IT entrepreneur and co-founder of Infosys, N R Narayana Murthy has expressed his desire to see Modi government getting reelected to power in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Answering the question whether he would like Modi to be reelected to the position of Prime Minister, Murthy replied that he greatly admires PM Modi’s discipline, his dedication and commitment towards the nation and cleanliness. “Considering last 5 years, this government’s work, a leader who is focused on economic growth, on cleanliness, on nation and on maintaining coordial relations with our trading partner like China, continuity of the regime will be a good thing,” he said.

Ace investor and the big bull of the Dalal Street, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala had earlier echoed a similar sentiment. In the Indian Economic conclave held in Mumbai, when asked who does he think will be victorious in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 elections, he unequivocally placed his bets on the BJP.

Notwithstanding the recent setbacks in the Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala was optimistic about BJP’s comeback in the 2019 polls. “Remember, the BJP had 15 years of incumbency in Rajasthan and MP. It still managed to capture a large vote share,” Jhunjhunwala said.

The public endorsement by various Business magnates is a major shot in the arm for the Modi government. In October 2018, Bill Gates had publicly lauded Modi government’s Swachh Bharat Mission and urged Indians to build on its success. Last week, outgoing IMF Chief Economist Maurice Obstfeld showered praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government for carrying out fundamental reforms and steering the country on a robust economic trajectory.
