New York: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived here on Friday on a five-day US visit, he was greeted with 'Har Har Modi' slogan, heard first during Lok Sabha poll campaign e, by a large group of Indians who had gathered outside his hotel.

The Indians were also carrying placards with messages such as 'We love Modi' 'America loves Modi' 'Indian American loves Modi'.

They were also shouting slogans in support of Prime Minister Modi and were also chanting 'Vande Mataram' and 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai', besides the most largely-shouted 'Har Har Modi' chants.

A special enclosure was made by the local police for these supporters to watch Modi as he came.

Traffic was blocked before his arrival while pedestrians were also asked to take alternate route to cross the hotel lane in the busy Madison avenue area of New York city.
