India's fame spreading across globe because of PM Modi, says Amit Shah
New Delhi, May 19: India's fame is spreading across the globe because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday.
Speaking in Gujarati during a gathering commemorating the 125th anniversary of the Delhi Gujarati Samaj, Shah stated that Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Morarji Desai, and Narendra Modi are the four Gujaratis who have made important contributions to India's modern history.
Shah stated that Gandhiji's efforts resulted in independence, Sardar Patel's efforts resulted in unity, Morarji Desai's efforts resulted in the revival of democracy, and Narendra Modi's efforts resulted in India being celebrated around the world.
"These four Gujaratis have achieved great things and they are the pride of the entire nation," said Shah.
The Minister stated that the country has accomplished several things during Prime Minister Modi's nine-year reign.
He stated that when Modi became Prime Minister in 2014, India's economy was ranked 11th in the world, and that after nine years, India's economy is ranked fifth in the world.
According to Shah, several organisations, including the IMF, now consider India's economy as a bright point.
"Under the decisive leadership of Prime Minister Modi, by conducting surgical and air strikes, India gave a message to the world that no one can tamper with India's borders."
Shah went on to say that in a vast country like India, with 130 crore people, the Covid vaccination drive was completed in a smooth manner.
He added that under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, India has become the world's largest mobile producer. "India is third in the field of startups and fourth in terms of renewable energy production."
