Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hailed Mauritius for enriching Hindi literature through its contribution and said the language has occupied a special place in the world.
On the second leg of his three—nation visit, Modi wished the people of Mauritius on behalf of nearly 125 crore Indians on the occasion of the country’s National Day.
Modi laid the foundation stone for the construction of a World Hindi Secretariat building at Port Louis where he spoke highly about the uniqueness of the Hindi language.
The national day of Mauritius is celebrated every year on March 12. This day was selected as a tribute to Gandhiji as he had launched the famous Dandi March.
