PM Modi said that in the last 3 days I spoke to Joe Biden on many issues. I speak from experience that Biden is a seasoned veteran leader. Now the H-1B visa will be renewed in America itself. You don’t need to go out for this. Just like a sweet dish after a meal, the conversation with you was like a sweet dish, which I am going to eat.
The biggest reason for the progress being made in India is the confidence of India, the confidence of the people of India. Hundreds of years of slavery had robbed us of this confidence. It has now been decided that you will not have to go outside the US to renew your H-1B visa. Now this visa will be renewed while staying in America.
