PM warns against forces of encroachment in the world
Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned against the forces of “encroachment” in the world and said the global situation looked more like the 18th century.
Suggesting that the world was divided into the forces of “Vistaarvaad” (expansionism) and “vikasvaad” (developmentalism), the Prime Minister referred to encroachment into nations and “entry into seas”.
However, the Prime Minister did not make any reference to any specific country or countries indulging in this kind of encroachment.
The reference of “entry into seas” in this part of the world could be read as a reference to China, but Mr. Modi himself spoke in general teams.
Addressing a business meeting on Monday, his first day of official meetings, Mr. Modi said a “special management team” would be set up in the Prime Minister’s Office to ensure ease of business and speedy clearances.
The Japanese would be free to include two members from their side in this special management team, the Prime Minister told his audience of top business leaders from India and Japan.
Mr. Modi also promised business leaders that the Government would undertake all legal reforms necessary to make business processes easier.
