Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to the US tech hub Silicon Valley and he will take questions from some of Facebook’s 1.5 billion users at a town hall.
Along with Facebook, Modi will also visit Google headquarters and later address an event at the San Jose Convention Center that 18,000 people are expected to attend.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Modi’s visit on his Facebook page earlier this month and invited users to post questions. More than 37,000 comments were made in reply, with questions ranging from those about Internet expansion in India, unemployment rates and calls for Modi to address his human rights record.
Zuckerberg also changed his Facebook profile image to show his support to Digital India. Other Facebook users can also use a temporary profile picture to “Support Digital India.” Modi also responded to Zuckerberg’s gesture by updating his own Facebook profile image.
