Ivanka Trump praises Modi for uplifting 130 million Indians from poverty, Congress differs Oneindia
Adviser to the US President Ivanka Trump while inaugurating the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 in Hyderabad praised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for uplifting 130 million Indians from poverty. Meanwhile this praise of Modi has not gone down well with the Congress party. Senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram contested the view of the daughter of the American President on the entire subject. Disagreeing with her statement, Chidambaram stated that Ivanka was alluding to the period of 2004 to 2014 of the UPA regime headed by the Congress when she said that India had lifted 130 million people out of poverty.
