‘Lacks Facts’: Javadekar on Nikkei Asian Review Article on PM Modi
The Japanese publication said PM Modi may have won the elections but his policies have “paralyzed” India’s economy.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday, 11 March, slammed Japan's Nikkei Asian Review over an article critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's policies, saying it lacked facts.
In its latest cover story, the Japanese publication said Prime Minister Modi might have won the elections but his policies have “paralysed” India’s economy.
The article talks about how the BJP's thumping victories in 2014 and 2019 had not helped in solving India's economic problems.
"Dear @NAR, your column about India is full of anecdotes & conjectures. However it lacks a basic element: FACTS," Javadekar said in a tweet.
"Why don't you educate yourself with the below facts so that you have some credibility the next time you write about India," Javadekar said, referring to a Twitter user's take down of the article contesting several of its assertions.
