Friends, I am visiting Singapore at a sad moment. 

The passing away of H.E. Mr. Lee Kuan Yew marks the end of an era. 

He was among the tallest leaders of our times. 

Singapore`s transformation in one generation is a tribute to his leadership. 

In the 50th anniversary year of Singapore`s independence, I am sure that he left satisfied with Singapore`s achievements and confident about its future. 

He inspired not just Southeast Asia, but all of Asia, to believe in its own destiny. 

He was a global thinker, who saw things ahead of others. He was an advocate of economic progress, but also made tireless efforts to advance peace and stability in our region. 

In India, we deeply valued his friendship and his support for India`s economic progress and global role. 

He believed in India`s potential more than many of us did. 

India`s economy is growing rapidly. 

India`s relations with Singapore is one of our strongest relationships in the world. 

India`s integration with Southeast Asia and beyond is growing. Singapore is a key pillar of India`s Act East Policy. 

So, his vision is coming true. The seeds he sowed are bearing fruits today. 

Personally, he was a source of inspiration for me. His achievements and thoughts give me confidence in the possibility of India`s own transformation. 

The people of India share this nation`s grief over the loss of its founding father and leader. 

We are observing a day of public mourning in India today in honour of the departed leader and the deep bonds of friendship that we share with Singapore. 

I bring here today the condolences and prayers of the people of India.

The Prime Minister was welcomed and facilitated upon his arrival. This was followed by the arrival of Bhagwan Raghunath Ji and it marked the commencement of the Rath Yatra. A huge crowd had gathered at the occasion to welcome the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister walked to the main attraction with lakhs of other devotees and paid his tributes to Bhagwan Raghunath. The Prime Minister greeted everyone present on the occasion with folded hands and witnessed the divine Rath Yatra along with the grand assembly of the deities in the historic Kullu Dussehra celebrations.
