Tendency to tarnish India’s image must be shunned: PM Narendra Modi | India News – Times of India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday targeted naysayers saying there is a tendency to tarnish India’s image, both within the country and internationally, and exhorted non-state actors to make an effort to change this “perception-building” while conveying the correct picture of the country to the world.
Launching the “Azadi Ke Amrit Mahotsav se Swarnim Bharat Ke Ore” at a gathering of Brahma Kumaris, the PM said: “We cannot get away from this by saying that this is just politics. This is not politics, this is the question of our country. Today, when we are celebrating ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, it is also our responsibility that the world should know India properly.”
The PM said organisations like the Brahma Kumaris, which have international presence, should convey the correct picture of India to the people of other countries and tell the truth about the rumours being spread about India. He said Brahma Kumaris can invite at least 500 people from foreign countries every year from its international chapters to come to India and learn about the country.
Others who joined the event virtually included Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Rajasthan governor Kalraj Mishra and CM Ashok Gehlot, besides Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel. Modi said that the programme by Brahma Kumaris in the “Azadi Ke Amrit Mahotsav” celebrations exemplifies the feeling, spirit and inspiration for a golden India. He said there is no difference between personal aspirations and successes on the one hand and national aspirations and successes on the other.
