Citing the developments and progress, Chowdhury said “Once we had seen politics on caste and religion. But when PM Modi ji took the responsibility of the entire country, the politics was ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Bikas, Sabka Biswas and Sabka Prayas’.

“Today, India in every field- GDP, foreign friendship, internal security of the country, politics, etc. PM Modi ji is showing direction in every field. There is no corruption in the last eight years of Modi-led government, no allegations have been labelled against any MLA, minister or central leaders. Rising from the politics of caste, creed and religion, development, growth, nationalism and unity are the main agendas of politics in India at present. The people who were left backward in the society who were only meant for vote-bank politics were removed and were given all kinds of benefits irrespective of any political colour by Prime Minister Modi and his cabinet members.”

The per capita income was 89,000 per annum before 2014 and now, at the end of 8 years of Modi-led government, it stands at Rs 1.50 lakh per annum. The foreign reserves in 2104 was 300 Billion US Dollar and now, it is 600 Billion US Dollar which is about Rs 42,000 lakh crore is deposited in India at present.
