Why some may criticize Narendra Modi as they do for Nehru

Our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru lead the Indian National Congress and is still considered one of the most popular Prime Minister Congress ever had. Nehru was also known for his clothing sense, style statements, his imported Nehru Jacket and different regional feathered caps and turbans.

All the govt. agencies not only the Indian but America, from security to cleaning, each and every person involved were on their toe, had left not a single stone upturned for smooth and successful journey of the biggest and most powerful person on earth the 'Barack Hussein Obama' the president of United States of America.
