Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) in Goa on Thursday criticsed Congress party for suggesting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name should be sent for Guinness Book of Records for his foreign trips.
Addressing a press conference at the party state headquarter in the city, Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) Goa unit spokespersons Premanand Mahambarey and Dattaprasad Naik said,''It was very childish that one of Goa Congress party spokespersons issued a press statement that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name should be sent for his foreign trip for Guinness book of world record.''
''As many as 7.25 crore toilets have been constructed in the last four years, 1.15 lakh villages has been connected by optical fibre network, 29.83 crore Jan Dhan Accounts have been opened, 3.66 lakh crore has been directly transferred to the account of the beneficiaries towards 431 different schemes in the last four years and number of tax payers stood at 6.84 crore in the year 2017-18 which is 81 per cent more than what was under UPA (United Progressive Alliance) regime. All this was possible only because of Prime Minister travelled across the world and developed very good relations with most of the country around the globe,'' they said.
''Thirty to 40,000 people are coming to receive the Prime Minister during his overseas visits. This is the love of Indian residents abroad towards our beloved Prime Minister. World's largest mobile factory Samsung was opened in Noida a couple of days back. This is the result of Prime Minister's visits,'' they added.
''We would like to remind entire Congress party that just yesterday India became sixth largest economy in the world, overcoming powerful countries like France, Brazil, Italy, Canada etc,'' they said. (UNI)
