Forbes : PM Narendra Modi Among Top 10 of Most Powerful People in World

Not many days past, when India‘s popular Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi won the people choice for “TIME Person of The Yaer” conducted by TIME magazine. Now the famous Forbes Magazine has also appreciated the presence of India’s favourite PM by including him in the list of top 10 powerful people in world. Narendra Madi ranked at 9th position in the list, which is being led by Russian Putin.

Forbes said that India’s “Populist” PM remains hugly popular in his country of 1.3 billion people. To quote the magazine – “India’s populist prime minister remains hugely popular in his country of 1.3 billion people. In November 2016 he unexpectedly announced plans to eliminate India’s two largest bank notes in a bid to reduce money laundering and corruption, creating a nationwide frenzy to quickly swap out the bills. Modi has raised his profile as a global leader in recent years during official visits with Barack Obama and Xi Jinping.┬áHe has also emerged as a key figure in the international effort to tackle climate change, as planetary warming will deeply affect millions of his country’s rural and most vulnerable citizens.” “There are nearly 7.4 billion humans on planet Earth, but these 74 men and women make the world turn. Forbes’ annual ranking of the World’s Most Powerful People identifies one person out of every 100 million whose actions mean the most,” it said further.

It seems that the recent bold step of demonetisation taken by the India’s PM has augmented his popularity. His diplomatic reach to every corner of the world bring him closer to the rank of world leader.
