The Narendra Modi government has completed its nine years in office. During this period, the Modi-led government implemented various policies and initiatives across different sectors.
Meanwhile, the Opposition parties including the Congress have opposed the decisions and schemes launched by the Modi-led government. The Congress, on completion of nine years of Modi government, released a brochure as the Narendra Modi government completes nine years in office, posing nine questions about his government’s alleged failure in key areas like the economy, national security, social harmony and democracy.
However, in these nine years, the Modi-led government implemented various policies and initiatives across different sectors including the foreign policy and diplomacy. The government pursued an active foreign policy, strengthening bilateral relationships and engaging in multilateral forums. Initiatives like "Neighborhood First" and "Act East Policy" aimed to enhance regional cooperation and strengthen India's ties with neighboring countries and strategic partners worldwide. Notable diplomatic achievements included hosting the International Solar Alliance and engaging in high-level visits and engagements.
