NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned to the Capital tonight after a five-day visit to the US.       

Modi left Washington yesterday at the end of his visit and returned home on a Special Air India plane after a brief transit halt in Frankfurt.       

Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and a few of his ministerial colleagues were present at the Palam Technical area to receive Modi in a departure from normal practice where ministers no longer line up to see off or receive the Prime Minister during his foreign trips.      

 During the five-day hectic visit, Modi projected India as an attractive investment destination, tried to reset ties with America, addressed the UN General Assembly and enthralled the Indian diaspora.      

At the end of his first visit to the US as Prime Minister, Modi "thanked" America for what he said was a highly "successful and satisfactory trip" to the country.            

Yesterday, Modi and President Barack Obama held a summit meeting in the Oval Office of the White House, at the end of which the two leaders promised to take the India-US relationship to new heights.
