 Many NRIs across USA and Canada to join the interaction 

Shri Narendra Modi is the most popular leader of India decisive, visionary and fearless. He has provided all-round development of Gujarat and received acclaims from national and international community: statement by Overseas Friends of BJP

On the morning of Sunday 10th March 2013 at 6:30 AM (IST) Shri Narendra Modi will address the Indian diaspora in a Community Outreach Programme organized by the Overseas Friends of BJP. Talking about the programme, Shri Jayesh Patel, President of the Overseas Friends of BJP pointed that the Community Outreach Programme will be held in Chicago and New Jersey.

The following are the details of the programme:

City Date Time Venue
Chicago 09/03/2013 7:00 PM Central Time Holiday Inn, 3405 Algonquin Road, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008
New Jersey 09/03/2013 8:00 PM Eastern Time TV Asia Auditorium, 76 National Edison Road, NJ 08817

(time and date given as per American time zones)

Shri Narendra Modi will address the gatherings in both the places simultaneously via videoconference. A large number of NRIs are expected to attend the Community Outreach Programmes in both the places. In addition, the event will be watched live across USA and Canada on TV Asia. You can know more about the event HERE.

“Shri Modi is the 4th term Chief Minister of Gujarat…he is the most popular leader of India decisive, visionary and fearless. He has provided all-round development of Gujarat and received acclaims from national and international community” says a statement by the Overseas Friends of BJP. It adds that Shri Modi’s good governance initiatives are becoming a study of emulation for other states and countries across the world. The Overseas Friends of BJP notes the popularity of Shri Modi among the community of Indians overseas.

The organizers of the event include Shri Vijay Jolly (BJP Overseas Affairs In-Charge), President Elect of the Overseas Friends of BJP Shri Chandrakant Patel, the Immediate Past President Shri Adapa Prasad ji among many others.

Shri Narendra Modi is immensely popular outside the shores of India, especially among the diaspora. In May 2012 Shri Modi had addressed NRIs across 12 American cities through videoconference. In a comprehensive speech Shri Modi talked at length about the nature and scope development in Gujarat. The event was attended by record number of people across USA. Later on, in September 2012 Shri Modi addressed ‘Chaalo Gujarat 2012’ a World Gujarati Conference and his speech there was widely appreciated.

The event can be watched LIVE on the website too.

PM witnesses the historic “Commencement of Core Loading” at India’s first indigenous Fast Breeder Reactor (500 MWe) at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu

India’s nuclear power program is aimed to meet the twin goals of energy security and sustainable development

In a historic milestone marking entry into the vital second stage of India’s three stage nuclear program, Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi witnessed today, commencement of “Core Loading” at India’s first indigenous Fast Breeder Reactor (500 MWe) at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister took a tour of the Reactor Vault and the Control Room of the Reactor. He was briefed about the salient features of this reactor.

India has developed comprehensive capabilities spanning the entire spectrum of the nuclear fuel cycle. Government had approved in 2003, the creation of Bhartiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Ltd (BHAVINI) to construct and operate India’s most advanced nuclear reactor-Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR).

In line with the true spirit of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, PFBR has been fully designed and constructed indigenously by BHAVINI with significant contribution from more than 200 Indian industries including MSMEs. Once commissioned, India will only be the second country after Russia to have commercial operating Fast Breeder Reactor.

The Fast Breeder Reactor (FBR) will initially use the Uranium-Plutonium Mixed Oxide (MOX) fuel. The Uranium-238 “blanket” surrounding the fuel core will undergo nuclear transmutation to produce more fuel, thus earning the name ‘Breeder’. The use of Throium-232, which in itself is not a fissile material, as a blanket is also envisaged in this stage. By transmutation, Thorium will create fissile Uranium-233 which will be used as fuel in the third stage. FBR is thus a stepping stone for the third stage of the program paving the way for the eventual full utilization of India’s abundant thorium reserves.

In terms of safety, the PFBR is an advanced third generation reactor with inherent passive safety features ensuring a prompt and safe shut down of the plant in the event of an emergency. Since it uses the spent fuel from the first stage, FBR also offers great advantage in terms of significant reduction in nuclear waste generated, thereby avoiding the need for large geological disposal facilities.

Upon completion of the core loading, the first approach to criticality will be achieved, leading to generation of power subsequently.

Notably, despite the advanced technology involved, both the capital cost and the per unit electricity cost is comparable to other nuclear and conventional power plants.

The growth of the Indian nuclear power program is imperative to meet the twin goals of energy security and sustainable development. As a responsible nuclear power with advanced technology, India remains committed to expand peaceful applications of nuclear technology, both in power and non-power sector, while ensuring the security of nuclear and radiological materials.
