As saffron surge sweeps through most parts of the country, reactions pour in congratulating BJP-led NDA. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi all set to retain power, the bigwigs in the corporate sector have also expressed their opinion on the microblogging site Twitter. Most of the business honchos have talked about the new government getting an opportunity to complete the unfinished agenda during the next five years. They have also said that the economy may further bloom under a stable government. Here is how top shots of India’s corporate world reacted:
Time for transformation of India. Time for deep reform. I dream of us as a global superpower in my lifetime. Heartiest congratulations to @narendramodi , the BJP, and the NDA.
