Unlike ‘Madam’ days, ‘Team Modi’ decides on welfare schemes: Naidu

, 1:20 PM IST

New Delhi: Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday took a dig at the Congress leadership, claiming now “Team Modi decides” on public welfare unlike the days when “Madam decided and PM obeyed”.

“The biggest change Modi government has brought is that we have ended the situation of policy paralysis. Today the PM presides and Team Modi decides on public welfare unlike the days when Madam decided and PM obeyed,” Naidu was quoted as saying in a statement by his party.

He was addressing a ‘Vikas Parv’ programme organised by the BJP in east Delhi to celebrate two years of Narendra Modi government’s rule and its “achievements”.

“At the behest of Congress, Modi was denied US visa 9 times but now the same American people are hailing Narendra Modi as an an icon,” Naidu claimed.

Union Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha said today the world is “eager to invest” in the country that has emerged as the “top” hub for investors.

A large number of BJP leaders including state president Satish Upadhyay, MPs Maheish Girri and Manoj Tiwari, and Delhi in-charge Shyam Jaju were also present.
