More than 450 years ago, French seer Nostradamus predicted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will rule India from 2014 to 2026, says Union minister Kiren Rijiju.

“French prophet Nostradamus wrote that from 2014 to 2026, a man will lead India, whom initially, people will hate but after that people will love him so much that he will be engaged in changing the country’s plight and direction. This was predicted in the year 1555,” the minister of state for home posted on Facebook.

Rijiju, the member of Parliament from Arunachal (West), cited some numbers as ‘Amazing Facts’, though it’s not clear what is the link between the numbers and Nostradamus’s supposed prediction, if any.

“A middle aged superpower administrator will bring golden age not only in India but on the entire world. Under his leadership India will not only just become the Global Master, but many countries will also come into the shelter of India,” Rijiju posted, apparently quoting Nostradamus.

The minister told HT he read about the predictions in a translated version of Nostradamus’s works.

Many belive the seer from the 16th century predicted the French revolution (1789), nuclear bomb explosions in Japan (1945) and the 9/11 attacks in the US (2001).
