Lavishing praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his efforts to drive economic growth, the Hinduja brothers have asserted that he can be accepted as the “best Prime Minister for the world”. “We feel proud abroad when we say that we are Indians and Mr Modi today can be accepted as the best Prime Minister for the world, and he is doing excellent work,” the London-based pair, who run the global conglomerate Hinduja Group told ET Now.
“The only suggestion would be that his team would also move in the same pace and faster than what Mr Modi wants, because his vision is very good for the country,” they said. “He (PM Modi) has new ideas, he has new thoughts, he has gone internationally to all the countries, he has built up excellent relationships, so the rest is now for the private sector. We have to give some time to see how things will change,” they added.
Since assuming office following a resounding victory in 2014 general elections, the Modi-led government has undertaken a slew of key policies which helped in propelling the economic growth as well as reducing the current account deficit substantially. Some of the flagship initiatives include Make in India, Digital India, Clean India, Skill India, 100 Smart Cities and Startup India.
Earlier this month, Canada-based billionaire Prem Watsa had described Modi as the Lee Kuan Yew of India and hoped that he would be re-elected so that he can continue to transform India.
