Modi is Gods gift to India: Venkaiah

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at the centre of some very flowery expressions of flattery from Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on the concluding day of the BJP national executive. Mr. Naidu, who moved the political resolution, called him "God's gift to India" and a "messiah of the poor." Going further, he said he was the "Modifier of developing India" which formed the acronym, MODI.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity has risen to a new level. His statue will now be unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London," he said. "Mr. Modi is seen as the leader of the largest democracy on the global scale. With over 18 million Twitter followers and 32 million Facebook likes."

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley did not refer to this praise by Mr. Naidu in his briefing about the political resolution, and Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he "hadn't heard Venkaiahji" on the matter to agree or disagree with him.
