Mark Mobius' praise for PM Modi

Praising PM Narendra Modi, he said, “He (Modi) is moving in the direction of more and more technology and it is amazing. With a very young population, this is a very exciting time for the country. India offers an attractive consumer play, but it's the tech sector that I've been watching closely. Under Modi’s leadership, India’s tech space has moved ahead of many developed countries. If Modi secures a third term in office, I can only imagine a further push for digitalisation, which would be great for India.”
