Wash­ing­ton: In­dia’s “im­pres­sive de­vel­op­ment and in­clu­sive growth” stand at risk if Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi does not get a chance to lead the coun­try af­ter the next year’s par­lia­men­tary elec­tions, a top US in­dus­tri­al­ist has said. John Cham­bers, a for­mer ex­ec­u­tive chair­man and CEO of CISCO Sys­tems said that In­dia has a chance to be the strong­est growth-in­clu­sive coun­try in the world.

John Cham­bers, a for­mer ex­ec­u­tive chair­man and CEO of CISCO Sys­tems said In­dia stands a chance to be the strong­est growth-in­clu­sive coun­try in the world.

“To do that takes at least a decade to put in place. I think your Prime Min­is­ter Modi has to ca­pa­bil­ity of do­ing it. I think he has the coun­try headed in the right way,” he said.

“I think it would be a ma­jor risk not to give him a chance to fin­ish that vi­sion,” Cham­bers said on Thurs­day on the side­lines of the in­au­gu­ral An­nual Lead­er­ship Sum­mit of the US In­dia Strate­gic and Part­ner­ship Fo­rum (USISPF) here of which he is the chair­man.

He was re­spond­ing to a ques­tion what if Modi is not re-elected in the 2019 elec­tions.

“He (Modi) is coura­geous. He wakes up every day think­ing about your coun­try’s fu­ture,” he said.

Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion on In­dia US re­la­tion­ship, there is huge po­ten­tial in this

bi­lat­eral re­la­tion­ship. “The im­pact of this is go­ing to be so large for both na­tions that you will not find small bumps on the way to dis­tract us,” he said.
