New Delhi: Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda on Friday dubbed Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “guiding statesman”, saying the world looks up to him along with the Presidents of the United States and Russia.
“Unlike in the past, the world today looks towards Modi along with the US or Russian President as a guiding statesman,” Nadda said while addressing the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party’s National Executive meeting here.
“The Prime Minister has an unflinching commitment towards social programmes of yoga, ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ and ‘Swachh Bharat’,” Nadda said.
The minister said the BJP is “lucky to have a clear and confident national leadership and devoted workers at the grass roots”.
“The political climate is favourable for us and the ‘niyat’ and ‘neeti’ (intentions and policies) of our leadership is committed towards public welfare,” the BJP leader added.
Nadda said the central government is working for the development of both rural and urban India.
“Infrastructure is being strengthened to take the fruits of development to all. While the Goods and Services Tax will better the trading atmosphere, industrial growth is seeing new heights thanks to ‘Make in India’ initiative of the government,” he added.
