New Delhi-A group of 40 Indian Diaspora youth called on the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Kiren Rijiju . The participants from eight countries are in India as part of the 25-day visit under the 49th Know India Programme , being organised by the Ministry of External Affairs in partnership with Andhra Pradesh Government. Interacting with the participants, Shri Rijiju said the Indian Diaspora should act as ambassadors of Indias growth story and spread the good word about their experience in India upon their return. Government recognizes the importance of the Indian Diaspora and has a well laid down policy for engaging with the Diaspora community. Our Diaspora community has been an important partner in Indias development. Over the course of your visit across India, you must have seen the development happening across the country, he said.
