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.

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.

I'm happy that for the first time the prime minister of the country is talking about poll reforms. Unlike the previous governments which avoided taking any measure on poll reforms, Prime Minister Modi is being specific and several of his measures are leading towards reforms.

I think so far the government has removed many of the obstacles. We are very pleased. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is opening up India and removing bureaucratic intervention and delays.

On foreign policy, we believe in speaking for the nation rather than on any party. I even tweeted during the speech that I agreed with Modi’s avocation of Buddhism, Ayurveda and yoga as part of India’s offerings to the world. I am very glad that this is part of doctrine of the country.

Mr. Prime Minister you have visited our country in last June. There are many, many, many of us who wish you would have stayed and taken over the leadership of our country... Perhaps this would have been the greatest of India's exports.

We think Mr. Modi can transform India right in front of our eyes. It is unprecedented that he has a single minded focus on economic growth and will root out corruption. I have said to Mr. Modi that we expect him to be the Lee Kuan Yew of India who can transform the country.

When I talk about PM Modi, I talk about somebody who is capable of expanding on a vision, prioritizing how that's going to happen, bringing it down to the teams of who's going to be held accountable, putting groups in healthy competition in terms of direction, the courage to make changes wherein Make in India, in less than a year ago. I have said earlier that India will move from a slow follower to innovation leader around the world…It is the ability of a leader who cares about 1.3 billion people that has the vision to make this inclusion and the personal skills that makes us all proud to partner with this great country.

Mr. Modi built Gujarat as a progressive state and a state that was talked about widely abroad. It was the tremendous zeal of execution of Mr. Modi who built the state and now India.

Demonetisation is over. It was a bold decision and in the long run it will benefit. It will also help the implementation of GST.
