India's influence on the international stage is increasing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday.
"It is because of the growing reputation and trust for India, Indians living abroad feel proud. When slogans like 'abki baar Trump sarkar' (Trump government this time) and 'abki baar Cameron sarkar' (Cameron government this time) echo, India's might is being accepted," Modi said while addressing the inaugural session of the Hindustan Times Summit.
He was referring to the campaigns of former UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who used the slogan "phir ek baar Cameron sarkar" (Gameron government once again) to woo Indian origin voters in 2015 elections, and US President Donald Trump's election campaign in 2016, inspired by the 2014 Lok Sabha election slogan "Abki baar Modi Sarkar".
"Where is India standing today, you know it well. Big or small, all countries are walking along with India, our influence on the international stage is increasing. We don't have to stop now, we have to keep moving forward," Modi said.
