Representative Aaron Schock congratulates Shri Modi on his election win on the floor of the House of Representatives in the 1st session of 113th Congress
Running on a platform of economic prosperity for all, and having two terms of proven results behind him, Mr. Modi was elected by a diverse coalition of voters from every religion, education level, and class of society: Mr. Schock
His message cuts across dividing lines and highlights what unites, rather than what divides, those he represents: Representative Schock of Shri Modi
(Shri Modi) has used his position to advocate for sound economic policies that have grown the economy of Gujarat at an astonishing rate over his past two terms: Mr. Schock
The visionary leadership of Shri Narendra Modi that led the Bharatiya Janata Party to a record victory in the 2012 Gujarat Assembly Elections has been universally acknowledged. On Friday 4th January 2013 it was in the USA Congress that Shri Modi’s victory was hailed.
In the 1st session of the 113th Congress on 4th January, Mr. Aaron Schock, the representative from Illinois’ 18th District congratulated Shri Modi’s victory in the Gujarat elections. His speech is available in the Congressional Records (of the 1st session of the 113th Congress). Representative Schock noted the leadership of Shri Modi, the all inclusive development in Gujarat and wished Shri Modi the very best as he enters another term in office.
Representative Schock noted, “I rise today in recognition of the election of Narendra Modi as third term Chief Minister of Gujarat, India. Running on a platform of economic prosperity for all, and having two terms of proven results behind him, Mr. Modi was elected by a diverse coalition of voters from every religion, education level, and class of society.” He added, “His message cuts across dividing lines and highlights what unites, rather than what divides, those he represents.”
The Representative described an election in both India and USA as an affirmation not just of those who the people choose to elect but also the foundation on which societies are built and said, “Mr. Modi understands the great responsibility entrusted to elected officials, and he has used his position to advocate for sound economic policies that have grown the economy of Gujarat at an astonishing rate over his past two terms.”
Mr. Schock affirmed that businesses flock to Gujarat, which has created jobs and raised the standard of living for the people. Noting the universal praise Shri Modi’s leadership has received, Mr. Schock said, “The successes achieved through Mr. Modi’s leadership have drawn praise from his countrymen and observers abroad, as well as from the Indian Diaspora around the world.”
The 113th Congress was constituted after the USA House of Representatives and Senate Elections held in November 2012.
Representative Schock’s strong praise for Shri Modi comes days before the 2013 Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit where top ranking diplomats and high-powered business delegations from over 120 nations will converge in Gujarat. From South America, North America, Africa, Western & Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Middle East, South Asia, the Far East and Australia, there is no region that will not be adequately represented at the biennial summit that will take place from 11th to 13th January. It showcases the triumph and recognition of the Gujarat Model of Development under Shri Modi’s leadership at the international stage.
