Prime Minister Narendra Modi is facing the flak from the people all over the country, for his recent comments during his diplomatic tour to China. While addressing the Indian community in Shanghai, he had said his year in office had given Indians settled abroad a new pride in the country.

As The Hindu reported, Modi said, “Earlier, you felt ashamed of being born Indian”.

“Now you feel proud to represent the country. Indians abroad had all hoped for a change in government last year.”

The hashtag #ModiInsultsIndia has been trending on twitter, with people condemning Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his narcissistic comments.
Earlier too, in April 2015, Modi was criticized for his statements made in Germany and Canada about the “mess” the earlier government had created out of the country. PTI had reported Anand Sharma, a Congress spokesperson as stating, “He is talking on foreign soil to malign his predecessors and the present opposition. No prime minister of  of India in its history has ever done so”.

Once again with his recent remark in Shanghai, Modi has drawn the censure of not only the opposition, but also the common people across the country, towards him.

The new leader of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is to waive up to $5.3 billion of farm loans, becoming the latest area to offer relief ahead of a national election next year as farmers reel from losses caused by falling crop prices.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party lost the central state to Congress last week dealing Modi his biggest defeat since he took office in 2014 and boosting the opposition ahead of the vote next year.

Congress leader Kamal Nath, who became chief minister of the state on Monday, decided to write off farmers’ loans up to 200,000 rupees, according to a notification.

Protests on the rise

Farmers’ protests have been rising in past months due to the fall in crop prices and a rise in the cost of diesel and fertilizer.

Nearly 3.4 million farmers will benefit from the loan waiver, which is likely to cost between 350 billion rupees ($4.9 billion) to 380 billion rupees ($5.3 billion), Rajesh Rajora, the state’s principal secretary for agriculture, told Reuters.
