India TV Chunav Manch: Union Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar on Wednesday asserted that India's foreign policy has changed in the last ten years under the reign of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Speaking at India TV Chunav Manch, Jaishankar further stated that the central government's stance is very clear on the matter of nation development. 

The minister affirmed that amidst the challenges of the pandemic, doubts were cast on India's ability to handle the crisis. "However, we proved them wrong. Despite concerted efforts to undermine us, there are still people who seek validation by echoing such negativity," he emphasised. 


Jaishankar on G-20 summit's success

Jaishankar highlighted the global admiration for the successful hosting of the G-20 summit, underscoring India's significant contributions to global development. He praised Prime Minister Modi as a revered global leader, emphasising the world's respect for his leadership. The Foreign Minister also lamented ongoing attempts to undermine India's self-assurance, pointing to negative portrayals in Western media and the propagation of unfavourable narratives by certain political factions.

"Today the world has confidence in India's capability. PM Modi's image in the world is that of a strong leader. We now respond to terrorism with surgical strikes. We also have a befitting reply to Uri and Pulwama attacks," Jaishankar told at India TV Chunav Manch. 

On PM Modi's leadership amid wars

During the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, Prime Minister Modi engaged with President Vladimir Putin to ensure the safe evacuation of Indian nationals amid ongoing hostilities, Jaishakar said. Additionally, PM Modi communicated with President Zelenskyy to facilitate the safe return of Indian citizens from Ukraine. Jaishankar noted a similar scenario in Qatar, where Indian nationals were also safely repatriated.
