Modi is going to become PM again, is very popular: American Congressman

Washington, March 13 (Language) A US Congress member has described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a popular leader and expressed confidence that he will be re-elected in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

“Prime Minister Modi is incredibly popular. I was just there. I actually had lunch with Prime Minister Modi and several other Congressmen, and really saw his popularity beyond party lines. I think someone is about 70 percent popular. He is going to be prime minister again,” Rich McCormick, a Republican congressman from Georgia, told PTI in an interview.

“To see his progressive outlook on the economy, on development, on goodwill towards all people, to see his application and positivity to the diaspora across the world is going to impact the global economy, their strategic relations. I look forward to his impact in a very positive way,” he said in response to a question.

He said, under the leadership of Modi, India’s economy is growing at four to eight percent per year. “If you look at their willingness to work with other countries now, I would say, I would put a caveat in there, sometimes there is a little bit of protectionism that a lot of the characters do. They’ve kind of copied some of the things that China has done. “They stand to gain incredible benefits moving forward as businesses look to enter the expanding market in India,” McCormick said.

“We just have to make sure that we do it in a way that both countries understand when we share technologies that both countries trust. The good news is that we don’t see an aggressive stance As we see in China. In fact, we see with India an incredibly important strategic and tactical ally to oppose countries like China, who are autocratic, who believe in Marxist theology,” he said .

“We need to ensure that we develop that relationship where there is true trust, so that we continue to feel that India is honest. They are not trying to steal our technologies; They are trying to share them. It’s OK to use our economic leverage to do this, and as long as we’re having an honest conversation, we can have a great conversation in the future,” McCormick said.

McCormick, a distinguished veteran and emergency room physician, represents Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which is home to a large Indian American population. He serves on the House Committee on Armed Services and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. PTI LKJ MNK MNK MNK
