New Delhi, Sept.29 (ANI): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stop going to individual companies for foreign help and investment, and instead concentrate on creating suitable investment conditions.
“There should be a critical analysis of the Prime Minister’s visit so as to find out whether it is giving any benefit to the nation or not. We (AAP) are of the view that this US visit of the Prime Minister was misplaced at the level of policies,” AAP leader Ashutosh told ANI.
“Suitable conditions should be made in the country so that the foreign companies are compelled to come and invest. It never looks good to see the Prime Minister going to individual companies and telling them to invest,” he added.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also criticised Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the United States, asking what the country has achieved from these foreign trips so far.
“PM Modi’s US trip ends. Time to ponder what has country achieved from his foreign trips so far? Does it suit the stature of an Indian PM to visit individual cos seeking investments? (sic)” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
“For instance, Chinese first built China and then all corporate giants vied to invest in China. So, lets first Make India. If we make India strong, investments will come at our terms, else investors will dictate terms,” he added.
During his visit to the United States, Prime Minister Modi met various tech giants and leaders, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and many others. (ANI)
