 2014, the diaspora role has increased extensively and become an extension of the government’s foreign policy.
