Noted film, theatre and TV star Kiron Kher on a courtesy call of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today did not conceal her awe and astonishment at the state's extra-ordinary progress.
Although it was her first meeting with Modi, she did not mince words in the praise of Mr. Modi either, about his political will, pro-people policies, his style of functioning, his commitment to the development of the state and his capacity to inspire the people, instead of playing with the vote bank politics.
She was impressed by the state's infrastructure facilities, water management, women's empowerment, girl's education campaign and other successes. She wished other leaders take inspiration from Mr. Modi's policies, intent and actions. She said that in case comparatively other backward states follow the Gujarat model the nation is sure to progress fast.
Referring to some of Mr. Modi's certain unpopular decisions, Ms Kher said, it could have been taken only by a person who is on the path to righteousness.
