'Howdy, Modi!' - Thousands, plus Trump, due at Texas rally for Narendra Modi
Updated : September 22, 2019 04:10 PM IST
It will not be the first time Modi has addressed a large crowd in the United States, which is home to about 40 lakh Indian-Americans including about 300,000 in Houston and nearby Dallas.
Some 19,000 people turned out for a similar event in New York in 2014, and Indian-American volunteers living in US suburbs helped run a telephone blitz of voters in India in the runup to his May reelection campaign.
Modi's visit to Houston comes ahead of this week's UN General Assembly in New York and amid a particularly tense time on the subcontinent.
