While Modi has completed nearly 4 years of his 5-year term as PM of India, many believe that he has inflicted such a damage to the country that now it will be extremely difficult for it to recover from the ruins.

According to Rahul Gandhi, he discussed a range of issues with Macron. These included democratic systems of governance and fake news in the current political environment.
“I look forward to building on this meeting and to collaborating with him on global challenges such as Climate Change,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

These days, Rahul Gandhi leaves no stone unturned to meet the visiting dignitaries, assuming that he will be the next PM of India after the Lok Sabha election of 2019.
Moreover, most foreign heads of states have scant respect for the current PM Narendra Modi who is not quite educated and does not possess knowledge about any modern subject.
Even when Modi reads the speeches written for him by others, it’s difficult to make heads or tails of his meaningless utterances as he is uneducated and speaks in broken English.
In fact, educated Indians believe that Modi should never be sent on any foreign trip and should not be allowed to meet foreign leaders because with his naivety he is giving a bad name to India.
Modi tries to overcome his intellectual weaknesses with uncivilized gestures such as giving forced hugs to foreign leaders who in fact understand that during the past 4 years of his rule Modi has brought India to a brink of disaster.
Today, unemployment is at its peak in India and corruption is rampant in all spheres of activity. The global anti-corruption organization Transparency International has lowered India’s rank from last year’s position of 79 to 81 this year.
Similarly, India has plummeted to 42nd position losing 10 notches on the latest Economist Intelligence Unit‘s (EIU) annual Global Democracy Index 2017.
Last week, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein voiced his concerns about the increasing human rights violations in India.
Zeid said that he is increasingly disturbed by discrimination and violence directed at minorities, including Dalits and other scheduled castes, and religious minorities such as Muslims in India.
While Modi has completed nearly 4 years of his 5-year term as PM of India, many believe that he has inflicted such a damage to the country that now it will be extremely difficult for it to recover from the ruins. In the remaining about a year of Modi government, India will fall in the graveyard of those poor countries that have almost gone extinct.
Although Congress party is virtually dead and losing in almost all the state elections, Rahul Gandhi is fighting a losing battle by positioning himself as an opposition leader in front of the foreign leaders. These gimmicks will not help Congress defeat Modi and his party BJP in the Lok Sabha or most state elections.
