During the 2014 general elections campaigning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wooed the business fraternity in India and abroad with his pitch for ‘achhe din’ and ‘development’.

But, prominent business personalities such as RBI chief Raghuram Rajan and Narayan Murthy had recently emphasised the importance of maintaining communal harmony in the face of alleged growing intolerance in the country.

A report published by the New-york headquartered credits rating agency Moody’s on Friday cautioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he risked losing his “domestic and global credibility” if BJP controversialists were not reined in.

The advice came on a day leading seer the Shankaracharya of Kanchi appealed for Hindu-Muslim unity, while Tamil Nadu police arrested a Left-leaning folk singer and slapped sedition charges against him for allegedly insulting chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
