Amritsar, May 11 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate and senior leader Lal Krishna Advani on Monday said that the 21st century will belong to India even though in the last century it belonged to the United States, United Kingdom or Russia.
Addressing a big rally in support of Navjot Sigh Sidhu, the cricketer-turned-politician, here on Monday, Advani said that India could become a super power in this century.

And, if the NDA govt. would again return to power, the next century would belong to India.
" I can say through my experience that even though the 20th century belonged to America, England or Russia, our country and our people have enough capability. And I am sure that the present 21st century will belong tondia," said Lal Krishna Advani
