Drawing a comparison between the NDA and UPA governments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that NDA is a stable government and brought stability to policymaking and governance. "For decades, there were coalition governments and an atmosphere of uncertainty if they can perform or not. Due to that, people in the world were sceptical about the country.
