Amit Shah praises PM’s steps in fight against Covid-19

New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) Union Home Minister Amit Shah here on Thursday lauded the steps taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and simultaneously helping the world community.

In a tweet, Shah said “truth is evident”, every Indian was feeling safe and trusting Modi’s leadership.

“The entire world is praising Modi, the way he is handling Covid-19 global pandemic and taking care of Indians and helping the world community in such challenging times,” Shah tweeted.

Shah also referred to a survey by a US-based research firm of world leaders and their performances during the Covid-19 outbreak and claimed Modi was ahead of Donald Trump, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron in approval ratings in their respective countries.

“Modi has consistently stayed above the 50-point mark, way ahead of other global leaders. By April 13, he was nearing the global high of 75,” Shah said.

The survey conducted by Morning Consult comprised 447 daily interviews per non-US leader (7,039 for Trump) between January 1 and April 14. It’s not clear if the survey and its results are endorsed by the leaders of other nations, or if those surveyed were asked about leaders of countries other than their own.

On Wednesday, Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates lauded Modi’s efforts to combat coronavirus. Gates said he was glad that the Indian government tapped its exceptional digital capabilities to formulate responses to Covid-19.

Earlier this month, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus had lauded Modi’s steps to help the poor during the nationwide lockdown.
