He told the Indian community in Qatar that they are never disconnected from India. He said India’s image has been enhanced globally, and there is tremendous enthusiasm towards India across the world. He added that this change is due to the 125 crore people of India.
“Global agencies are in agreement that India is today the world’s fastest growing major economy,” Modi said, adding that 7.9 per cent GDP growth has been achieved in the last quarter, despite the global slowdown.
