This will be Prime Minister Modi’s fourth visit to the US since he assumed office two years ago, but his first State visit. He will also be the fifth Indian PM to address the joint session of Congress, a tradition that dates back to 1824, when Marquis de Lafayette of France spoke in the House chamber.
