I'm a fan, says Tesla's Elon Musk on meeting PM Modi

Tesla CEO and Twitter owner Elon Musk met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a four-day State visit to the US and said that he is a fan of him and was honoured to meet him.
Speaking on PM Modi's leadership role in making technology inclusive so that digital infrastructure can be created, he said, "I can say he really wants to do the right thing for India. He wants to be open, he wants to be supportive of new companies, obviously, but at the same time, make sure it accrues to India's advantage, which is obviously that's the job I'm saying. I am a fan of Modi."

Musk divulged plans to visit India soon. Notably, this is the first meeting between PM Modi and Musk after he became the owner of Twitter. PM Modi earlier met Musk in 2015 during a visit to Tesla Motors factory in California.

He said, "I am planning to visit India next year. I am confident that Tesla will be in India and we will do so as soon as humanly possible."
"I would like to thank PM Modi for his support and hopefully, we will be able to announce something in the future," Musk said.
