PM Narendra Modi’s Davos speech a ‘reason of pride’ for Indians : Amit Shah


BJP National President Shri Amit Shah called Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos a “reason of pride” for all Indians, adding that the country offers opportunities to the entire world, Shri Shah in a series of tweets said Shri Modi has perfectly articulated India’s strengths and aspirations in the multi-conceptual world at Davos. “India offers unique opportunities to the entire world. It offers wealth with wellness, health with wholeness of life, prosperity with peace… India welcomes one & all,” Shri Shah tweeted.

Referring to Shri Modi’s speech at WEF’s opening plenary, he said the prime minister had superbly invoked how Indian culture has always believed in uniting, not dividing. “Our scriptures, written thousands of years ago, speak about ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. We are all united by our shared destinies,” he said.
Citing PM’s remarks on climate change, Shri Amit Shah said it is a potent global challenge. Under Shri Modi’s leadership, India has not only set ambitious targets in this regard but is also taking unprecedented initiatives to achieve them, he added.

Shri Shah said, PM had raised his voice against terrorism at every global forum. At WEF Davos 2018, too, he gave a clarion call to the world, to unite to defeat the menace of terrorism.

The surge of protectionism against globalisation is a challenge every part of the world is facing. The solution to this problem lies in understanding and accepting changing scenarios. Gandhi ji’s example shows India’s inherent open outlook.

India offers unique opportunities to the entire world. It offers wealth with wellness, health with wholeness of life, prosperity with peace… India welcomes one & all!

PM Modi hit all the right buttons in Davos speech,
say top Indian CEOs



The World Economic Forum was the biggest platform for Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to pitch the country as a global investment destination and tell the world that India means business. From the Prime Minister’s strong-but-inclusive pitch at the plenary session of the World Economic Forum 2018, it was clear that he not only wanted the largest gathering of rich and powerful to hear India’s growth story, but also see its blueprint to become the ‘future superpower’, said top CEOs of India.

After his speech at the mega event, the PM met a group of Indian CEOs including Chanda Kochhar, Uday Kotak, Rahul Bajaj, Naresh Goyal, N. Chandrasekaran, Sunil Mittal, Ravi Ruia, Chandrajit Bannerjee and Anand Mahindra. “Together we can! Working hand in hand towards a brighter future for the country Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said with Indian CEOs present at the WEF.”

The motto of my Government is ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. He said real development and growth can be achieved if we all stand together. Red carpet has replaced red tape in India.

In the history of India’s 70 years of independence, we rolled out Goods and services tax –a uniform tax system . We are using technology to increase transparency and accountability.

In India democracy, demography and dynamism are giving shape to development and destiny. Change in India’s ranking is an indicator that the people in India have warmly welcomed the change in policies as the road to a better future for them.

He said India has always contributed toward global peace. Let us create a ‘heaven of freedom’, where there is cooperation and not division, fractures.

Lauding some of the recent economic reforms, which his government did, such as the Goods and Service Tax (GST), Prime Minister Modi said it has made working, travelling and living in India more seamless and plausible, while helping achieve a spike in exports.

“For the first time in the history of independent India, an integrated tax in the country has been implemented, which will increase transparency and accountability,” he added. The Prime Minister mentioned the appreciation given to India in the form of an increase in global ranking by renowned organizations such as Moody’s and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“Change in India’s ranking is an indicator that the people in India have warmly welcomed the change in policies as the road to a better future for them,” he said.

Citing his government’s motto of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ (Development of all), Prime Minister Modi assured that political reforms taken in India are in cognizance of the welfare of the country, and not any particular community.

“In 2014 after 30 years, Indian voters provided complete majority to any political party to form government at the centre. We took the resolution for the development of everyone and not just a specific group,” he said.

“Given all sorts of fractures and cracks in the world, we need to take note of the many directions we have for our shared future,” he opined.

In this regard, India, he said, has been and will continue to be a flag bearer for global peace and stability, and a key contributor to the United Nations’ peacekeeping missions.
