The BJP on Thursday hit
back at the Congress for wanting PM Narendra Modi’s name in the Guinness Book of World Records for his 41 foreign trips, saying that he deserves instead to be in the Book of World Records for all the things he has achieved in the past 4 years which previous Congress-led governments couldn’t achieve for 40 years.
Addressing the press, BJP spokesperson Dattaprasad Naik called PM Modi “the third most respected leader in the world” after US President Donald Trump.
Naik also went on to elaborate all the accomplishments of the Modi government over the past 4 years especially development projects across villages and said taxpayers for the last financial year had gone up to 81% more than during the UPA term.
Another party spokesperson Premanand Mhambrey spoke of the economic benefits of the PM’s tours saying, “These tours have brought huge economic benefit to the country and have improved trade for India.”
Mhambrey also called PM Modi’s address at the World Economic Forum in Laos in January this year “an achievement for the nation.”
Mhambrey said that with India overtaking France as the world’s 6th largest economy, people were looking at India with renewed eyes.
“Wherever in the world PM Modi goes, thousands of Indians gather to meet him,” said Mhambrey.
A mention was also made of Dalveer Bhandari’s election to the International Court of Justice.
When asked to comment on the bad state of roads in the state’s capital especially St Inez, Naik said that the roads fell under the jurisdiction of MLA Jennifer Monserrate who was a member of the Opposition, and as such, the ruling party had nothing to do with them.
