New Delhi, October 20, 2014 ( PTI)  Narendra Modi will be the first India Prime Minister to address special joint session of the Austrailian Parliment  during  his visiit to the country to attend G20 Leader's Summit in Brisbane.   While several Australian lawmakers have expressed their happiness over his trip, the first by an Indian Prime Minister in nearly three decades, there is speculation that he would be delivering his historic address in Hindi like he has done in the past in other parts of the world.

"I think it shows that he is bringing the respect, culture and strengths of India to Australia. And I think it is



important that he makes this journey to our country," said 42-year old Labor Senator from Tasmania Lisa Singh.  "Addressing our Parliament is an incredibly dignified moment. I don't mind which language he addresses it in," said Singh, the first federal Parliamentarian of Indian origin. She said that on her recent visit to India she felt that there was a new feeling of hope across the country with Modi at the helm.

Modi is due to address the special joint sitting of the Australian Parliament after he attends G20 leaders' summit on November 15-16. Other leaders who would also address the special sitting are British Prime Minister David Cameron and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
