New Delhi : As dramas and debates over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s one year in office grabs all limelight on national television, NMTV brings to you excerpts of what the International Media and Press is saying on PM Modi’s one year in the most powerful office in the country.
“The most important indicator by which to judge Modi is the economy. And the Indian economy is growing well. Second, inflation has been kept in check.”
“There is much to do. Modi’s mantra for the next 365 days should be less PR and more action, especially at home. He still has the tools and the confidence of the people to be India’s most transformative leader in history.”
- The Economist
“Mr Modi seems to expect he will be in office for more than one term, which would mean having time enough to effect profound change. As India grows, Mr Modi’s concept of leadership should evolve too.”
- The Week
The dejected BJP voters say that “for the first time a genuine right wing liberal government is in office. If it fails, there won’t be another one for at least 30 years”. The Modi government sees “achche din” as a journey, a process. But, will the voters be as patient?
- The New York Times
“Most formidable of all is a problem Mr. Modi has made for himself: outsize expectations that he would sweep away constraints to growth in India, like stringent laws governing labor and land acquisition.”
