Australian MPs are overjoyed to play host to Narendra Modi. Labor Senator from Tasmania Lisa Singh said Modi's speech in Hindi would mean he was bringing in respect, culture and strengths of India to Australia.

"Addressing our parliament is incredibly dignified moment. I don't mind which language he addresses our Parliament," she said.

She added that if his speech in Hindi meant more respect to the Indian diaspora, then he sould do so.
