As India moves ahead towards becoming Top Three Global economy by 2030, the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji has put India in the driver’s seat of World Economy as it secures an important role in delivering economic growth for the world. India, under Modi ji, has become a major Economic country in the world, eclipsing the dark age of Congress governments when corruption and inefficient governance ruled the roost. Modiji’s nine years of good governance has delivered what six decades of bad governance by Congress failed to deliver for the welfare of the people.”
