Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “world leader”.

Speaking to reporters in Solapur, around 400 km from here, Fadnavis said although the opposition parties are coming together only to oppose PM Modi, people have faith in him.

Even the US president has said that he is struggling to issue passes for PM Modi’s dinner as they are overwhelmed by the response of the Indian diaspora in the US. Biden even wants to take Modi’s autograph.” Modi is set to visit the US in June and one of the key events during his visit would be the dinner organised at the White House for which tickets are being issued.

Modi’s stature on the global stage has grown significantly, but criticised the opposition parties, alleging that they were pained by his growing popularity.

Fadnavis sarcastically said, “I am glad that Kejriwal is meeting Sharad Pawar. He had once used such words against him (Pawar) that I can not utter here. Similarly, his acidic remarks against Thackeray and Shiv Sena’s commentary against him is widely known. The videos of those days are being circulated again.”
