Congress leader Sam Pitroda said, ‘proud’ of the honor PM Modi got in America

Washington: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to the US on an official state visit, Congress leader Sam Pitroda said the prime minister of the world’s most populous country deserves respect everywhere and he is “proud” of it. Pitroda, president of the Indian Overseas Congress, is currently accompanying Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on his six-day three-city US tour.

While Gandhi has focused her alternative vision of India against the ruling BJP and has been highly critical of the government led by Prime Minister Modi, she has supported the ruling party’s foreign policy on issues such as the war in Ukraine and China.

“He (Gandhi) knows that we (India) are doing something right, we are all for it. And you see, somebody told me that, the Indian Prime Minister is getting a lot of welcome. And I said I am happy. “It is because after all he is also my prime minister. But make no mistake. He is being welcomed because he is the prime minister of India. An interview.”

Senior Congress leader Pitroda said, “A prime minister of a country of 1.5 billion people deserves respect everywhere. And I am proud of it. I am not negative about it.” President Joe Biden will host Prime Minister Modi on June 22 for an official state visit to the United States, which will also include a state dinner. “But you see, they twist every message. Now this is not a democracy. Have some respect for other human beings. You will send 50 people following you on social media with lies,” he said. Said.

“And one of the lies was that this whole visit (of Gandhi) was sponsored by Muslims. What is this? Even if it is sponsored, let’s say worst case. I mean, they are citizens of India. What are you talking about? First of all, they have nothing to do with it. The entire trip has been arranged by the Indian Overseas Congress. I have personally supervised every programme,” he said, adding there were around 17 programs in total.

Pitroda said that the ongoing visit of Rahul Gandhi has created hope and enthusiasm in America. Pitroda said, “Both of us (he and Gandhi) are convinced that the message has to go to the world leaders today. The world leaders are not aware of the reality and its implications.” “For example, in a big meeting we had today in private, we told them that the periodic table has been removed from the school curriculum. They said it is not possible.

I said, how do you know that? And the theory of evolution has been removed. And they were shocked. He said, how can you be a scientific nation when all these NRIs are running multi-billion dollar companies and the periodic table has now been removed from their country? What will happen to the next generation of people?” Pitroda said.

Pitroda said Gandhi received an overwhelming response. People are all excited, they are very excited. We have created hope and people are asking us what can I do? How can I help you? So, I am now telling them that see, you can help us in many ways.

Responding to a question, Pitroda said that if Indian democracy goes on the wrong path, the world will pay the price. Looks like people have to understand. It does not mean that we are asking people to come and fix our democracy. No, we’re the ones to fix it. But you better be aware of it as it will have implications for you. This will have implications for India. I mean, not only in India but in the world,” he said.
