Infact in approx 12 months (less than 1 year to be precise), he has toured almost 15 foreign nations.
What a return? 15 in 12.
This is a very big achievement considering that Modi is that political figure who was denied visa by USA, before he became Indian Prime Minister. As a Chief Minister (CM) of Gujarat, he was not allowed to visit USA maybe this is the reason that he is going everywhere he can before his Prime Ministerial term is over. Going by 15 trips in less than 12 months, I am quite certain that he will achieve his target of completing his world tour much sooner than anyone else can imagine.
Here is a list of countries that he has visited after becoming PM of India – Australia, Bhutan, Brazil, Canada, France, Fiji, Germany, Japan, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Seychelles, Singapore, Sri Lanka, United States
Infact he has visited neighboring country Nepal twice.
He has nearly 8 more trips planned ahead in this year, which includes a trip to China and Russia.
It should not be a big deal, infact a matter of pride as he is putting forward image of a progressive and investment friendly India, on foreign soil. He has for sure attracted a lot of investors interest towards India. His road shows type rallies/show, like the one on Madison square garden, are super-hit with lots of cheerful crowd and media presence. He looks like a superstar, he speaks like a star, his reputation is projected as of a rockstar. He is rocking all the nations he has visited.
But, is India progressing in the same speed as Modi? Maybe, but there is lack of evidence in progression of India as there are hardly any concrete big decisions are taken by the newly formed government of India to showcase it’s one year achievement.
So, what is Modi doing other than going on foreign trips?
To know this, we have to wait for 26th May, 2015, when his government will complete one year and maybe then, they will prepare a list of achievements to broadcast over the Indian Media.
Till then have a safe journey…
