Member of Parliament from Bengaluru and National president of the Bharatiya Janata Party Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Tejasvi Surya lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday as the “most popular leader in the history of mankind”.
Surya was speaking at a youth conclave organised by the BJYM at Karnavati club in Ahmedabad.
Wishing the Prime Minister on his 71st birthday, Surya said, “It is my great fortune and opportunity to celebrate the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his birthplace. When I arrived at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport today morning, I had goosebumps realising the kind of great leaders and thinkers the land of Gujarat has produced. Our Prime Minister is the most popular democratically elected leader in the history of mankind.”
He added, “And I say this as a fact because in the general elections of 2014 and 2019, the number of Indian voters was much larger than the population of many countries. Our Prime Minister has been in power for the past 20 years in the state and the Centre without a single day of incumbency. No other leader has achieved such a feat in the world (sic).”
