New Uttrakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat has compared PM Narendra Modi to Lord Ram. He was speaking at ‘Netra Kumbh’, an event organised by a social outfit at the Rishikul Government PG Ayurvedic College auditorium on Sunday.
“Today leaders of different countries line up to get their pictures clicked with the Prime Minister. This is in stark contrast to earlier times when no world leader used to bother about our head of state. The situation has changed now because of Narendra Modi. This is a New India that he has created,” Rawat, who visited Haridwar twice since taking charge of the state four days back, said.
Amid slogans of ‘Modi zindabad’, the CM further said, “Just like during earlier times, Lord Ram had done good work for society and so people started considering him as god, similarly, in future, the same thing will happen with our beloved Prime Minister too.”
Rawat reiterated that no RT-PCR report or registration of pilgrims would be required for visiting the mega festival. He, however, added the guidelines issued by the Central government would be followed.
