By Payal MehtaNew Delhi [India], June 28 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just wrapped up his two nations tour and left for India from Abu Dhabi, after an extremely successful visit to Germany as well as the United Arab Emirates.

"Today's India has come out of the mentality of 'it happens, it runs like this'. Today India takes a pledge to have to do, have to do, and have to do on time," he said.
The Prime Minister highlighted India's growth story and mentioned various initiatives undertaken by the government to further achieve the country's development agenda.
"We Indians are proud of our democracy. Today, we can proudly say that India is the mother of democracy... The diversity of culture, food, clothes, music and traditions makes our democracy vibrant. India has shown that democracy can deliver and has delivered," said PM Modi.
The next big thing on the agenda of PM Modi was the G7 summit. The Prime Minister held various bilateral meetings and participated in 15 engagements at the venue.
