Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called India a ray of hope in the world economy as he asserted that his government was committed to transform the lives of the poor and villages.
Addressing a farmers’ rally in Belagavi in Karnataka, he also said the Opposition spoke of several issues but there was not an allegation of corruption against his government ever since he has been serving as “pradhan sevak”.
“Today, it is agreed that if there is a ray of hope in the world economy, it is India,” Modi said at the rally organised as part of BJP’s nationwide outreach to farmers.
He cited ratings by various agencies and international institutions such as World Bank and IMF to buttress his point on India offering a “ray of hope”.
“In the whole world, the economy is wavering. Even those countries who say they are experts are going through economic problems,” he said, adding that in spite of the disturbing environment of slowdown, India is making rapid strides in growth. On corruption, Modi said when his government assumed office, the nation was tired of corruption.
