Chris Martin Meets PM Modi

Chris Martin Meets PM Modi

After surprising people present at a Hauz Khan cafe with his impromptu performance a night before, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin on Thursday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed how they can support his “Swachh Bharat” and the “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” campaigns.

Martin and Pinto were accompanied by representatives of the Global Poverty Project. They met Modi as a follow-up to last year's Global Citizen Festival in New York City, where the Prime Minister had called for a global movement to end poverty and provide universal sanitation.

Chris Martin also called on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his official residence. The meeting lasted for about 25 minutes, a government official told news agency IANS.  The government official while conforming the meeting said, "Martin met Kejriwal at his official residence. The meeting lasted for about 25-30 minutes."
