Dr.Patra who is touring Australian cities to celebrate the Modi-led NDA government’s three years in power was answering to Melbourne-based SAT (South Asia Times) question about the NDTV episode where he alleged NDTV ‘agenda’ and was asked to leave the live discussion by the anchor.
Earlier, Dr. Patra gave a half-hour speech on the achievements of the three years of Modi government in a program organized by the Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP) Australia at the Thornbury Theatre here.
Dr. Patra addressing the gathering on the ‘ABCD of achievements’ described the demonetization step as one that touched every section of Indian society in its aim to weed out unaccounted money in the country. He then detailed other Modi government programs of rural electrification, girl’s education, ease of doing business, infrastructure development among others.
The BJP leader said India has now arrived on the global scene and it is the Indian civilization based on the Vedic culture that was engulfing the world.
The gathering was also addressed by the OFBJP leaders and political leaders including Gevin Jennings (ALP) Indian Counsel in Melbourne Manika Jain and Inga Peulich (Liberal). A Q-A session scheduled after Dr. Patra’s speech was canceled.
