In May 2015, Narendra Modi was addressing the Indian community in Shanghai and here he said that he has given the pride of being an Indian to the Indians settled abroad.
Pointing out that a year ago people were celebrating his victory, he said, ‘One year ago the same voice was being heard from all over the world – “Dukh Bhare Din Beete Re Bhaiya, Dukh Bhare Din Beete Re Bhaiya”. You were living abroad, how was the time? Are you from India? It used to be like this – he is from India, come on man. Was it like this or was it not? Was anyone ready to ask? Was anyone ready to listen? Was anyone ready to watch? Within a year, are you able to talk to the world with your chest stretched and your eyes closed or not? Does the world look at you with respect or not? Do you yourself feel proud of India’s progress or not?’
The Hindu had also published news about this at that time. Website Scroll had told that objection was also raised regarding this statement of Modi.
Modi was in Seoul after this on 18 May 2015. Here too he was talking to the Indian community when he said, ‘Earlier people used to say, don’t know what sins you have committed in your previous births, you were born in India, this is some country! This is some government! These are some people! Come on, go somewhere else!’
This speech can be heard on the official YouTube channel named after him.
He had further said, ‘… and people used to leave, in some years we also used to see that the people of the industry used to say that now we should not do business here, now we should not live here. And most of the people had even put one foot outside. I do not go into the reasons for this. Nor do I want to make any political comment. But it is the reality of the earth that there was a disappointment among the people, there was anger too. And today I can say with confidence that dignitaries from different walks of life, be it big scientists, no matter how much they earn abroad, even if they earn less than that, today they are eager to come back to India. Happening, enjoying.
He had further said, ‘Ye jo mood badla hai, jo mijaaz badla hai. And after all, what is a country! Government does not mean country, Modi does not mean country, 125 crore countrymen only have the feeling of what is Hindustan.
It is about 2022, Modi was in Berlin, Germany, where he targeted the Congress and said that under its rule, Indians used to get the benefit of only 15 paise out of one rupee.
He said in his famous theater style, ‘Woh kaun-sa panja tha… (pausing for audience reaction) Woh kaunsa panja tha jo 85 paise ghis leta tha?’
It is known that the election symbol of Congress is the claw of the hand.
It is about November 2014, when Narendra Modi’s popularity was at its peak. Then for the first time in three decades, an Indian Prime Minister had reached Australia. Modi was addressing the Indian community at Sydney’s Alphonse Arena.
He said here, ‘Earlier governments used to take pride in the fact that we made this law, we made the Dhikna law, we made such and such a law, you must have heard it in all the elections. My car is upside down. He used to enjoy making laws, I enjoy abolishing laws.

Earlier in September 2014, in New York’s Madison Square too, Narendra Modi had talked about breaking the law.
He had said, ‘The earlier governments we had here used to take pride in the fact that we made this law, we made that law, we made such and such a law, we made the Dhikana law. You must have seen in the entire election campaign, these things used to go on… I have started the work of abolishing all the old laws, useless laws. So Outdated Laws! Such a web of laws! Once any poor person goes inside, he cannot come out. I have formed a committee of experts, told them to take them out! If I can end one law every day, then I will be most happy.
Addressing the Indian community in Toronto in 2015, he had said, ‘…those who had to do the dirty, they left after doing the dirty but we will go after cleaning.’

In London in 2018, Narendra Modi had commented on the doctors of the country, on which the anger expressed by the doctors of the country was also recorded by The Wire in one of its reports.
In a video clip that has gone viral on social media, Modi, while talking about the hospital and medicines, says, ‘…the one who writes medicines also gets something. You must be aware that doctors’ conferences are sometimes held in Singapore, sometimes in Dubai. There is someone sick, so they don’t go, it is necessary for pharmaceutical companies, they do it.
The medical associations of the country had registered their displeasure against this statement, terming it as unwanted.
