India is winning the war on human waste...Nearly three years ago, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made one of the boldest comments on public health that I have ever heard from an elected official...I can't think of another time when a national leader has broached such a sensitive topic so frankly and so publicly.

India has done some pretty good reforms which were tough in the beginning but will be right-paced going forward. You have a prime minister who has more vision than the western politicians. He takes drastic actions like demonetization but gets positive feedback in the elections.

The mining industry in India was the most corrupt till a few years ago. There was a time when the face of the promoter decided the allocation or non-allocation of the mine. The auction of coal and non-coal minerals is a testimony of the Modi government's focus on transparency.

India is now the fastest growing major economy in the world — lifting living standards and bringing many out of the misery of poverty — a very significant accomplishment and one that many countries respect.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is taking India from a $2 trillion economy to a $20 trillion economy, and the current government's focus on technology, digitisation and communication is taking India from red tape to red carpet.

I cannot help but mention the way you and your government were supportive towards me and my government during the especially difficult times in the last year. My father Mufti Mohammad Saeed joined hands with you to bring Kashmir out of its troubles.

I would like to place on record my deep admiration for the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, in particular for the bold and courageous reforms that he has taken for the sterling performance of the Indian economy. I believe we can learn much from his leadership.

We are blessed to have a leader who not only understands the countrymen but also understands the world and technology. What impressed me the most was when the prime minister visited the US (at the time Barack Obama was the US President) and at the dinner they only discussed how technology can benefit the poor people and help develop a country.

PM Modi’s decision to ban high-value banknotes as part of efforts to stamp out corruption will have a profound and positive impact on India’s economy...What India has done will be studied (by other countries). There hasn’t been such demonetisation in a country so big.

Under the Prime Minister and his government, India is on the threshold of projecting itself as a new India.

Modi is a reform superstar. He is outperforming all others in the world. In less than three years that he has been in power, he has achieved a lot. He has got GST through, and demonetisation by itself is an amazing achievement. Clearly, there are consequences to these reforms in the short term. It looks for the time being we have a government that is prepared to think and act long term.
