Mirzapur (UP), Apr 17: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said India is poised to emerge as a global economic power and the efforts initiated by the Narendra Modi government will start bearing positive results in the days to come.
"India will be a global economic power," he said here at a BJP function. "The world has started recognising India's power. No country can avoid us and they have to keep India in their mind," Singh said while highlighting India's economic importance.
Referring to the initiatives launched under the stewardship of Prime Minister Modi, he said these will start bearing "positive results" in the coming years.
At the event organised to felicitate more than a hundred veteran BJP workers who have been with the party since its Jana Sangh days, Singh, a former BJP National President, also exhorted the party cadre to start preparing in right earnest for the Assembly polls next year in UP.
Praising Apna Dal leader and Mirzapur MP Anupriya Patel, he said, "You people have chosen a very good woman who has talent, which was needed in Parliament.
She is among the few parliamentarians who are good speakers." Singh said Patel, however, cannot do much on her own as they are in the opposition in UP and appealed to locals to back her.
