Ambani, Mittal bat for Modi as PM

Ambani, Mittal bat for Modi as PM

Corporate honchos Anil Ambani and Sunil Bharti Mittal have showered high praise on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and termed his leadership as 'national level' material.

Meanwhile, Modi announced that 8,500 MoUs, with proposed investments of over Rs 12-lakh crore (Rs 12 trillion), were inked during the two-day Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit.

He also said the next summit will be held on January 12-13, 2011.


Speaking at the valedictory session of the Fourth Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit, Ambani said, "Narendrabhai has done good for Gujarat and what will happen if he leads the nation."

"Gujarat has seen progress in all the fields under his leadership. Now, imagine what will happen to the nation if he leads the nation," he said and added, "Person like him should be the next leader of the country."

Recalling his father, the late Dhirubhai, Anil said that Dhirubhai used to say "Modi lambi race ka ghoda hai (Modi will go a long way)."

Similarly, Bharti chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal also lavished high praise on Modi and his leadership. "Modi has a charismatic personality and this has attracted many companies to Gujarat."

"I have had the opportunity to observe him closely during work and I must say that we run only companies and earn money but if there is one person who can run not only a company, a sector, but a whole nation as a CEO, it's Narendra Modi."

Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata has always held that Gujarat is an ideal place to invest in for entrepreneurs because of the industrial, entrepreneurial and political climate in the state.

In just two days of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit, the state managed to get investment commitments worth Rs 12 lakh crore.

The Tata Group has already invested heavily in the state and with its Nano car plant coming up at Sanand, the industrial powerhouse is poised to create thousands of jobs in the state as well.


The sectors which attracted major investments in Gujarat during the mega event included energy (Rs 3.82 lakh crore), urban development (Rs 1.02 lakh crore), chemicals and petrochemicals (Rs 57,000 crore).

On the last day of VGGIS, MoUs were inked in the sectors like chemicals and petrochemicals, agri-business, food processing, textiles, environment, social sector, urban development, auto, engineering and small and medium enterprises.

Apart from the many Indian companies, a lot of foreign companies too have evinced interest in investing in Gujarat. The big ones among these are from Japan and Korea.

Meanwhile Sri Lanka and Gujarat government have signed a memorandum of understanding and will form a working group to promote tourism, Sri Lankan Tourism Minister Milinda Moragoda said in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Amolo Odinga, who was in Gujarat to attend the summit, too was keen to invest in the state.



From Rediff
The Vibrant Gujarat summit is over.

In this economy, all these big industrial houses signed big MoU's worth Rs 12-lakh crore (Rs 12 trillion). Which CM has done this EVER in the history of India?
Which CM ever brought Ratan Tata, K. Birla, Sunil Mittal, Mukesh and Anil Ambani, KV Kamath plus many more on one stage?


None other than Narendra Modi.


And freakin kaangressi bhadwe are crying foul for this too.

Ahmedabad/New Delhi: If India Inc had its way, Narendra Modi might well be the country's next prime minister. A day after Tata Sons chairman Ratan Tata hugged the Gujarat chief minister and showered praise on his leadership, holding Modi and his state up as an example for the rest of the country, corporate bigwigs Anil Ambani and Sunil Bharti Mittal added their voice to the growing chorus.

As octogenarians Lal Krishna Advani and Bhairon Singh Shekhawat jockey for the position of BJP's prime ministerial candidate, Modi, 58, is suddenly emerging as a third option, something that was unthinkable even for BJP politicians a couple of years ago, thanks to the taint of the Gujarat riots of 2002.

Speaking at Tuesday's valedictory session of the fourth Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit, Ambani said, "Narendrabhai has done good for Gujarat. Gujarat has seen progress in all fields under his leadership. Now imagine what will happen to the nation if he leads the nation. A person like him should be the next leader of the country."
Ambani recalled that his father, the late Dhirubhai Ambani, used to say that "Modi lambi race ka ghoda hai (Modi will go a long way)."

Mittal also lavished praise on Modi and his leadership. "Modi has a magnetic personality, which has attracted several companies to the state. I have had the opportunity to observe him closely during work and I must say that we run only companies and earn money, but if there is one person who can run not only a company ora sector, but a whole nation as CEO, it's Narendra Modi."

The plaudits have come as a blow to the BJP, which has just launched a fresh campaign to popularise the idea of 'Advani for PM'. Senior party leaders refused to entertain questions on the subject on Wednesday.

The Congress mocked Modi's track record, calling the claim of 'vibrant Gujarat' a myth. "It takes my mind back to 1933 when a certain [Adolf Hitler] was hailed by captains ofindustry," said party spokesman Manish Tewari. "Our industrialists ought to be a bit more careful in showering praise on a man whose entire edifice rests on corpses."
