World Amazed By India’s Achievements, Previous Govts Didn’t Have Faith In Capabilities: PM

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday that India’s achievements are no longer a source of surprise for the world, but rather a new normal that nations now recognise the benefits of aligning with. Speaking at a summit hosted by the TV9 News Network, PM Modi remarked that earlier the world used to be surprised to see India has done something but it is no longer so and it has become a new normal for the world. Growing trust in India has become the biggest recognition for India, PM added.
According to PTI, PM Modi took a jibe at the previous governments, saying, “Those in power till 10 years ago did not have any faith in India’s capabilities. It is very difficult to get victory with a mind that has accepted defeat”, PM Modi said, as quoted by news agency PTI.

In reference to his prior remarks citing a speech by first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, PM further added, “They were the people who called Indians lazy. If there is hopelessness in those in power, how can they inspire hope among the people. We have brought the country out of that era of hopelessness. Now, decisions are taken fast and those decisions are also implemented at a fast speed”.
