Britain-based businessman and philanthropist Lord Swaraj Paul praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his efforts to eradicate corruption in the country. The NRI industrialist said that PM Modi has successfully managed to put the fear of law in the minds of the corrupt people. Paul, who is also the Chairman of Caparo Group which has over 20 manufacturing units in India, further said that PM Modi is very committed and he is very clear where he wants to take the country.
“The Prime Minister has managed to put the fear of law in the minds of corrupt people,” PTI quoted Paul saying last evening. Speaking about PM Modi’s demonetisation drive, he said, “People have come to believe it is a serious effort and a lot of black money has been unearthed. Now fear of getting involved in black money has increased a lot. People have started realising the consequences of indulging in black money.”
Paul had recently visited the country and met PM Modi along with President Pranab Mukherjee and other ministers. He believes that there is a sense of optimism and progress in the country these days.
