“The astonishing triumph of Narendra Modi in the greatest election ever held puts India back on the map. “Unlike the UPA leaders, the new PM, who is not tongue- tied, should hold monthly press conferences where he can bring his agenda and actions before the public and carry them with him. He was wonderfully articulate during his campaign; he can do no less now that he is the Prime Minister,” he said.
