Ministers Malsha Shareef, Mariyam Shiuna, and Abdulla Mahzoom Majid of the Maldives were suspended for insulting Prime Minister Modi. Administrator of Lakshadweep Praful Patel stated on Monday that India’s honour had been called into question by the three Maldivian deputy ministers’ disparaging comments about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to Patel, such an insult will never be accepted in India. He expressed his gratitude to the Indian populace for supporting Prime Minister Modi, Patel responded that the ministers who made the comments have received disciplinary action when questioned about the call for a public apology from the Maldives government. The administrator declared that the ministers had received consequences for their behavioral, demonstrating that India will not put up with any slight to its prime minister. He stated that India had responded to the Maldives appropriately, with everyone from movie stars to common people showing support.
After the prime minister shared photos of his visit to the union territory, Male suspended Abdulla Mahzoom Majid, Malsha Shareef, and Mariyam Shiuna for their divisive remarks against him. Boycott Maldives became a trend on social media in response to the statement, which caused a significant outcry. In a show of support for the Maldives, EaseMyTrip chose to revoke all reservations for flights there.
The Mohammad Muizzu government took action after New Delhi made it apparent that the ministers’ comments were inappropriate and out of line. The ministers’ comments were described as “personal opinions” in a statement released by the Maldives government, which distanced itself from them, Ibrahim Shaheeb, the high commissioner of the Maldives, was called to the ministry of external affairs on Monday. He was informed that the president of the Maldives, Muizzu, had the responsibility to mend the bilateral relationship as the island nation had damaged it. He was informed that the three junior ministers ought to be fired rather than merely placed on leave.
“Lakshadweep is a topic of discussion worldwide”
According to Patel, travellers from all over the world have indicated a desire to visit Lakshadweep in the hopes that it will significantly strengthen the local economy and create job opportunities for residents. “Lakshadweep’s natural beauty offers countless opportunities for the tourism industry to grow. Adding more rooms is one of the many projects the administration has started. A large airport will shortly be built on the islands.
In addition to being the administrator of the Union of Teachers of Dadra and Naga Haveli as well as Daman and Diu, Patel expressed regret over the improper development of Lakshadweep and the underwhelming quality of previous works that did not live up to public expectations. “After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit, Lakshadweep is being discussed not just in India but all over the world,” Patel stated.
