Manmohan Singh now regrets the harsh words he used for PM Modi in 2014

86-year-old former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was in Indore and he addressed a press conference in the Residency Hotel. He lashed out on BJP government of the state, however, he was apparently soft on PM Modi.

He talked on a range of issues with journalists and portrayed failures of the BJP in Madhya Pradesh. While answering a question, he said he regrets the harsh words he used for PM Modi prior to 2014 Loksabha elections.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh addressed the media reporters in Indore, wherein he talked to The Youth and said that he regrets the “harsh words he used for PM Narendra Modi in 2014”. Before when Narendra Modi took charge as Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh had said that if Modi becomes PM of India, it would be disastrous.

Ever since PM Narendra Modi took charge at the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2014, India’s economy hasn’t faced deflation in this century. It has only got better at around 7% per year. It is highly expected that India’s economy will be one-third bigger than when Modi took charge at the office. That means that there will be a huge change in the world’s largest democracy.

Mr. Modi has been trying to change the atmosphere around India. He wants India to be seen as the next China in terms of economic opportunities as well as the mainstay of democracy. As India’s economy accelerates to good effect and PM Modi has been seeking a distinguished position for the nation in institutions that rule the world.

It is nice to see that India is making its place in the world. PM Modi had pushed through tough economic reforms like demonetisation (rapid removal from circulation of high denomination banknotes) and GST harmonization (the start of a unified national goods and services tax) for the welfare of country’s growth.

In the last three to four years, the vision of India has been changed and the world’s perception towards India is also changing. It’s because of the fact that India is attaining a meteoric rise and its progress is well documented.
