Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to Kerala. During his stay in the state, he will commission several projects worth more than Rs 3,200 crore in Kerala.
Today, at 10:30 AM, the Prime Minister flagged down the Vande Bharat Express train from Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station.
The creativity of the schoolchildren pleased the prime minister, but a youngster won him over with her amazing singing skills. PM enjoyed the girl’s singing “Ini Varunnoru Thalamurakku” a lot. Prime Minister Modi complimented the girl in Hindi saying, “You sing well and write well too.”
