PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday purchased a Madhubani painting using a RuPay card during his visit to the Indian Heritage Centre in Singapore. Modi received a rapturous welcome on his arrival at the centre, which traces the journey of Indian community in the Southeast Asian region.

“Commendable efforts by the Indian Heritage Centre to bring Singapore and India even closer. Using a RuPay card, I bought a splendid Madhubani painting,” Modi tweeted.
Madhubani painting (or Mithila art) is practiced in the Mithila region of India and Nepal. Modi had launched three Indian mobile payment apps -- BHIM, RuPay and SBI -- in Singapore on Thursday, saying the international launch of these apps reflect Digital India.
