A day after his return from a foreign tour during which the issue of black money was flagged at the G-20 Summit in Australia, Modi wrote a blog saying that “India placed the issue of existence and repatriation of black money at the forefront of the world community.”
The Prime Minister said he was glad that the world community took note of this “because this is an issue that does not selectively affect one nation.”
Warning that “the menace of black money has the potential to destabilise world peace and harmony,” Modi said, “black money also brings with it terrorism, money laundering and narcotics trade.”
Warning that black money can destabilise world peace and harmony, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that democratic nations have an obligation of collectively fighting this evil as it does not affect any country selectively.
From his recent “eastward travels,” Modi said he noted what the world expects from India. “I saw in their eyes a desire to see India playing its part for a peaceful, stable and developed global community. I also saw a reflection of the energy of our youth, keeping pace with rapid changes across the world,” he said. “I am convinced, with even greater consciousness, of the positive difference India can make on the world stage,” Modi said.
