As the second visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is less than a month away, the individual registration has already started and is till 31st August. The visit is scheduled to be on 27th September where a grand reception is awaiting Mr Narendra Modi at SAP center in Silicon Valley in San Jose, California. There are 500 different community organizations that are jointly participating in this giant reception for the Indian Prime Minister. There have already more than 40,000 registrations confirmed which are higher by 10,000 when Mr. Modi visited Madison Square Garden in New York earlier. The visit is to attend the 70th session of the UN General Assembly that is held every year.

The main motive behind visiting Silicon Valley by the Indian Prime Minister is to promote his campaign for ‘Digital India’. The individual privacy has become a major concern as raised by more than 100 well-known academics in the United States. The joint statement by them says that Indian Prime Minister is appearing ignorant about the personal privacy – a concern raised by critics in India saying the amount of an individual’s information will invade and might get used in a wrong way by the government machinery. Is this going against the constitutional rights of an Indian citizen is the point of concern.
