Pak media praises India 
 
 
ISLAMABAD, 
IN A first, a leading Pakistan daily, ‘The Express Tribune’, lauded India’s expanding global footprint and its growing stature and heft on the world stage under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he has brought India to the point where the nation has begun to cast a wider net of its influence and impact.
The Op-ed column in the leading Pakistan daily further stated that under PM Modi, India’s foreign policy has treaded skilfully and its GDP has grown to over three trillion USD. Calling it ‘monumental progress’, Shahzad Chaudhry, a noted political, security and defence analyst, writing in ‘The Express Tribune’, called India a preferred destination for all investors.
The writer further reiterated that India has, under the chairmanship of PM Modi, established its own domain on the foreign policy front. India is also a big producer of agricultural products and the IT industry, Chaudhry noted in his column, adding that “in agriculture, their yields per acre are comparable to the best in the world and despite being a country of over 1.4 billion people, it remains a relatively steady, coherent and functional polity”.
Citing data, Shahzad Chaudhry, in his piece, said India’s system of governance has withstood the test of time and proved its resilience around fundamentals essential to a resolute democracy.
“Modi has done something to brand India that none before him could manage. Importantly, India does what it feels and to the extent it needs,” he wrote.
