In 2000, then Prime Minister of India, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, made an official visit to the United States of America [USA], between the 7th to the 19th of September. As part of his engagement there, he was invited to address a joint session of the US Congress. Prior to him, in 1994, Mr. PV Narasimha Rao, then incumbent Prime Minister of India, too addressed a similar joint session, considered to be a gesture for honouring visiting dignitaries in America. Prime Minister Vajpayee was the only foreign leader to do so during 106th session of the US Congress.
